Global Flights every 24 hours.

There are 100,000 flights globally every day, and remarkably, very few accidents. The safety of our airways is entirely due to the Quality and Safety Management Systems (QSMS).

Safety management systems (SMS) help companies identify safety risks before they become bigger problems. Transport Canada regulations require the aviation industry to put safety management systems in place as an extra layer of protection to help save lives. Transport Canada SMS Aviation

SMS is the global standard.

As we move into the full adoption of drones into our global airways, understanding and having the organizational ability to implement a QSMS will be necessary for most professional drone operations. We can help.


The drone industry is evolving rapidly, especially when it comes to drone services and professional drone piloting. The global drone industry is currently a US$ 15 billion economy and has the potential to more than double in the next five years.* Currently, our industry is packed with small operators offering little to no differentiation. This is an issue as most emerging technologies have discovered that a lack of differentiation is unsustainable, we will see prices falling, margins compressing, and a consolidation especially as drones are adopted into the global airways.

For the drone industry to grow, pilots need to be able to step relatively quickly into a wide range of highly technical industries, deliver high-quality results, and be prepared to support, manage, and grow that industry’s drone program. Likewise, businesses need to be able to know that they are hiring that calibre of professionals. Volatus provides the skills, knowledge, operational regulations, and compliance training organizations need to confidently build drone programs.

The most important step for pilots and organizations is to future-proof your knowledge and skills. Be prepared, through training, for the challenges ahead, predict and navigate the roadblocks to your success in the fast-developing drone industry.

Volatus personnel come from a diverse background that includes airline passenger pilots, aviation lawyers and international business development executives, aviation mechanical engineers, helicopter pilots, teachers, veteran service members, and experts in remote and autonomous operations training and support. Together we have created training programs, off-the-shelf courses that are listed here, and customized solutions for industry, government, public safety, and other organizations.

Establishing a robust Quality and Safety Management System (QSMS), understanding the steps required for a successful SORA (Specific Operations Risk Assessment), and once an SFOC is obtained, how to remain compliant are just a few of the steps needed to be BVLOS prepared. The penalties for flying a drone without following regulations range from losing your pilot’s license, to $25,000 fines.

Our team is here to customize an organization-wide BVLOS program or join our Spring BVLOS training.


This program aims to build an expert RPAS workforce that can find well-paying jobs in the Canadian RPAS service industry. We expect our successful students to be employed in the industry within six months of qualifying. We will promote the diploma nationally and successful students will be recognized as holding a valuable industry qualification.

This diploma is registered for delivery at the Volatus RPAS Training Academy and approved by the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning, making it eligible for Government funding support.

STEM is vitally important for our youth.

And it’s never been more fun!

Our youth drone camps are offered nationwide and are created to meet STEM curriculum objectives. Matthew Johnson is the leader of this program and was a high school maths teacher before dedicating all his time to the drone industry and training programs. Ask us for references from school districts, Indigenous Youth associations, and others who have enrolled their youth in this ground-breaking STEM program.
