“How do I get to fly one of those?”
Said every passing onlooker, ever.
It’s easy to become instantly captivated by drones from the very first glance, hovering above your head, as if suspended from the clouds, but stepping into the pilot’s seat may not seem a straight forward task.
Well, it’s not as difficult as you think (in fact, it’s quite easy), and if you’re thinking of starting a business that uses drones, and you’re looking to get the knowledge you need to fly a small UAV safely, then you’re in luck.
This post will provide a step ahead, to expose the brave new world of ‘Unmanned Aerial Vehicles’ and how they can be practical and useful for your business. As a pilot, previously inaccessible locations will no longer be a challenge, and pursuing the unexplored will become your reward and passion.
It wasn’t too long ago that options for aerial filmmaking were restricted to expensive crews on heavy cranes, and full size helicopters with externally mounted cameras. This limited the indie filmmaker’s creativity, as affording expensive rigs in order to get the shot became out of reach, so to speak.
“As filmmakers, we always want to get that shot where our audiences are struck thinking ‘How did they do that?!’” – writes Ryan Rizzo of Poesis Media. Article on CFC
In the past year Ryan has been constructing a program that adheres to Transport Canada’s strict regulations and guidelines, allowing students Ground School Certification and a restricted radio licence that can be used anywhere in Canada.
Course Curriculum includes:
- Canadian Aviation Regulation (CARs)
- Aeronautical General Knowledge
- Flight and Aerodynamic Theory
- Aeronautical Safety
- Aerodromes and Airports
- Operating and Flight Rules
- Maps and Charts
- Radiotelephony and Radio Theory
- Flight Operations
- Pilot Navigation
- Human Factors
See all that knowledge? It’s entirely accessible to you, and ready for creative applications into your business, or even hobbies. Let us help you achieve the heights you’ve dreamed of reaching.
It hasn’t always been this easy, although the introduction of drones allowed easy control, stability and higher payloads, it was only four years ago that purchasing a drone came with a hefty price tag of $35,000 or more. However, within a short period of time the consumer drone market exploded with numerous platforms and new technologies, quickly changing the game, allowing astonishing stabilization and ease of control that can now be achieved with machines worth less than $4,000.
In other words: Keep your head up! We’re a stone’s throw from a future where consumer drones are ruling the low altitude skies. Get your foot in the door!
