Resource Group’s Unmanned Aviation Services division is a training organisation for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) - commonly known as drones. We operate a Remote Pilot Qualification (RPQ) training programme and are a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) National Qualified Entity for Small Unmanned Aircraft (NQE SUA).
The UK drone industry is expanding at an exponential rate in a wide range of commercial sectors. Drones are increasingly being used in security, aerial photography, geospatial mapping and surveys, construction, property management, commercial inspection, environmental monitoring, incident management support, event filming and many more.
