NEW BASIC PILOT TRAINING

(Course Under Development)
 

Do you know where and when to fly a RPAS/UAV for fun?
Do you possess the skills to enjoy flying your RPAS/UAV?
Do you understand what knowledge you are legislated to have before starting to fly?
MIR Aviation is offering training for new pilots engaged in non-regulated RPAS/UAV activities. We will answer the questions of where and when to fly so you are compliant with Transport Canada regulations.
There are huge legal implications with costly fines if you fly in the wrong place or at the wrong time. Ignorance is not an acceptable defense.
MIR Aviation will help you understand the RPAS/UAV, its settings and capabilities. Many first time pilots have learnt quickly that flying a "drone" (correctly called an RPAS in Aviation)  is not as easy as you may think.
Save money in costly repairs, and unnecessary fines by taking a NEW PILOT training course.

Available summer of 2019.

 

MIR Aviation ensures our customers obtain the knowledge required to use the RPAS/UAV equipment, while providing safe, and regulation compliant operations.

"MIR Aviation are true professionals. I am a university researcher using drones to document heritage at risk in Alberta and the Canadian Arctic. MIR Aviation provided top notch instruction and support to members of our research group, ensuring we had all of the necessary information and training to fly safe and meet all current government regulations. David has even assisted us with several important heritage documentation projects - I can't recommend MIR Aviation strongly enough. "
