CANADA’S BEST OnLINE DRONE TRAINING

Congratulations!  You are on your way to becoming a certified drone pilot. 

Taking ground school and exam prep courses are an essential part of obtaining your Basic or Advanced pilot certification. 

Our straightforward, instantly available online courses are the fastest way to breeze through the drone pilot licensing process in Canada. These courses are all self-directed so you can learn at your own pace from the comfort of your home.

Become a DRONE Pilot:

 

  1. Choose your weight class of drone,
  2. Choose your category of Operations

Micro-Drones

0 to 249g Category

EXEMPT OPERATIONS

  • Outside of Restricted Airspace (Class F CYR)
  • Operated Safely (CARS 900.06)
  • Within TC Recommendations (TC AIM RPA 2.0)

This category is for the class of drones that are exempt from drone regulations.  This includes the DJI Mavic Mini, the Mini SE, and the Mini 2, as well as the Autel Nano series and many other small low-cost entry-level drones.  If the drone weighs 249g or less ready to fly, this category applies.

There is no minimum age to operate a micro drone, however adult supervision is strongly recommended.

There is no restriction in Canada on operating a micro-drone commercially.

  • INTRODUCTORY TIPS AND TECHNIQUES

Basic Operations

250g to 25kg Category
  • More than 3NM (5KM) from Airports
  • More than 100′ (30M) from Bystanders
  • Outside of Controlled Airspace
  • Never Over People

The majority of drones sold today that are more than 250g fall into this category.  This category is further broken down by both Basic and Advanced operations.

Drones in this category must be operated by a certified RPAS pilot, of a minimum age of 14 or older.

If you aren’t sure if you will proceed into Advanced Operations, this is the minimum requirement to operate a 250-25kg drone in Canada.

Basic certificates are not restricted from commercial operations, if you’re just getting started flying a drone for work away from cities, you can use this certificate.

This course takes approximately 3 hours to complete, and is online and self-paced.  Upon purchase you will receive instant access to both our online learning platform as well as our private student community.  You have access to all of this content for one year; plenty of time to go through the licensing process and learn as you go.

250g to 25kg Category
  • Less than 3NM (5KM) from Airports
  • Less than 100′ (30M) from Bystanders
  • Inside of Controlled Airspace
  • Over People with Safety Declaration

An existing Basic Certificate is not required to write the Advanced exam.  In fact, once you complete the Advanced exam, you will be issued a Basic Certificate until you have passed the in-person flight review.

Pilots must be a minimum of 16 years of age to obtain an Advanced category certificate.

If you intend to apply for an SFOC (Special Flight Operations Certificate) to operate BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) or over 25kg, this is the recommended certification to obtain first.

This course takes approximately 20 hours to complete, and is online and self-paced.  Upon purchase you will receive instant access to both our online learning platform as well as our private student community.
