Learning Path

We are an enterprise partner with RPAS Wilco App, the most advanced site survey app for RPAS flying in Canada. Here, we will teach you how to navigate this app, conduct a site survey, flight plan and take-off!

The App is free for everyone and includes Interactive Map, CFS, VTA, VNC, CWAS, NOTAMs, and METAR.

METAR is a format for reporting weather information. A METAR weather report is predominantly used by aircraft pilots, and by meteorologists, who use aggregated METAR information to assist in weather forecasting. Raw METAR is the most common format in the world for the transmission of observational weather data. 

A Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) is a notice containing information essential to personnel concerned with flight operations but not known far enough in advance to be publicized by other means.

A checklist is a list of tasks that should be performed by pilots and aircrew. Its purpose is to improve flight safety by ensuring that no important tasks are forgotten.

A briefing is done normally before take-off. It would entail weather, equipment, NOTAMs, task, emergency procedures and desired end state.

Emergency procedures are normally memorized by pilots. At RPAS Centre, we have developed a generic but comprehensive procedure that you can follow, should you encounter an emergency while flying your drone.

As the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems, DJI quadcopters like the Phantom are the standard in consumer drone technology.

Most of the drones are small, light, and has enough technology on board to make both flying and shooting with it a joy. It also costs less than a thousand dollars.

Drones are provided for training and you will become very comfortable with them by the end of the class.

Canadian airspace is the region of airspace above the surface of the Earth that falls within a region roughly defined as either the Canadian land mass, the Canadian Arctic or the Canadian archipelago, as well as areas of the high seas.

Airspace is managed by Transport Canada and detailed information regarding exact dimensions and classification is available in the Designated Airspace Handbook which is published every fifty-six days by Nav Canada.

An ATC clearance means an authorization by ATC, for the purpose of preventing collision between known aircraft, for an aircraft to proceed under specified conditions within controlled airspace.

You know the rules, regulations, checklist and the hardware but how do you best operate your RPAS?

At RPAS Centre, we’ve developed the best practices for RPAS Operators over a decade of in-field experience. We want to teach this to you so you can become the best drone pilot that you can be.
