Operators of military drones are trained before they can use them, why not to train domestic pilots too? Small drones can be bought online by anybody and a way to assure a minimum level of competence in operating them seems like a good idea.

There are already schools and universities with degrees in drone flying, but the news is an online course to get the drone driver’s license for civil use.
An Italian company launched the first virtual classroom for drone operators, and upon its completion it will be possible to obtain a certificate of competence and capacity. Maybe it will help to avoid accidents, such as this photographer drone crush.

While waiting for more courses, if you are flying a drone you should check out the Drone Survival Guide.

Ine Geevers: #YesNaturally was about co-evolution and partnership. How to become friends with o.a. bacteria, microbes and viruses. Because yes, they can be deadly and vital at the same time.
