Why take a flying lesson?​

Since June 1, 2019, Transport Canada has regulated the use of drones. It applies to all users wanting to fly devices over 250 grams for pleasure, work or research. Because drones are considered aircrafts, you need to know and understand the rules to follow in order to be safe and respect all aircrafts that are in the same airspace as you.

Tecnic Driving Schools are proud to partner* with KoptR Image to offer one-on-one training for both leisure and work.

KoptR’s drone experts will provide you with the industry's most comprehensive training. It is through this training that you will have the best chance of passing the mandatory Transport Canada exam.

Training programs offered:

Basic drone pilot course
Duration: 24 hours
Price: $499 + taxes

In Canada, Transports Canada manages everything in the airspace. As soon as you fly a drone that weighs more than 250 grams, you must comply with several rules. You should take a course to learn about the rules and how to use your drone safely.

This basic training will allow you to fly outside controlled airspace (Class G), more than 5km from airports and at a horizontal distance of at least 100ft. (30m) from anyone who does not participate in your project.

As part of this basic pilot program, we guarantee the success of Transport Canada's online exam. In case of a first failure, you will get another training day free of charge.
