Drone training courses
A1/A3 Professional Drone Pilot Basic Course (Open Category)
To operate in the ‘open’ category of civil drones you will need to be trained as a pilot. You have a choice of 2 drone courses:
With the Basic Professional Drone Pilot Course (A1, A3) you will obtain the minimum and necessary certificate to fly drones over 250 grams and up to 25 kg (class 0 to class 4) and always away from any urban environment.
With this course you will acquire an accreditation to fly drones in ‘open’ category in Spain and Europe.
The training will be 100% online and will last 15 hours, with videos, supporting syllabus and a final exam of 40 multiple-choice questions and a syllabus consisting of the following topics:
- Aviation security
- Airspace restrictions
- Aviation regulation
- Human performance limitations
- Operational procedures
- General knowledge of UAS
- Privacy and data protection
- Insurance and protection.
A2 professional drone pilot course (‘open’ category)
The A2 Professional Drone Pilot Course will allow you to fly drones up to 4 kg (class C2) near urban environments (public roads, recreational areas, houses, buildings or other constructions), in the A2 ‘open’ category. It has the following requirements:
- Be over 16 years of age
- Be in possession of the Basic Professional Drone Pilot Course A1/A3.
The course has a recommended duration of 20 hours and the training will be 100% online with explanatory videos to help you learn, self-tests and a preparatory video tutorial prior to the exam. The agenda consists of the following topics:
- UAS flight performance
- Technical mitigations and ground risk operations
Professional drone pilot course STS (specific category)
With this course you will be able to fly in the ‘specific’ category and qualify for professional flights. You will be able to work in specialised sectors and carry out work in precision agriculture, topography and emergencies, technical inspections, and participate in audiovisual projects.
It has a theoretical part and a practical STS drone pilot exam.
Official Professional Drone Radio Operator Course
This course enables you to communicate by radio with the control tower. This course is essential if you want to apply for a permit to fly in CTR (controlled traffic region), or within the limits of the control tower of an airport or aerodrome.
Technical and precision drone courses
Nowadays, these courses are a great opportunity to enter the world of work with drones as a tool, as they are specific professions that are in great demand and where there is still a lack of professionals to cover the demand that exists in all sectors.
In my article on photogrammetry with drones I explain in more detail the applications of photogrammetry with drones. I really recommend you to take a look at it if you want to work in this sector.
Don’t forget to use the promotional code ‘javiergomiz’ to get 5% discount on all your Aerocameras courses.
Aeronautical management” drone courses
Aerocamaras also has an agency service, which is very necessary in the aeronautical sector due to the amount of “paperwork” we have to deal with in the days and weeks prior to a flight.
Much of this paperwork is highly technical and we are asked to provide information that we do not have or that can be an odyssey to find on our own, for example:
- Apply for an EAS (aeronautical safety study) to fly in a CTR area or aerodrome.
- Formalising professional drone operator licensing and management
- Arranging and taking out liability insurance for drones
If you don’t want any hassle let Aerocameras do it for you.
These are the main and most demanded courses that Aerocámaras has.
