This first-of-its-kind training program is specifically designed for Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and other officers, aiming to modernise the operations of the armed forces. 

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati, in collaboration with EduRade, a brand owned by RC HobbyTech Solutions Pvt. Ltd. and incubated at IIT Guwahati Research Park, has launched India’s largest Remote Pilot Training Organization (RPTO). The RPTO, spanning across 18 acres, has the capability to fly 9 medium-class drones simultaneously. 

Primary objective is to promote the advancement of drone technology in India, aligning with Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi’s vision to establish India as a global drone hub by 2030. This initiative contributes to the recently launched ‘Namo Drone Didi’ initiative.

The IIT Guwahati RPTO is dedicated to transforming drone training, aiming to equip individuals with essential expertise. Initially, the RPTO will introduce a DGCA-Certified Medium Class Drone Pilot Training Course, tailored to enhance the skills of youth in the North East and other regions of India. It will also cater specifically to women from self-help groups (SHGs) engaged in agriculture, identified under the Namo Drone Didi Yojna. 

Upon completion of the course, students will be awarded a Remote Pilot Certificate (RPC) sanctioned by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India, authorising them to legally operate drones and pursue a career as Certified Drone Pilots.

IIT Guwahati is currently hosting a groundbreaking drone training initiative tailored for diverse defence personnel. This innovative three-month training program, a first-of-its-kind, is specifically designed for Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and other officers, aiming to modernise the operations of the armed forces. 

The program emphasises comprehensive training on various aspects of drone technologies, including pilot training, software operations, and applications. Participants will benefit from an exhaustive curriculum aimed at preparing them for post-retirement career options, equipping them with the necessary knowledge, perception, and vision to excel in the dynamic drone industry or pursue endeavours as technology entrepreneurs.

The IITG-RPTO plans to launch a diverse range of drone-based courses aimed at catering to various skill levels and interests, thereby ensuring comprehensive education and upskilling opportunities for individuals.
