SENASA has recently become a “recognized entity” for UAS training, with which it is included in the list updated by the State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA) with this type of organizations. This designation enables for the provision of training on unmanned aerial systems in national standard scenarios published by AESA. With it, the Agency recognizes the capacities and procedures of SENASA for a correct delivery of theoretical and practical courses on scenarios of the specific category of the Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/947.
In accordance with the new regulatory scheme that regulates the UAS sector, after the entry into force of this European-wide standard, the training allowances previously established by Royal Decree 1036/2017 are limited to the so-called “non-EASA activities”. Thus, in order to deliver courses on activities covered by the new community regulation, a new designation as "recognized entity" is necessary. SENASA, which since 2012 has been offering training to UAS pilots with its approval as a training organization (E-ATO-242), now adds this certification to its capabilities.
The center has recently updated its UAS training catalog, in which it offers training courses and practical skills assessment for remote pilots in the standard national scenarios STS-ES-01 and STS-ES-02. It also provides theoretical training in Subcategory A2, in preparation for the theoretical knowledge exam that the pilot must pass in order to operate in this subcategory included in Regulation 2019/947.
Beyond the regulated training for EASA standard scenarios, the company's catalog includes, among others, specific courses for radiotelephone operators, a course on U-Space (European airspace for drones), courses on specialties in operation and training programs for UAS pilot instructors and examiners.
