Ready to get your advanced drone pilot certificate from Transport Canada?

The Canadian Drone Institute can help you or your company get your Transport Canada Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS formerly UAV) advanced drone pilot certificate and Special Flight Operations Certificate.

Our online course is one of the only courses in Canada taught by licensed commercial pilots or a licensed Transport Canada Ground School instructor with live Q & A.

Starting June 1, 2019 all drone pilots flying drones over 250 grams and up to 25KG are required to have a drone pilot certificate from Transport Canada. Currently, If you would like to fly a drone over 25KG you will need a special flight operations certificate. Please contact us directly for help getting your SFOC. 

Getting your advanced drone pilot certificate from Transport Canada consists of two steps -

1. Pass the advanced drone pilot exam with a mark of 80%.

2. Pass your flight review with a Transport Canada compliant school.

Our Transport Canada compliant ground school course prepares you to pass the advanced or basic drone pilot exam through Transport Canada.

Transport Canada strongly recommends using a Transport Canada compliant drone flight training school to help pass your advanced exam. You can find The Canadian Drone Institute listed here on the Transport Canada website.

All courses will have live Q&A sessions with your instructor as well as practice exams to fully prepare you for the advanced drone pilot exam.

If for some reason you cannot attend the course date we will automatically enroll you in the next class of your choice.
