The UK’s leading drone training experts have revealed a dramatic increase in women enrolling on its courses. RUSTA, which offers Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved National Qualified Entity (NQE) training courses covering a wide range of commercial industries and backgrounds, noticed an upsurge in women across the UK registering on its courses in the last 12 months.

Abbie-Jaye Wilson, Video and Photography Manager at creative communications agency, Pic PR, commented: “When I took the course back in 2016, I was the only woman in a group of eight. It’s great to see more women enrolling on RUSTA’s training courses to gain the skills and necessary flying requirements to pilot drones safely and effectively. I thought the course was very well thought out and informative, and the instructors offered an amazing insight into dronography.”
