The new EU drone regulation is in force in the EU member states since December 31, 2020. The new regulation also introduced new EU drone driving licenses, which are mandatory for the operation of most drones. With the A2 EU remote pilot’s certificate, for example, drones with a take-off mass of up to 4 kg can be flown in slow flight mode with a maximum of 10 km / h up to 5 m to uninvolved people in the open category in urban areas. Target group: career changers, beginners, interested drone buyers, drone owners, advanced users with initial flight experience
Training content for obtaining the A2 EU remote pilot’s certificate and the preparation process
In three webinars with live chat support, we will prepare you step by step for the theory test. The modules take place independently of each other. Due to the high demand, we offer all modules 4 times a week. In this way, all open questions can be clarified in a small group. This means that you can either visit all 3 modules in one day or flexibly spread them over several days. The content is the same in each case, so you have all the freedom to learn the material in parallel to your everyday work. In addition, you will receive the training documents as a PDF by email before each module and after each module you will have the opportunity to view the recording for 99 days until you have passed your exam.
