The Air League and Eagle Eye Innovations Launch 2024 Drone Scholarship Programme


We are delighted to announce that the 2024 Drone Scholarships, supported by Eagle Eye Innovations, are now open for applications!

This year, we are offering 10 Scholarships to provide individuals with an opportunity to explore the career pathway options within the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) sector and gain a Class A2 C of C qualification, the perfect starting qualification for a career in the industry. The Scholarships will take place with Eagle Eye Innovations in Lincolnshire in August, with accommodation provided.

Eagle Eye Innovations is the only company specialising in all genres and classifications of drone technology. EEI Academy instructors have over 120 years of military experience and thousands of hours experience operating a large variety of drones in both a commercial and operational setting. Eagle Eye Innovations have expertise on all matters relating to drones, drone training and drone surveying within the team ranging from the Mavic Mini through to the MQ-9 Reaper. The company have been operating both nationally and globally since 2013 and are the longest running CAA approved drone training and consultancy organisation in the UK.

The A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 C of C) is an entry-level qualification and allows an operator to fly their drone in the A2 category (Close to People). This is a one-day course that culminates in an examination. This course gives you the extra knowledge required by the CAA to operate in the A2 category. Three modules will be taught covering:

  • Meteorology
  • RPAS Flight Performance
  • RPAS Operating Principles

This is a great introduction into the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) sector. Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) have demonstrated their importance in recent military operations, particularly for surveillance and information gathering. RPAS can also offer a wide range of civil applications such as infrastructure surveillance, firefighting, disaster or environmental monitoring, as well as border control and management.

Applications close on Sunday 30th June 2024, with the Scholarships taking place in August 2024.
