Our Manned Remotely Piloted Aircraft (MRPA) is in action at ITPS Canada! This aircraft may be flown manually or in auto-flight mode through our mobile Ground Control Station (GCS). The aircraft incorporates a modern digital engine display, allowing for mirrored data display in the MRPA cockpit and the GCS.

Based on a Long-EZ design, the MRPA is a favourite of students and our UAS instructors are busy preparing training events for our CAT-2 UAS EQ course students. An important component used in UAS training is the EO/IR sensor, which may also be evaluated during ground-based exercises.
