Thailand’s first Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training Centre (DTI-UTC) takes off with new training sessions for the public

The Defence Technology Institute Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training Centre (DTI-UTC) was established in response to rising demand for human resources development required by the Ministry of Interior, agencies related to national security, and general public as well as extensive growth in Unmanned Aircraft Systems or drone usage.

Thailand’s first Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training Centre is certified by Approved Training Organisation (ATO) in compliance with regulations prescribed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT). DTI-UTC has also provided two unmanned aircraft lessons, including 1. Remote Pilot Licence (RPL), and 2. Instructor Remote Pilot Licence (IRPL) to create awareness in safety and national social responsibility, raise technology and safety to the global standard and achieve the DTI-UTC’s vision as the Defence Technology leader in the region to support the Royal Thai Army and ASEAN alliances.   

On 24 September 2020, DTI-UTC, led by General Porpol Maneerin, Chairman of the Board of Directors, hosted a ceremony awarding Certificates of Training Organisation Approval. Air Chief Marshal Preecha Pradabmook, Director-General, Defence Technology Institute, received a certificate presented by Dr. Chula Sukmanop, Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand, at Grand Diamond Ballroom, Impact Forum Building. 

The new training sessions hosted by DTI-UTC will be open for the public and other Unmanned Aircraft Systems enthusiasts in March 2021. For more information, please visit www.dti.or.th and Facebook Fan Page: Defence Technology Institute.
