What sets us apart?
Aerobotika's training was the first in Canada to be designed around the Transport Canada requirements, but we don't stop there. Our training gets very in depth about commercial UAV technology and business practices. The ground school is only the first part of a comprehensive commercial UAV pilot career program and we're one of the few schools on Transport Canada's list of compliant training organizations!
What you'll learn
Our 3-day course equips you with fundamental knowledge in these five areas.
One of the primary ways of ensuring aviation safety is for all operators to have a good grasp of regulations and procedures. The manned aviation industry regulations are currently being amended to apply to unmanned aerial vehicles as well.
