Subjects Covered

Navigation


In Navigation we cover VFR Maps, Airspace, GPS and Satellites. We have an in depth look at Air Space Classification and aviation maps as well as where one can operate a drone or RPAS legally. We also cover different software that the student may operate with their drone with, which includes basic telemetry function.




Meterology


Meteorology is the study of the weather, In this subject we cover weather phenomena, weather reports including TAFs and METARs as well as local weather. We also discuss practical meterological applications for day to day RPAS operations.




Restricted Radio Radiotelephony


Our Restricted Radio Course is done by an Eternal Designated Radiotelephony(RT) Examiner. It is your license to operate a radio while operating an RPAS or manned aircraft. You will learn about the verbal side and phraseology of radio telephony, vital concepts like airspaces and what they mean, air traffic services, flight rules, altimeter setting procedures, flight plans, radio failure procedures, special rules areas as well as search and rescue.




Radio Links


In this subject we cover Radio Frequencies, Polarization, Radio Waves, Antennas and Line of Site operations. This is very important to an RPAS operation because as an operator one has to understand how to manipulate the radio signal and manipulate a receiver in order to get a strong signal link and operate in a safe manner.




Construction of Flight


In Construction of Flight, we cover the basic physics of flight. The syllabus covers all parts of the construction of the Multirotor and Aeroplane, we go in detail through all the components. We also look into the construction of a Multirotor and Aeroplane and discuss the manuals of each RPA.




Air Law


Part 101 covers the function and operations of the RPL holder, in Air Law we cover all parts of the Law, including navigation of the CAA website and a more practical approach as the holder of an RPL.




Battery Procedures


RPAS operations require an understanding of different types of batteries and how to manage and conserve the life span of batteries. We cover a large spectrum of different battery types and also incorporate a practical approach on batteries for use with all types of RC or Drone operations.




Airmanship & Field Ops Pack


This is in preparation for the DFE Test, we take the student through how to prepare for the actual DFE Test. We cover Airmanship in detail as well as we take a in depth look into preparing the student for the DFE Test. We cover how the student will use this preparation work to do their flight operations going forward in an operational environment with safety being the core focus.




Human Performance


This theory subject is one of the more interesting ones as it deals with human behavior, limitations, stress and basic human anatomy. We also have a look at basic Crew Resource Management (CRM), psychology and learning styles.





Practical Training

One on One Instruction with professional flight instructors.

Our training packages incorporate unlimited practical training sessions, allowing students to complete their training without having to worry about any additional costs.

Aircraft Rating Options

Multirotor

(Y6 or 4 bladed multirotor)

Aeroplane

& Aeroplane Rating

DFE Skills Test

Once ready, students will undergo a check flight by a qualified designated flight examiner (DFE) where their knowledge of the rules, regulations, airmanship & flight ability will be tested and evaluated in accordance with the SACAA Part 101 skills test form.

Passing this test will qualify students to complete an application for a Remote Pilots License (RPL), which enables a career within a company that has a Remote Operating Certificate (ROC).
