Phase 1 – Theory (7 Days Total)
The theory part of the course is broken up into 14 Modules. Internal exams are set for the following Subjects:
➢ Air Law
➢ Principles of Flight
➢ Aircraft Technical & General
➢ Human Performance
➢ Flight Planning & Navigation
Phase 2 – Restricted Radio License
In addition to the 14 Modules above you are required to obtain a Restricted Radio License. This is covered during the 7 days of theory training. After which you will be required to write an online CAA examination as well as pass a Practical test with an approved CAA examiner. We normally suggest at least a week of study time in order to prepare for the CAA online exam.
Phase 3 – Practical Training
Practical Training consists of 4 two-hour sessions. We cover some theory training within the two-hour session and include at least one hour of actual flight time during the session. On completion of the Phase 2, our Chief instructor will allocate the candidate to a Flight instructor and co-ordinate the bookings at a convenient time.
Phase 4 – Skills Test
Once you have completed Phase 3 our instructors will pass you onto our chief instructor who will conduct a “mock skills test” known as the Letter of Recommendation flight. This lesson is to ensure that each candidate is proficient in the practical flying manoeuvres as well as ensure that the theoretical knowledge is acceptable to be able to pass the final skills test. The Chief instructor will then issue the candidate with a letter of recommendation, and will pass this onto the Approved Designated Flight Examiner to conduct the final skills test.
The final Skills test consists of theoretical ground evaluation of approximately 1 – 1,5 hours followed by a 15-minute practical flight test.
Application to Civil Aviation Authority & Issue of RPL License
Drone-X will arrange the application to the Civil Aviation Authority and will supply each candidate with a list of required documentation for the application after registering for a course. Once your RPL License is issued we will arrange for collection or delivery of the license.
