Details :

Part A – Practical Flying Techniques
This is the first part about the safe usage of the UAS and its mandatory safety rules according to the HK CAD, ICAO, airspace control, and aviation laws. Attendees can learn how to play a UAS by 6 fundamental flying steps. Then, the trainers will teach the attendees the flying in different directions during the flying experience.

Part B – Aerial work of photogrammetry (for land surveying & quantity surveying) and aerial recording (for general practice & building surveying)
Basic skills of aerial photography, recording, processing and editing techniques will be taught in this class.

Part C – Obstacle Challenge
The obstacle challenge will be in form of a group relay game. Each attendee will operate the UAS altogether in order to pass through all the simple obstacles for recognising all risks during flying in the airspace. This can also help to foster the team spirit and promote mutual co-operation in the community.

Part D – FPV Fun Flying Experience
Attendees will experience the unprecedented fun of “live first-personal-view” feelings from the virtual reality glasses as if one is simulated to sit in the cockpit of an aeroplane for high altitude flying.

Remark :


After attending this drone flying training course, a UAS flying safety handbook named “UAS VFR Operation Manual (For Recreational and Unscheduled Commercial Use)” will be distributed to each attendee.
