I was so thrilled the day I passed my Drone Pilot Certification Exam for Canada. But it was certainly not easy! You are tested on basic pilot knowledge and that's not something I had ever learnt about before.


That's what made me decide I would create this article... Subscribe and follow my account to be notified of my launch of the ADVANCED CINEMATICS COURSE in 2023

I also created an easy-to-use Drone Course to help you become a Licensed Canadian Drone Pilot!





What is it exactly....?

It's an online exam for both Basic and Advanced Pilot certification that allows you to have open reference material.


  • There's a time limit

  • Wait 24 hours before you can write again

  • $10 fee

  • You write the test online in your own home or etc.. (unsupervised)


Some things you should know are that you'll receive immediate results! You will also be notified which sections you got wrong and need to review.


There are 4 principal documents to reference as your study guide during the exam.


1. New Canadian drone ("RPA") regulations:


2. Knowledge Requirements for drone pilots:


3. Aeronautical Information Manual (AIM):


4. Canadian Aviation Regulations (CAR):


The Transport Canada Drone Safety site contains more useful information: https://www.tc.gc.ca/en/services/avia...



Some of the fundamental rules are as follows:


  • Small Drones are 250g to 25 kilos

  • For Drones under 250g, the license requirement doesn't apply

  • The Drone must be registered and have the number clearly marked

  • You must be min 14 years old for the Basic License

  • With the Advanced License, you must only fly certified Drones (weird....)

  • No drugs or alcohol within 12 hours

  • Advanced License requires an in-flight review and renewals

  • FPV is permitted

  • Night flying permitted, spotlight required

  • Must maintain VLOS (Learn these terms)

  • Flying at Events and Parks is not allowed



You will be tested in the following subjects:


  • AIR LAW, AIR TRAFFIC RULES AND PROCEDURES

  • RPAS AIRFRAMES, POWER PLANTS, PROPULSION AND SYSTEMS

  • HUMAN FACTORS

  • METEOROLOGY

  • NAVIGATION

  • FLIGHT OPERATIONS

  • THEORY OF FLIGHT

  • RADIOTELEPHONY
