MDA to hire drone operator/instructors for Canadian drones

MacDonald Dettwiler, the Canadian partner of Israeli Aircraft Industries, has posted a job vacancy for a ‘UAV Payload Operator Instructor’ .

Among the operator instructor’s roles would be to train additional operators, ab initio, (from ‘scratch’).

The candidate hired would have to train for four months in Israel, and be willing to deploy to Afghanistan.

Note  that there are no educational qualifications listed, but clearly the posting if intended for people who are already drone operators, and have a military/defence background.

The job was posted in May, 2010 and reposted in September, 2010, suggesting that MDA is having trouble filling the position.

The person hired would work with MDA employees already in Afghanistan.
