UAS Education at the French Civil Aviation University

Abstract : The French Civil Aviation University's (ENAC, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile) main objectives are to train personnel specialised in air transport, and to help these specialists adapt to civil aviation's evolution, such as the advent of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) in our skies. This paper shows that in ENAC, education in UAS is carried out in the same way than education in manned aviation topics. The training is divided in main subjects, which are then allocated to each student population according to their future roles: engineers, air traffic controllers, technicians, etc. Teaching is led by skilled personnel and backed up by modern facilities and equipment. This allows ENAC to provide a competent, specialised work force, ready to work on all aspects of the emerging and disruptive UAS-based operations.
