Pilot's wings to be awarded to RAF's drone controllers

RAF's earthbound pilots get their wings - Telegraph .

....Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, the Chief of the Air Staff, yesterday announced that the RAF is creating a new class of pilots within its Flying Branch for personnel who control unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The new class of personnel will be known as Remotely Piloted Air System Pilots and will have their own badge, bearing the same wings that are given to pilots of conventional aircraft...

...The UAV pilots will still have to gain basic qualifications flying conventional aircraft, but the bulk of their careers will then be spent on the ground....
