This bundle of 100% online at-your-own-pace courses will prepare you to pass your written Transport Canada exam, receive a BASIC Pilot Certification, and to become a safe, knowledgeable drone pilot.   We HIGHLY recommend taking the ground school and exam prep course together.  Our students have found this course combination to be essential.

RPAS Ground School | Basic

Looking into getting into flying a drone for fun or business? The RPAS Ground School | Basic is a great place to start.  Our courses make you feel like you are in the classroom, using high-end video and animations to simulate an intimate teaching experience.  This two-hour course will give you a comprehensive overview of the skills and abilities needed to be a drone pilot, and help you prepare for Transport Canada’s RPAS Basic Exam which you will need to pass in order to start flying legally.  

Exam Prep | Basic

Looking to brush up on your knowledge before your RPAS Basic Category exam? This exam prep course will give you a good idea of the type of questions you can expect and some resources to help you prepare for and use during the exam. This program is not intended to replace a ground school, but it can be used as a refresher or as an opportunity to get some practice in before you take the Transport Canada exam.  You can simulate the exam as many times as you need to feel comfortable before writing the real Transport Canada exam.  Our students find this to be an essential part of their training.

Standard Operating Procedures Guide (SOPs)

This easy to use tool provides guidance on normal and emrgency procedures, and the site survey.  Use these procedures every time you fly, and your life will be much easier. Trust us!

I tried to pass the Small Advanced Exam on my own without studying anything and failed, due to assuming it would just be common sense stuff.  After failing that exam I realized it was no joke.  I decided I should try and learn the material, but had a hard time finding any resources out there.   I found Coastal Drone and decided to check out their Small Basic course and exam prep, and was able to pass my small basic exam on my first attempt after going once through their course…   I look forward to coming back soon for the next course.
