FLIGHT REVIEW

All UAV pilots seeking an ADVANCED OPERATIONS licence are required to participate in a two-step testing process. After obtaining a pass on Transport Canada's (TC) online exam, a demonstration of flight skills during a FLIGHT REVIEW is required.

It is only with a “pass” on both TC's online exam and the new FLIGHT REVIEW process that TC will issue a Drone/UAV licence.

MIR Aviation is a TC approved Flight Review Facility.

We have “bundled” this process with a number of training/ exam prep courses, offering better value for the customer however some of our customers will only require a  stand alone Flight Review which can be scheduled.

MIR Aviation will be offering outdoor reviews in Calgary and other locations  on a scheduled basis.

Consider a MIR Aviation Membership for updates on Flight Review’s occurring in your community.
