Drone Certification: Kenyan academy receives the remote operators certificate from KCAA

23, Apr 2021

Kenya’s unmanned aircraft academy drone space has received the remote operators certificate from the Kenya civil aviation authority for commercial drone operations. The academies Chief Executive Officer Tony Mwangi says that the landmark certification is a critical step in the use of drones to provide solutions to everyday challenges. The Ceo added that even though flying a drone in Kenya is legal, commercial drone operations require a pilot to obtain a remote operator certificate from the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority which authorizes an operator to carry out specified drone operations.
