In sectors such as hospitality and aviation, the pandemic has wreaked great havoc, and workers are constantly looking for opportunities in other sectors. And COPTRZ is trying to ride the interest, in a way that benefits everyone: they offer a free e-learning drone management course because they believe COVID-19 will accelerate the growth of the drone sector in the long run. Price Waterhouse Coopers forecasts that the UK drone industry will generate £ 43bn in growth, resulting in a net cost savings of £ 16bn for the economy. By 2030, 628,000 new jobs are expected thanks to this industry.
