Testimonials

I recently acquired an advanced drone and was not aware of the regulations that came into effect in Canada in 2019, while Transport Canada was highly recommending taking training at an established professional ground school. Therefore, I did my research and luckily found the Calgary Drone Academy. The owner advised they were creating online training, which was convenient during the social distancing scenarios we are living today. Once the course became available online, I acquired it at a very affordable price and proceeded to take it. It is complete, and the practice quizzes are excellent, the videos are easy to understand, and the practice exam is very close to the certification exam. I got my Pilot Certificate, with a passing grade of 85%, and with 24 minutes remaining on the examination. All of this thanks to Calgary Drone Academy. See you in two years, for recency training. Keep up the great work!
