GRAB OUR Free E-Book

Learn what it takes to get a drone pilot certificate!  Also included is some great information about where the drone industry is going.

I completed my Advanced Category certification through Coastal Drone. The Coastal Drone teaching materials, including a combination of videos, readings, and practice questions, were extremely professional and of the highest quality. Each section of the course (Basic and Advanced) walks you through the details you need to pass the Transport Canada exam (which is tough) and your flight review. Throughout the course, Coastal Drone provides the information you need to be a better RPAS pilot and to ensure you are flying in a safe and professional manner, which is essential for advancing the use of RPAS in personal, commercial and industry applications. If you are looking to complete a Basic or Advanced certification, I highly recommend Coastal Drone.
