Drone Basics & Flight
Want to feel confident and competent in flying a drone, come and learn about the technology and basics of flight with us.
A drone is an aircraft. Understanding the basics of your drone, its limitations and basic flight modes, your flying environment and the regulations associated with drone flight is important to safe and responsible drone usage.
We run 2 hour field training sessions for new drone users. Our familiarisation sessions are run in Perth, but we can also provide regional and remote sessions over the phone. Training is either in small groups or private sessions.
Our training is run by drone pilots, Leanne and Will, Leanne is also has a fixed wing commerical pilot licence (the people carrying type). We love aviation and drone technology and want to see you having a great drone experience too!Drone Field Training
- Drone technology, you learn the basics of this advanced technology so that you understand how the drone works and feel more confident operating your drone.
- Regulations, drones are essentially remotely piloted (un-manned) aircraft and there are strict regulations associated with where, when and how to fly.
- Operating your drone, we bring the learning back to your drone, overview procedures pre and post flight and guidance with developing manual flying skills.
- Practical flying exercises in the field to equip new donre users with the basics of manual flight. This session involves all aspects from pre flight, start up, flying exercises and post flight. Whilst DJI and Yuneec drones have the technology to fly themselves, your capability in manual flight will equip you to avoid collisions and potential loss of your aircraft.
Aerial Photography Skills
We run a two part photography session covering all of these aspects and more. Our trainer is qualified in photography, uses professional drone platforms in both photography and videography and will equip you with the basics from mission planning, camera settings, image capture strategies and suitable post processing programs to use.
Part 1 covers basics of flying drones for image capture, third party Apps, image capture strategies and "rules" to get sensational shots, camera settings for different applications, use of filters, all to get you up to speed with how to approach aerial imaging.
Part 2 includes more complex mission platforms to assist in great photography and post processing to get the most out of your images.
We leave you with a hard copy hand book of the sessions to refer to in the future.
If you are seeking certified training for either a remotely piloted aircraft licence (RePL) or a commercial operating certificate, we can also provide guidance to assist you. There is also plenty of information on the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) website here on flying drones in Australia.
