RAF Remotely Piloted Aircraft System Pilots have a unique and challenging role. They provide air power on behalf of the UK by operating the Reaper, a state-of-the-art medium altitude long endurance remotely piloted aircraft.

Typical Responsibilities:

  • Control the Reaper for persistent intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance and, if required, ground-attack missions worldwide
  • Mission planning and ground based staff duties

[Similar civilian roles include UAV Pilot Operator, Pilot Instructor, System Specialist, Simulator Coordinator. The National Air Traffic Service (NATS) Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) course (UK Module), is designed to instruct operators to a level which will satisfy the safety and operational requirements outlined by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Successful course completion facilitates NATS recommendation to the regulator in order to obtain CAA Permissions/Exemptions for aerial work. Course instruction is provided by Air Traffic Control (ATC) professionals with comprehensive operational RPAS experience, and is designed to facilitate a ‘tailored’ training approach. This enables NATS to satisfy the knowledge requirements of novices and experts alike.]
