Drones in Canada
Drones are growing more and more popular each year. From small consumer units to large professional workhorses, it seems there is a drone for nearly everything nowadays. It’s no wonder that the government needs to put regulations in place to protect us, the general public, from potential risk.
At X4 Drones, we offer classes for every level of enthusiast. Whether you’re just starting out as a recreational pilot, looking to start your own UAV business, or want to expand your established aerial services, we’ve got something to offer you.
Along with specialty classes and private training options, X4 Drones provides an experienced, comfortable environment to pursue your passion.
Intro to Flight
This four hour class is perfect for those new to the fun world of flying drones. In a group setting you will learn all about the basics of drone safety & maintenance, as well as battery care and pilot etiquette. The best part, of course, is the flying! The last portion of this class is spent hands-on teaching you how to fly before you leave.
Participation in this class will require an approved micro-drone such as the Hubsan H107 series. Don’t worry! If you don’t have one already, you can purchase one from us on the day of the class.
This class is for those interested in flying a unit weighing over 500g and needing to learn about Canadian aerial regulations. Whether for recreation or to start your business, we’ll equip you with all the knowledge you need to fly legally and safely. This is a certificate class, though, so there will be a written test and flight simulator test. Should you pass both of those, there is a practical examination as well. Alumni of this class receive discounts on liability insurance with our partners, as well as discounts on X4 Drones professional services.
Participation in this class does not require you to own a UAV.
How to build a FPV racer, tips for professional videography, GIS & photogrammetry; these are just a few of the specialty sessions we’ve held at our offices. Typically held once per month, these classes are a more intimate and interactive session to really dig into a particular topic of interest for those attending. Think of it as an informal Q&A with the X4 Drones team, allowing you to pick our brains about anything drone related.
Do you have a topic you’d like to see? Let us know.
If you are unable to make it to one of our regularly scheduled classes, don’t worry! We do offer one-on-one private flight lessons where we can focus together on maximizing your time to get you flying safely and legally as quickly as possible.
