The Remote Pilot Certificate of Competency-BASIC (RCoC-B) allows you to fly the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) or more commonly known as Drone Operations in accordance with the CAAM Civil Aviation Regulation 2016 (MCAR) Regulation 140-144. As such, remote pilots holding a RCoC-B are able to conduct Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) operations within the Specific Category and perform Predefined Risk Assessment (PDRA). The AirAsia Drone Academy RCoC-B course provides a mixture of theory and hands-on, practical assessment. This ensures that remote pilots have the skills and knowledge to operate their drone safely and responsibly.
To gain their RCoC-B, participants must first attend a training course delivered by a Remote Pilot Training Organization (RPTO), such as Airasia Drone Academy. A RPTO is a centre approved by the CAAM to deliver drone training courses and certification.
During this course, participants will learn the essential skills and knowledge needed to operate a drone within the Specific Category. As such, the RCOC-B course introduces participants to factors such as air law and basic principles of flight, plus flight planning and preparation.
