We have a very high standard of learning, partnering with one of the largest, and highly esteemed aircraft pilot training schools in Canada, Harv's Air.  

Drone pilots will complete online training, as well as an in-class session in order to receive their certificate of completion.  This certificate can be used by the student when they are applying for their Canadian drone liability insurance, as well as their SFOC from Transport Canada.

What does the training consist of?

The online self-study section will focus on Transport Canada document TC15263, Knowledge Requirements for Pilots of Unmanned Air Vehicle Systems - UAV 25kg or Less, Operating within Visual Line of Sight.  The in-class portion will consist of sections on mission planning, pre-flight/post-flight operations protocol, how to communicate with NAV CANADA, UAV flight scenarios, the NEW National Special Flight Operation Certificate Application process, and more!

How much does the Drone Training cost?

Cost of the course is $550 and includes lunch and refreshments on both days.
