RPAS (Drone) Certification Training and Flight Review
Drones, or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), are revolutionizing the way we work. From construction projects to emergency response activities – drones are an essential tool for image capture and data collection. Under new federal requirements, individuals will require certification as an RPAS Pilot.
In partnership with Flytbox Aerial Solutions, Mohawk College is proud to offer training that will prepare students for the Transport Canada exams and obtain their RPAS Pilot Certificate.
