Why UDS aviation
We offer a state-of-the-art training facility, with all theory training being completed at our head office. Practical training is completed at an approved flying field and once qualified, students are given exposure on existing operating sites.
Flexible and dynamic, we offer tailor-made remote pilot license (RPL) training and training schedules adjusted to our clients’ specific corporate requirements, including training after normal business hours and over weekends.
All our instructors have worked within our operation, performing night time aerial surveillance operations and operating a variety of aircraft… we pride ourselves on not just teaching from textbook, but from experience and real operations.

UAV and Drone Solutions (Pty) Ltd (UDS) is proud to have launched a cadet programme in January 2020. The cadet programme’s primary purpose is to enable young BB-BEE candidates the opportunity to obtain their Remote Pilot License (RPL) and enter the aviation industry.
