COMMERCIAL UAV TRAINING

INDUSTRY LEADING AVIATION TRAINING

*****ALL COMMERCIAL UAV/DRONE OPERATORS IN CANADA MUST COMPLETE 'COMPLIANT OPERATORS' GROUND SCHOOL IN 2017*****

Online and In Classroom Courses Available

Canadian UAVs has partnered with Mountain View Helicopters to provide industry leading UAV pilot training. Mountain View Helicopters has been training helicopter pilots since 1995 and subsequently has a great wealth of aviation knowledge. UAVs ARE AIRCRAFT and they do fly in the same airspace as manned aircraft. In order to be a commercially compliant pilot, you need to get trained by the people with extensive understanding of the industry.  

This course will pay for itself as you'll be a more capable and better prepared pilot going forward; this will reduce your insurance over time and it will prepare you to operate lawfully in the national airspace. Learn from professional pilots with decades of experience enabling you to understand today's risks and challenges while preparing you for tomorrow's rewards.

ONLINE TRAINING

CANADIAN UAVS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE OUR ONLINE COMPLIANT OPERATORS COURSE

The course offers the same training material as our in-classroom course with narrations and chapter quizzes. This online medium enables you to take the course at your own pace and convenience.

As we are not allowed to issue the Radio Operator's Certificate exam online as it is a governtment test that must be adminastered in person. You will be required to set up this in person examination independently. 

Restricted Operator Certificate - Aeronautical (ROC-A)

I am interested in taking the Restricted Operator Certificate - Aeronautical (ROC-A) examination?  How can I prepare myself for the exam and where can it be administered?  Also, is there an associated cost for the examination?

In order to prepare for the ROC-A exam, it is recommended that you study the Radio Information Circular 21 (RIC-21) Study Guide for the Restricted Operator Certificate With Aeronautical Qualification (ROC-A). You can search for an examiner in your area from the Accredited Examiners page. The ROC-A examination may consist of written, practical, and oral exercises.  Accredited examiners may charge a fee in order to recover the cost of administering an examination.

I require a copy of a certificate after writing my exam and I understand that an Accredited Examiner is not authorized to issue a temporary certificate.  What does the examiner give me if I need a copy of my certificate by the end of the week?

The examiner is to email the temporary certificate request by providing the new certificate confirmation number to the Radio Operator Certificate Service Centre.  The certificate will be produced and sent to you by fax or email and the original copy of your certificate will be sent by mail.

I would like to apply to become an accredited radio operator certificate examiner (aeronautical) to administer and mark exams on behalf of my employer.  Please advise me as to what the procedures are?

To become an Accredited Examiner one must hold a ROC-A.  RIC-20 Guide for Examiners Conducting Examinations for the Radiotelephone Operator's Restricted Certificate (Aeronautical) is the document that gives information for Accredited Examiners. Please submit an application to become an accredited examiner which can be found on the Accredited Examiners page.

You will then be contacted by an Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada Spectrum Management Officer to schedule a briefing session.  Please review the RIC-20 as well as RIC-21 Study Guide for the Restricted Operator Certificate With Aeronautical Qualification (ROC-A) before your briefing. Once your briefing session is completed and the officer has approved you as an accredited examiner, you will receive an examiner package and authorization letter from the Radio Operator Certificate Service Centre (ROCSC).

I lost my Radio Operator Certificate - Aeronautical (ROC-A) and would like a new copy.  How do I go about getting a copy mailed to me?

You may submit a request to have your certificate reprinted and mailed to you from the Professional Radio Operators Services page. If you have not already created a user account you can do so from the My Account page.

·         This is a list of common words in civil aviation and air travel terminology. Definitions were assembled from many sources

4.    Basic Aerodynamics

·         Basic aerodynamics is an integration of mathematics, Geometry, Basic electricity and physics etc. We will be more likely to concentrate on the aspects of the aerodynamic related subject matters to obtain the desired results. That means we will be going over the basics of the physics subjects which requires us to understand the operational criteria of an aircraft.

5.    Parts and functions of aircraft

·         States the parts and functions

6.    Airworthiness

·         Definition of air worthiness and operation

7.    Theory of flight

·          The first chapter provides a description of aerodynamic forces and deals with concepts such as acceleration, velocity, and forces of flight. The second chapter is -devoted to the discussion o properties of the atmosphere.
