As applications for UAVs continue to expand, the demand for highly skilled personnel will grow. As such, Moncton Flight College will be collaborating with Professor Li’s team on training, leading the way in developing a certification program for the next generation of UAV operators in Atlantic Canada.
“As today’s investment demonstrates, our government’s record investments in science, technology and innovation are creating new jobs, new opportunities and greater prosperity in Moncton. With this support from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, UNB will develop innovative new drone technology for our forestry sector while training the next generation of drone operators at Moncton Flight College.”
