UAV Industries launches South Africa’s first accredited Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Training

UAV Industries, a leading commercial drone pilot training and operations company, has announced the launch of its accredited Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Training Course, open to all drone pilots in possession of a valid Remote Pilot Licence (RPL). First to market in Africa, the B-VLOS training course is endorsed by both the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SA CAA) and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

PACI and PACInc instructors traveled to Capetown, South Africa last year to attend UAVI’s intensive training program. As the only US company with both SA CAA Remote Pilot Instructors with BVLOS endorsements, and a Part 107 BVLOS waiver for Training, PACI congratulates UAVI’s success and welcomes the opportunity to partner even more in the future.

Praxis works with ground-air-sea-industrial response robotics and unmanned systems in both civil/commercial and defense use. Daniels finds Southern Nevada a good fit because of the community.
