Leonardo has announced that it is extending its training services capabilities to include rotorcraft unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
This will allow the Italian defence conglomerate to offer 360° training solutions to its growing customer base for maximised mission effectiveness and safety.
The Company has recently obtained an Authorized Training Organization Certificate for UAS released by ENAC (Italian National Civil Aviation Authority).
Leonardo is now able to supply training services for light and very light category remotely piloted systems (up to 25 kg) through its Helicopter Training Academy headquartered in Sesto Calende (Northern Italy).
Leonardo is the world’s first rotorcraft OEM with this capability, which is expected to receive EASA approval in 2021.
Leonardo is also developing a comprehensive training package for the AWHERO 200 kg class RUAS.
The AWHERO was also involved in the successful maritime surveillance capability demonstration performed in the framework of the European OCEAN 2020 initiative in the Mediterranean Sea at the end of 2019.
Among the available services, a mission planning system tool based on the Leonardo SkyFlight system will allow customers to include one more operational service for the AWHERO.
