Liarne’s contributions have consistently been a source of insight and aid to hundreds of students who have gone on to help build budding careers not just at various levels of the drone industry, but also throughout the UK’s police forces, Army Reserves, the BBC, and many many more.
From flight practice to operations manuals, Liarne has constantly been at the forefront of RUAS’ training capabilities, adapting the extensive laws and regulations set out by the CAA for all those new to industry.
But not only is Liarne a key member of the RUAS team, but is also a serving Staff Sergeant with the 104 Regiment Royal Artillery, who in the last week has played a vital role in Wales’ representation in the mourning of His Royal Highness, Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
A gun salute, held in Cardiff Castle at midday as part of other events all over the UK to honour the passing of Prince Phillip, was conducted by Liarne and other members of her regiment.
As part of an interview with the BBC, Liarne said, “Obviously today is a very sombre occasion and the circumstances surrounding today are absolutely heartbreaking. However, it is an absolute privilege to lead the country in the mourning for Prince Philip and it is an absolute honour to be part of this parade.”
Attended by First Minister Mark Drakeford, the salute by the 104 Regiment Royal Artillery is Wales’ only saluting regiment, emphasising the momentous honour in being a part of it. Further details on Liarne’s interview with the BBC can be found here: – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk
