Meet some of our the winners

The 30 winners virtually attended theory training sessions covering all aspects of RPAS safety to help them achieve their A2 certificate of competence (A2CofC).

From Scotland to West Sussex, the 30 growers attended one of eight locations to complete their practical drone training experience and test out the prizes they would be receiving. Each of them enjoyed over two hours of 1-to-1 instruction and guidance from a professional RUSTA instructor, learning how to manoeuvre the aircraft whilst checking out its capabilities and flying up to 500m away.
