Sugu Ground School Training:
Sugu is offering drone Ground School training courses at Toronto Buttonville Airport (Ontario) & Toronto Pearson. Select one of our training dates to start flying your drone with proficiency, and skill. Our Ground School training courses adhere to the Transport Canada standards (TP15263E), to ensure you are equipped to fly your drone.
Only drone pilots who need to fly a drone outside the rules for basic or advanced operations will need to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) before they fly.
Transport Canada encourages drone pilots to take the necessary time to review and fully understand the new rules for drones in Canada and to follow a course provided by a drone flight school before attempting to take an online exam or flight review.
All drone pilots are also subject to the Criminal Code as well as all provincial, territorial, and municipal laws governing areas such as privacy and trespassing. Endangering the safety of an aircraft is a serious offence. Anyone who violates the regulations could be subject to additional fines of up to $25,000 and/or prison. This applies to drones of any size used for any purpose.
Ensure you are on the right side of regulation by taking our UAV training courses. Our course is especially relevant for corporations, and civil operators who are looking to photograph/inspect assets, and projects.
The Sugu team is proud to welcome new students, and operators who are interested in proceeding with drone training. Most of all we would like to thank you for visiting our training page for your needs, we look forward to seeing you.
Knowledge test and pilot permit
Under the current rules, pilots of drones/RPAS are required to pass an examination to ensure they have enough knowledge to operate safely.
Pilots who intend to fly in the complex operations category — which includes flying in urban areas or within controlled airspace or close to airports — will need to pass a written knowledge test as well as a flight review. Sugu recommends all students who sign up to our course to order our ground school kit, which includes the unmanned booklet, VNC/VTA, CFS, AIM, & Pilot Log Book.
