The Advanced pilot certification permits you to fly drones in *higher risk areas*. Once certified, you can fly drones in controlled airspaces, less than 100 feet from people, and near airports. In other words, broader range of areas to fly you can market & commercialize your drone operations to be highly profitable. To get the certification in Canada, you need to pass the advanced exam and then the flight review.
If you’re a candidate seeking to do your flight review, we suggest candidates book flight training.
Flight training With Sugu Drones
Flight training with Sugu drones aims to prepare and evaluate learners for the Transport Canada flight review. The program combines video and class lectures and field practicals for students without prior RPAS flight experience. Some of the topics you learn include.
- Site survey and selection
- Air Traffic Control Coordination
- Preflight checklist and drone usage
- Indoor flying and simulator
If you decide to go directly to flight review, you can register and come with the requirements (more on this later).
We recommend you obtain an *RPAS pilot flight kit to commence the training. Also, ensure you have downloaded the required software like Drone Centre, Google Earth Pro or Quadcopter FX Simulator Pro for Android to practice site surveys and flight techniques. In addition, acquire or rent a remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) of between 250 grams and 25 kilograms for flight training and review evaluation.
