Taitung Aims to Develop UAS Industry|台東缺無人機考照.訓練場 擬向中央爭取

Taitung County plans to promote professional use of drones and integrate it into tourism, culture, and leisure. However, there are no places inside Taitung where people can train and certify as drone pilots. The county government's first step is to offer a special training course, and it said it will try to secure funds from the central government.

The Taitung County Government recently offered a special course on the application of unmanned aerial vehicles and artificial intelligence for competitions and events for the first time this year. Students piloted eight drones in formation to show what they learned. They learned how to pilot drones in low-light situations and make the drones dance in sync with their flashing lights.

Nighttime drone performances are becoming more and more popular around the world. The Taitung County Government believes that the county's low population density, which means fewer no-fly zones, and its abundant tourism resources make it suitable to develop the UAV application industry there.

The only no-fly zones we have are around airports.

This type of new skill can be developed in conjunction with the local culture.

In March, the county government passed regulations on the supervision of remote-controlled unmanned aircraft systems. However, there are no places inside Taitung where people can train and certify as drone pilots. Having to go elsewhere to do this make the process more costly, and local residents hope the county can offer a drone pilot testing service.

For individuals, this is an additional skill. It can also be applied to other interests.

The county government says the course had a full registration of 30, showing that there is interest and demand in the county. It intends to apply for funds from the central government in order to begin offering drone pilot training and testing services in Taitung and give people the opportunity to become part of this exciting new industry.

台東縣政府今年首次開辦「無人機與AI在賽事活動應用專班」,學員在室內用8台無人機展示群飛的訓練成果,操作無人機在低光源的環境,配合機上各種顏色燈光閃爍,在空中飛舞。

在國內外,類似在夜間無人機展演的活動已經非常盛行,縣府也看好台東縣人口密度低,禁航區較少,而且還有豐富的觀光資源,很適合無人機應用產業的發展。

台東縣交觀處處長 余明勳表示:「我們只有在機場的地方,是不能飛。」

台灣無人機應用發展協會理事長 馮勃表示:「這樣的一個新的技能,能夠跟在地的文化,去做共振共榮。」

今年3月政府頒布了「遙控無人機管理規則」,但能訓練和考證照的地區不多,台東民眾要到外地才能考照,花費不少,民眾希望在台東也能有合格的場地,提供考照服務,才能投入無人機應用產業。

民眾 楊先生表示:「屬於個人的話,就技能的提升,然後可以應用到其他,自己興趣的方面。」

縣府表示,這次成功開辦「無人機與AI在賽事活動應用專班」,接受30人報名額滿,證明台東縣有需求,會向中央爭取在台東設立訓練和考照場域,提供民眾投無人機應用產業的機會。
