Thai regulator certifies new UAS training centre to build awareness of safety

Thailand’s Defence Technology Institute (DTI) has established an Unmanned Aircraft Systems training Centre (DTI-UTC) in response to demand for human resources development required by the Ministry of Interior, agencies related to national security, and general public as well as extensive growth in Unmanned Aircraft Systems or drone usage, according to the Bangkok Post.

Thailand’s first Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training Centre is certified by Approved Training Organisation (ATO) in compliance with regulations prescribed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT). DTI-UTC has also provided two unmanned aircraft lessons, including:

  1. Remote Pilot Licence (RPL), and
  2. Instructor Remote Pilot Licence (IRPL)

Both aim to create awareness in safety and national social responsibility, raise technology and safety to the global standard and achieve the DTI-UTC’s vision as the Defence Technology leader in the region to support the Royal Thai Army and ASEAN alliances.

First training sessions are due to open to the public and Unmanned Aircraft Systems enthusiasts in March 2021.
