Have a question we haven’t addressed?

The answer to this question is – that it depends. In the United States, Canada, and many other countries, any drone that weighs between 250g and 25kg must have a drone pilot license to fly legally. The classification of the drone pilot license that you will need will depend on a few key factors, including whether you will be flying your drone in controlled or uncontrolled airspace and whether you will be flying your drone recreationally or for commercial purposes.  

We recommend that all aspiring drone pilots obtain the highest classification of drone pilot license available in your country or region. In the United States, this would be the FAA Part 107 license. In Canada, this would be the Transport Canada Advanced RPAS Pilot Certificate. While this may sound challenging, you should have no difficulty obtaining either of these drone pilot certifications with a bit of hard work and study. Volatus Aerospace offers a range of FREE study resources [link to HVCOs] and paid training content [link to Part 107 and Advanced RPAS courses in Shopify]  designed to help you pass your FAA Part 107 and/or Transport Canada Advanced RPAS exams.

Testimonials from our recent drone training students

"Task Force Drone Training enabled me to easily gain my advanced RPAS certification from Transport Canada. The instructors were highly knowledgeable and experienced, allowing me to gain a better understanding of flight principles, mission planning and emergency procedures. The hands-on training with the Volatus provided aircraft was invaluable and provided me with the confidence to operate larger systems in various areas and scenarios. I highly recommend this course to anyone either starting out in the field or looking to advance their knowledge and skills in remotely piloted aircraft."

Darren Lemiex

"I went into this course with no previous drone or aviation knowledge. My intention was to use the skills gained to learn a new hobby or even, eventually some minor side gigs for aerial photography. Now that I have dipped my toes in RPAS and advanced drone operations, I found myself wanting more; more training, experience, and moving beyond just a simple hobby. My training staff were top-notch and clearly SME's in their field. The built-to-veterans course was a comfortable environment with camaraderie and team learning. I now have a solid foundation to build on and will pursue further training matter through the Volatus Training Academy."

Mike Taylor, CD

"After 26 years in the military, I didn't expect all that much from the ground school. However, I was thoroughly impressed with both the instruction received and the study material. I can't wait to take more courses!"
