We have come to realise that, unlike in manned aviation, the rapid adoption of drone technology in key economic sectors like mining, agriculture and construction has huge opportunities for efficiencies and lowering of operational costs. This new technology has created a huge demand for drone pilots, technicians and data analysts.
In response to this demand, Mzansi has set itself a target of training the next generation of drone workforce that will meet the demands of this growing industry. We plan to achieve this goal through a combination of conventional training methods in collaboration with accredited training organisations and through the use of simulators. Our goal is to lower the cost of drone pilot not to flood the drone job market but to reduce the number of illegal operators, who are threatening the viability of this industry.
