RCOC-B Basic (Drone/UAS)

The Remote Pilot Certificate of Competency-BASIC (RCoC-B) allows you to fly the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) or more commonly known as Drone Operations in accordance with the CAAM Civil Aviation Regulation 2016 (MCAR) Regulation 140-144. As such, remote pilots holding a RCoC-B are able to conduct Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) operations within the Specific Category and perform Predefined Risk Assessment (PDRA). The AirAsia Drone Academy RCoC-B course provides a mixture of theory and hands-on, practical assessment. This ensures that remote pilots have the skills and knowledge to operate their drone safely and responsibly.

As our syllabus is approved by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia, participants of this course are on the right path for this purpose.

Is the certificate obtained recognized internationally or just by the Malaysia Government?

The certificate is currently recognized and endorsed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia only.
