Preparedness Training

FUTURE PROOFING BVLOS FLIGHT OPERATIONS

Presently, Transport Canada continues to approve SFOC applications for routine, low-risk BVLOS operations that are accompanied by high-quality SORA documentation. Our BVLOS Preparatory Training focuses on providing knowledge and strategies combined with industry best practices for procedures and processes and current regulatory information required to conduct safe and compliant BVLOS operations across Canada.

TRANSPORT CANADA BVLOS DEVELOPMENT

Volatus is a member of the Transport Canada BVLOS knowledge working group and works closely as a subject matter expert and advisory role in supporting the development of BVLOS Ground School standards to safely integrate BVLOS drone operations into Canadian airspace. Transport Canada has established various standing committees from industry to assist in developing the regulations for BVLOS training of pilots. Volatus proudly sits on two.

STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

BVLOS M3 On Ground

For BVLOS training you are required to hold the RPAS Advanced Pilot certificate. Additionally, we recommend you have a minimum of 100 hours of advanced RPAS piloting experience in various challenging conditions, hold a ROC-A license, and can demonstrate a good knowledge and understanding of flight planning, general aviation and crew management.

Three requirements for our BVLOS preparedness training:

HANDS-ON TRAINING ON MULTIPLE UAV PLATFORMS

Matt

We believe it is vital that BVLOS training be comprehensive and hands-on, allowing the student to experience operating both multi-rotor and fixed-wing aircraft while applying their knowledge to the safety and regulatory planning processes. Competent team management and communication are vital for BVLOS operations.

TRAINING DETAILS

Practical training provides in-field experience at pre-determined locations. Students will plan and conduct a complete BVLOS mission from start to finish while under the supervision of a skilled instructor (and with dual control systems and extended visual line of sight for maximum safety and risk mitigation). Our mobile field units contain all the necessary RPAS and safety/emergency equipment for BVLOS/EVLOS. In addition, the student can experience conducting simulated live BVLOS operations with a wide range of RPAS types.
