A great online course with concise information through video format. Kate is a well spoken expert in drone operations and all the regulations that goes along with flying! Thank you for an amazing learning experience.

Informative and direct. It's about time Canadian UAV operators had access to a good online training tool. Looking forward to the updates.

In 2018, Transport Canada will make it mandatory for all drone pilots to have knowledge training. We made it easy for everyone with our Drone Fundamentals course, covering all the essential theory and practical knowledge needed to be legal and safe. 

This course is perfect for:

  • new drone pilots
  • pilots of 250g to 1kg recreational and business drones
  • model aircraft pilots
  • racing drone pilots
  • crew members associated with commercial drone operations


By signing up for Drone Fundamentals, you can take the course now and get additional content on new regulations once they come into effect. You’ll be automatically notified when the content is added and once you’ve completed the final course section on the new rules, you’ll receive a certificate of completion.

This course complies with the newest revision of TP15263 Knowledge Requirements for Pilots of Unmanned Air Vehicle Systems (UAV) 25kg or Less, Operating within Visual Line of Sight.

About the instructor

Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Kate got her start in the aviation industry in 2007 when she began flight training as part of a program at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton. There she achieved her commercial pilot’s license and a bachelor of business administration. Upon graduating, she moved to BC “for 6 months” to complete further training to become a flight instructor. 6 years later, Kate is still living in the Lower Mainland, teaching people to fly both manned and unmanned aircraft.

With a few years of unmanned experience and having taught over 500 drone pilots already, Kate is excited to share the knowledge she's gained with you!

Kate’s passion for teaching comes naturally as the daughter of a University professor and dean. Her own thirst for knowledge fuels this drive because she believes that if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.
