The UK’s first International Air & Space Training Institute (IASTI) Newark partners with a world leader in Remotely Piloted Aircraft System training and operations.

IASTI Newark and Eagle Eye Innovations (EEI) are to collaborate in developing study programmes for the next generation of aviation professionals.

The IASTI enables students to learn from aviation industry experts and to get hands-on experience as they develop the skills needed to become pilots, engineers or flight dispatchers, leading to Level 3 Diplomas in Aviation Operations or Aircraft Maintenance. The initiative sees bespoke programmes co-designed by the best in the aviation and wider aerospace sector, to provide a sustainable talent pipeline.

Eagle Eye Innovations

EEI are the only company who specialise in training and operations across all genres and classifications of Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). Operating globally, EEI have a unique set of skills that make them a world leader on all matters relating to RPAS.

Alex Kasperczyk, Director of Business Development at EEI, said:

“Eagle Eye Innovations (EEI) is delighted to announce that we have accepted an invitation from the International Air & Space Training Institute (IASTI) Newark to become a key industry support partner on the Employer Board. The leading knowledge and training that EEI provides in the field of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), as a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) accredited training organisation in the commercial sector and by providing support to operations in the defence sector, compliments IASTI’s objective to provide world class training for the air and space industry.

“We are proud to be invited to become a member of the Board and are looking forward to helping shape the future of the RPAS industry by supporting valuable opportunities to people through education.”

EEI join the Royal Air Force, East Midlands Airport, Inzpire, AAR, Leonardo, Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and the National Space Centre as key industry supporters of IASTI Newark.

Ross Tarnowski, Head of Learning and Skills at IASTI Newark, said:

“It is excellent to have Eagle Eye Innovations (EEI) join us as a key industry support partner and stakeholder. The expertise that EEI have as world leaders in Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) technology will be invaluable. We will be considering collaborations and synergies together in developing courses and programmes for the next generation of aviation professionals across the whole spectrum of this exciting industry.

“I am looking forward to developing the relationship with Sion Roberts (Founder and CEO of EEI) and his team as we move forward together in evolving industry led training to produce highly skilled and productive people for the industry.” 


The IASTI is one of nine priority projects developed by Newark Towns Fund Board and is funded through the Government’s Towns Fund initiative. A planning application, which will see a world class premises for IASTI built in the Centre of Newark by 2023, has just been submitted to the district council.

Until then students are based at the interim IASTI facility at the Newark College campus, where classrooms and workshops have been developed to include industry standard equipment, including a flight simulator, engines and aircraft cabin modules.
