RPAS pilot future profiles

RPAS pilot future profiles

How is the role of the RPAS going to be impacted by the transition towards the development of the U-Space infrastructure? Within the Skill-UP project, we have developed three personas, with Mary Jane representing new entrants and Oscar and Marco representing professional RPAS pilots. Under each persona you can read about the main required competences, knowledge and skills necessary to undertake the essential tasks in this new operational scenario. Select one of the personas and the training path you would like to explore.
