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.
