New certified drone pilots - the result of the "Apeiron" University project
On Saturday, May 27, the training for a certified drone operator/pilot was completed in East Sarajevo, organized by the Department for Research in Traffic Engineering and Other Technical Sciences of the Scientific Research Institute of the Pan-European University "Apeiron". The first certified drone pilots who underwent training are citizens, students, members of SIPA, the State Agency for Investigation and Protection, employees of public and private companies - Forests of the Republika Srpska, Brod Oil Refinery, Tourist Organization of the City of East Sarajevo, Center for Culture and information East Ilidža, Agency for cultural, historical and natural heritage Jajce, members of Aero club Željava Bihać, members of Civil protection Gornji Vakuf.
The same education was held last weekend in Banja Luka, and in Bijeljina on May 12. In the near future, "Apeiron" will continue training new participants.
Theoretical and practical drone flying training includes 20 hours of instruction and is fully in accordance with the current regulations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and European Union standards in the field of drone flying.
Education is open to all citizens over the age of 16 and to legal entities and entrepreneurs who want to provide training to their employees.
"This is a new project, the first of its kind in the Republic of Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and it is the contribution of Apeiron University to the legalization and safety of drone flying. About 300 drones are registered in our area, which is estimated to be 10% of the total number of drones in use without any organized education by educational institutions, and this gives activities like ours increasing social importance. The training university owns drones of the latest generation DJI mini DRON, and the classes are conducted by international instructors for drone control," emphasized prof. Danislav Drašković, Ph.D., project manager of the program and dean of the Faculty of Traffic of the University "Apeiron".
