Aerobotika’s RPAS Bootcamp takes a comprehensive and hands-on approach to prepare you for the three major disciplines of unmanned aviation – ground school, flight training, and mission execution.

First, a 20-hour ground school, providing you with the in-depth theory and knowledge of aviation, from air law to meteorology. This portion meets Transport Canada’s knowledge requirements for UAV pilots and provides you with an Industry Canada ROC-A radio certificate.
Next, you will dive right in to flight training, taught by some of the industry’s finest UAV pilots. You will learn, hands-on, the essential flight manoeuvres and how to program your aircraft with intelligent flight modes to begin flying like the pros.
Last, you will work together with your class team to coordinate the five steps to a successful operation and culminate the course with a field-based mission from planning to execution.

Why choose a bootcamp?

Our bootcamp combines all the essential training into one course so that you are fully prepared to use your RPAS like a pro.

You will get all the knowledge and theory covered in the ground school, plus you get hands-on training to actually fly your RPAS. You will then learn how to use your RPAS in real practical applications by learning how to plan and execute missions.

This is all done in a week’s time, so you can get right back to work or get started on your new career with your UAV right away.

Who is it for?

You!  Whether you’re a commercial operator looking to add to your resume or you’re brand new to the industry, our bootcamp will equip you with all the necessary knowledge and skills to get started on the right foot. All in one week!

Why do I need it?

Training shows Transport Canada, insurance companies and potential clients you’re serious about safety and have the knowledge to follow through. You will not be able to fly commercially under the exemption rules or the SFOC without a compliant RPAS ground school .
