Intensive course theory & practice with examination for the EU remote pilot’s certificate A2 and segment deepening (duration 2 days)
FLYING SAFELYmeans: You receive valuable knowledge so that you can take off safely with your drone without running the risk of crashing or losing the drone due to a flyaway (uncontrolled flight). No less important are good flight preparation and a minimum level of knowledge of the rules and regulations of air traffic. The new EU drone regulation has been in force in the EU member states since December 31, 2020. The new regulation also introduced new EU drone driving licenses, which are mandatory for the operation of most drones. With the A2 EU remote pilot’s certificate, for example, in the permit-free open category in urban areas with drones up to 4 kg take-off weight in slow flight mode with max. 10 km / h can even be flown up to 5 m to uninvolved persons.
