Unmanned Theoretical Training
The course will run over 3 days and covers a variety of theoretical and practical subjects, whereby your instructor will guide you through the concepts of unmanned flying.
Part 101 covers the function and operations of the RPL holder, in Air Law we cover all parts of the Law, including navigation of the CAA website and a more practical approach as the holder of an RPL.
In this subject, we cover Radio Frequencies, Polarization, Radio Waves, Antennas and Line of Site operations. This is very important to an RPAS operation because as an operator one has to understand how to manipulate the radio signal and manipulate a receiver in order to get a strong signal link and operate in a safe manner.
Construction & Flight
In Construction of Flight, we cover the basic physics of flight. The syllabus covers all parts of the construction of the Multirotor and Aeroplane, we go in detail through all the components. We also look into the construction of a Multirotor and Aeroplane and discuss the manuals of each RPA.
RPAS operations require an understanding of different types of batteries and how to manage and conserve the life span of batteries.
We cover a large spectrum of different battery types and also incorporate a practical approach on batteries for use with all types of RC or Drone operations.
Airmanship & Field Ops Pack
This is in preparation for the DFE Test, we take the student through how to prepare for the actual DFE Test. We cover Airmanship in detail as well as we take an in-depth look into preparing the student for the DFE Test. We cover how the student will use this preparation work to do their flight operations going forward in an operational environment with safety being the core focus.
You do not need to own your own drone to attend the course. DO Training provides you with a registered aircraft to train on to allow you to log your flight hours.
