Advanced RPAS Course Description
This advanced-level RPAS ground school program responds to the CAR Part IX regulatory changes made by Transport Canada in 2019, and industry’s technology shift towards safe, effective, and efficient operations.
This online course is designed to provide the student with all of the federally-required knowledge to become a Advanced RPAS Pilot recognized by Transport Canada, and to legally operate a RPAS in Advanced environments in Canada.
In order to be a legally-recognized Advanced RPAS pilot by Transport Canada, a passing mark on both the Advanced RPAS exam administered by Transport Canada, and an in-person Flight Review, is required to successfully obtain your Advanced RPAS Pilot Permit. Upon successful completion, this course gives the student the required knowledge to write the new, on-line Transport Canada exam.
Student Self-Study Requirements: Approximately 20 hours of self-study outside of the class, in addition to the 24 hours of classroom instruction, is advised to successfully pass the Transport Canada Advanced RPAS exam as well as the in-person Flight Review. Previous experience with RPAS flight is highly recommended.
Included in the cost of the course is a 370+ page, full color digital workbook, in addition to a dozen FREE support and planning materials from Transport Canada and NAV Canada.
The course textbook, Unmanned, is about $90 and is available from Calgary Pilot Supply here. The textbook is highly recommended and referenced often during the course, but not mandatory.
Students are highly encouraged to pick-up a recent copy of the Canada Flight Supplement (CFS) (about $20) and a VNC Terminal Area Chart (VTA) (about $20) for your use at home during the course. Both of these resources can also be purchased at Calgary Pilot Supply. A digital version of the CFS is available for purchase through NAV Canada, or with a subscription to an electronic flight bag (EFB), such as Foreflight. All Advanced RPAS pilots are required under the law to have a recent, valid copy of each of these documents, either paper or digital, so it’s a great idea to get them now and learn to use them during the course.
The cost of the in-person Flight Review is not included in the cost of the course.
* Cost of course includes GST and fees
