Why use a drone flight school

Drone flight schools offer courses to help you prepare for online exams and flight reviews. We recommend taking a course before attempting an online exam.

In-person flight review

You will need to pass an in-person flight review to receive your Pilot Certificate – Advanced Operations. You can book a flight review by contacting a drone flight school near you.

Foreign pilots

Before the flight review, foreign pilots need to successfully pass the advanced exam and then apply for your SFOC-RPAS (this may take up to 30 working days).

Learn more about how to get permission to fly a drone as a foreign pilot or operator.

What you can expect

Training is specific to how you’ll use your drone. Topics may include:

  • airspace classification and structure
  • weather and notice to airmen (NOTAM) reporting services
  • aeronautical charts and the Canada Flight Supplement
  • relevant sections of the Canadian Aviation Regulations

For more information on what you may learn, read the Knowledge Requirements for Pilots of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.

You may be charged a fee to complete a drone course or a flight review. Fees are set by the drone flight schools or the flight reviewer.
