What to expect

  • The day starts with a welcome to the school. We will get to know the teacher and the students.
  • Before the practical training we learn a little about drones in general and receive advice from some of the best pilots in the world.
  • Next is the legal knowledge required to properly drone. You will learn about safe drone practices, acquiring rights and software you may need to stay up to date.
  • Time to get hands on with drones. Get comfortable with the basics of flight as you practice.
  • After lunch it’s time to fly! We will start slow with a takeoff and landing; then the basics of movement. What better way to learn what shots work well from the air than to be shooting in the air.
