Took on an UAV VLOS course (drone pilot, with the aircraft within visual line of sight - in human language). Spent whole day in a hospital to get through medical examination yesterday and got papers allowing me to start flying courses.

Starting with extremely boring lectures that are hard to memorise/comprehend due to data overflow (too many small details six hours a day, quite badly introduced at that). Add to it that the instructor looks like Bruce Lee incarnate, which kinda distracts...

Out of 30 hours of the course, 3 are meant for simulated flights and only 3 for real flying. Licence for this type of aircrafts have to be renewed every 5 years, but you get assigned to government pilot list.

Wait, is this for military purposes?

General purpose, allowing for any kind of commercial usage of remote controlled aircrafts. Could be easily extended for military purposes with additional course.

i think a military drone pilot is one of the most disgusting and shameful professions mankind has ever came up with, hope you never go that way

Never been into military service and never considered it a good way for me, so you don't have to worry about that. Always connected drone pilot with searching for lost people or helping fire fighters find people in burning buildings.
