Fixed-Wing UAVs

Fixed-wing UAVs is one of the most requested training programs for aerial reconnaissance units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other defense institutions. We teach how to use fixed-Wing UAVs of Ukrainian and foreign manufacturers for reconnaissance and targets acquisition, aiming and adjusting artillery fire, ensuring situational awareness of units’ intelligence, as well as for hitting protected and hard-to-reach high-priority individual targets.


The goal of the program is to create a professional training platform for the Ukrainian Military universal crews of trained external pilots and operators of ground control stations for fixed-wing and VTOL UAVs. This training aims at assisting and reinforcing the existing state training centers while keeping up with state-of-the art defense solutions and technologies. 


Training takes place according to a standardized program lasting 3 weeks (15 working days). The training is conducted using an average Fixed-Wing UAV, utilizing ArduPilot and Mission Planner.


A successful certified cadet-graduate is considered “80% prepared” and is eligible to undergo training as part of the crew from the TC or the manufacturer for his specific model of UAS.
