Drone Training in Canada: UAV Ground School

When most people are thinking about buying a drone, they do some research first.  They want to know which UAV is the best, or the cheapest, or the best value.  Once they have an idea about which drone to buy, they will inevitably look at what they need next. 

Drone training. Learn to fly.

Whether you plan on flying a drone for work or research, you must complete a UAV Ground School training program.  M3 Aerial Productions Inc. will provide you with the knowledge you need to operate UAVs commercially, in a safe and reliable manner within Canadian airspace.

Is M3 Aerial a good drone training school?

M3 Aerial UAV Ground School is one of a handful of Transport Compliant professional flight schools in Canada, and is the only school that also offers university credit courses (through Brandon University - inquire for information about that by filling in the form at the bottom of this blog).  We have designed our course specifically for UAV pilots, because we are UAV pilots.  We understand the trials and tribulations that you will experience as you progress through the drone industry in Canada. 

Our course will provide you with practical information on how to operate a drone commercially, either under the Transport Canada Exemptions, or under your Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC).

What is included in the drone training?

We cover many important topics throughout the course; essentially, everything you need to get started in the UAV business in Canada.  The course covers all of the requirements from the Transport Canada document TP 15263: "Knowledge Requirements for Unmanned Air Vehicle Systems...", and topics include:

How do I apply for an SFOC?
