Graduation from the remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) course. A group of around thirty students have been learning everything about the drone universe at the Valencia Polytechnic University. This 320-hour course is taught every four months, and students graduate knowing how to pilot and build their own drone. And what are drones for? “For everything”, says bluntly Israel Quintanilla, Doctor in Geodesic and Cartographic Engineering.
The first graduates of the course, which is jointly directed and taught by airline pilots, industrial engineers, IT and telecommunications specialists, have included everyone from journalists to architects. And a number of engineers too. The course covers much more ground than the 50- or 60-hour courses taught in schools to obtain a certificate to pilot a drone.
Quintanilla highlights that in one year alone, 370 companies for operating drones have been set up in Spain, all authorized by the State Agency for Aerial Security (AEASA), which is responsible for regulating the use of this type of remotely piloted aircraft. “This sector is much in demand and highly crosscutting”.
And to explain their success in such a short period of time he points out: “The advantage of drones is that they're cheaper than satellites, helicopters or planes. The quality is the same or better, as they fly lower. And the key is that I can acquire data when I want, and as many times as I need. Top-quality data at a very low cost”.
