This 15 hours (5 sessions x 3 hours) professional drone flying course is a combined course where you will start with the basics of the drone flying to advanced flight practices along with a commercial drone operator license.

This is an immersive course meant for first-time drone pilots and upon successful completion, you will gain a complete understanding of RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) functionality, safe practices, and regulatory constraints.

This course covers basic to advanced piloting maneuvers and recovery techniques as well as more in-depth knowledge about remote aircraft. All sessions are taught by professional drone pilots who will show you how to pilot a drone in manual mode and share their personal tips and tricks. The course fee includes 5 additional flying sessions at the Sanad flying field & Commerical certification.

Course outline:

  • Day 1: Fleet management and technicalities
    On day one, you will learn to manage a drone department for an organization as well as learn essential technical details.
  • Day 2: Advanced Flight modes (ATTi)
    On the second day of the professional course, candidates will be introduced to manual flights.
  • Day 3: Flight Practice
    The third day is spent mostly outdoors, performing flight practice. Candidates learn advanced piloting and recovery techniques.
  • Day 4: Flight Practice
    Candidates will be introduced to manual flights and try out flight missions, radar reading, and emergency landing techniques
  • Day 5: Flight Test
    The last day begins with flight practice to ensure candidates are able to demonstrate skills learned throughout.
    • MCQ: The first module includes an online multiple choice theory assessment which will include 30 questions.
    • Simulation: After passing the theory examination, candidates must prove their practical skills on Sanad simulators.
    • Flight Test: Candidates will be tested on advanced flight handling techniques and must also demonstrate flight safety.
    • Once you are Sanad Certified this means you have met the requirements to register your RPAS as a commercial operator.
