Ground School (2 days)
The course starts with two days of ground school. The Course Study Manual contains all the information required to pass the 107 exam, but during the ground school stage we will go over the important areas and ensure that you are fully prepared for both our internal Theoretical Exam and the Flight Planning Assessment.
The ground school phase will be facilitated by two instructors, one with a primary background in manned aviation and one from a UAV operational background who is current and working in the industry at the highest levels. This combined experience is unique to Consortiq and ensures you receive the best instruction available to help you gain your UAQ and Remote Pilot Certificate.
The emphasis during this stage is practical application through case studies and discussion. We will see how the theoretical knowledge is applied to the real-world operations you will be carrying out on a daily basis.
Through a series of Flight Planning exercises, we will bring together all the theoretical elements and ensure that a good understanding of how they work ‘in the field’ has been achieved.
The ground school stage culminates at the end of day two with our Theory Exam and the Flight Planning Assessment. It is our objective to have a 100 % pass rate of both these exams and we will do our part to help you achieve the required standard.
