Ground School Training at Phoenix UAV Centre

The aim of the Ground School is to enable Pilots and staff associated with UAS/RPAS flight operations to achieve the level required to operate safely in the regulatory and operational environments that they are most likely to encounter. The course is currently two days in duration and consists of eight subject modules and four multi-choice exams. All course materials are provided.

The main topics that make up the Ground Theory Syllabus are as follows;

  • Aircraft Knowledge
  • UAS Airspace Operating Principles
  • Air Law
  • Airmanship and Aviation Safety
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation and Charts
  • Human Factors
  • Operational Procedures

The level and degree that each subject is dealt with is commensurate with the types of operation applicable mainly to the Visual Line of Sight scenario.

The Ground School can be done here, or at one of The Aerial Academy´s many venues around the country prior to your arrival for Flight Training and Operational Assessment.
