The drone pilot study line offers students comprehensive training in flying a drone, up to the supervised A2 theory test. During the academic year, you will get to know aviation starting from the basics, as each student first completes the drone pilot’s open category qualification. The studies delve deeper than the surface into the basic knowledge of aviation and put a diverse focus on the special skills needed to fly a drone, both in theory and in practice. You will get the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude towards aviation, without forgetting your physical condition!
