Another 10 thousand UAV pilots undergo professional training

Another 10 thousand UAV pilots undergo professional training

The Army of Drones is launching a new stage of training for UAV operators. The military will undergo theory and practice and learn to operate not only copters, but also FPV drones and aircraft-type drones. They will be able to use the developed skills at the front.

Over 10 months of work together with 26 UAV Operator Training Centers, we have already trained 10,000 drone operators. They are now effectively performing tasks at the front line.

New approaches

What is innovative about the second stage? Previously, most of the training was focused on flying reconnaissance-class copters, but now new categories are being introduced – FPV drones and bomber aircraft. FPV drones are fast and maneuverable, hitting their targets with sniper-like accuracy and destroying millions of dollars worth of Russian equipment. The bomber aircraft also demonstrate excellent results, destroying the occupiers in all parts of the frontline.

Now 7,600 operators will learn to fly conventional reconnaissance copters Mavic/Matrice/Autel. 2,000 operators will launch FPV drones, and another 400 pilots will fly bombers. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov:

“Our goal is more drones and more operators.”

The importance of training

Training is an important part of the Drone Army project. Only professional operators can minimize drone shootdowns, losses due to electronic warfare, and effectively control drones for reconnaissance, artillery adjustment, and destruction of Russian equipment.

The drone army continues to develop a “money follows the military” approach. That is, a soldier can choose one of 26 private schools, and the organization will pay for his education. To support the development of the schools, during the second stage, they will be paid twice as much for training operators. This is how the business will invest in development and scaling.

“We want the development of UAVs not only in production but also in education to become part of the state’s educational program,” says Fedorov.
