Small UAV Pilot Ground School

Enrol in Small UAV Pilot Ground School

Course Code: MECH322

As with any aviation pilot related certification, Ground School is where you start. Study the aviation theory and knowledge required by Transport Canada (Ref. TP 15263) for pilots of small UAV systems ("Drones" 25kg or less). Explore the eight areas of required aviation knowledge: Aircraft Structures, Theory of Flight, Radio Communications, Airmanship, Air Law and Human Factors, Meteorology, Air Navigation, Aero Engines. This course exceeds Transport Canada's current UAV Operator certification requirements for Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) operations and meet the more stringent requirements being developed for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
