This UAV course was packed full of information delivered by very knowledgeable and qualified instructors. I left this course
feeling confident with regard to the SFOC application process. I now see that I would not have been successful in filling
out SFOC applications without this course. Thank you Dave, Sarah, Brett and can't remember the name of the first instructor
but thank you too!
Very Interesting and valuable course if not initially somewhat intimidating. Suggest that doing the course in the summer may be better as it was a little chilly in the hanger for hands on flight training and would help with battery life. Will for sure be seriously investigating integrating into my Home Inspection business, may even reduce my insurance coverage if it can keep me off roofs
The UAV course was very comprehensive and informative. It is clear to me that WWFC really know the changing regulations and are in regular contact with Transport Canada. In fact, The regulations were updated 3 days before my course began and they had already integrated the new changes into the course by the time I started.
Even after the course has ended, the instructors give you their contact information to help you with any issues you may encounter when submitting for your own SFOC. Their responses are quite prompt, usually the following day. Fantastic experience!
I took the course so I can meet the future requirements that Transport Canada may be implementing. The instructors where all well versed in the information. I think the way they present the course is a bit underwhelming. Old style PowerPoints and matching books of the same info. It gets the information to us, it’s just very dry. The people are very friendly and do their best to answer questions. If they don’t know they will ask someone who does. The course I imagine is evolving as they run it more often. The price I think is good value for what you get. I have since then had 3 SFOC approvals and are working on my standing SFOC. I would recommend this course and have many times already.
I took the weekend course at WWFC to gain a more in depth understanding of UAVs, and I found this course to be very helpful. The course covered a number of important topics applicable to UAV operations. The instructors were knowledgeable and willing to share their experiences and advice to students. There was even a hands on component, as well as simulators which provide some live UAV experience. Prepare to receive a lot of info over the weekend, but the WWFC instructors advise they are available after the fact for support if needed. I recommend this course no matter what type of experience you have - this course will help make the SFOC application process much clearer.
Great way to introduce yourself to the world of Drones whether you have one or not. You will get real information on the regulations, best types to buy and build a community of fellow UAV pilots to exchange ideas questions and get accurate information in this ever changing industry.
Great material, great content. A must have for any uav operator.
