Using drones to check stock, fences and water on farms is soaring but flying one is not as easy as it looks. To help with this, NSW Farmers and Tocal are working with Ben Watts and his company Bralca to offer specialised drone training courses for farmers.
An increasing number of farmers are turning to drone technology as a way to manage their farms, but flying one is not as easy as it appears with specialised drone training and a knowledge of Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) rules and regulations crucial.
To help farmers learn more about drones and better understand their uses and benefits, NSW Farmers has teamed up with Tocal College, and Ben Watts and his company Bralca – located near the Central West town of Molong – to offer specialised drone training programmes.
