These drones (the Mavic Mini, Mini SE, Mini 2, Autel Nano) are exempt from drone pilot certification requirements, but there are a couple laws that you must abide! Check out our Micro Drone course for more info!
Basic Certificate250g+ Basic Operations
The Basic Certificate is meant for low-risk drone operations, such as away from people, away from aircraft, and outside of controlled airspace. You can use this for fun or to run a business, but you will be limited if you need to fly near cities.
Advanced Pilot Certificate250g+ Advanced Operations
The Advanced Certificate is required in order to fly a 250g+ drone in higher risk advanced operations, such as near people, near airports, and in controlled airspace. It's a two-step process, involving an online exam, and an in-person review.
Ground school and exam prep for Basic Category Transport Canada drone pilot license certification. Learn the fundamentals and see some TC-style questions before writing the real exam!

What do I need to do to fly legally?
You'll need to write an online exam and if your operations are considered "Advanced", do an in-person flight review. If it has been a while since you took ground school, or if you're new to flying drones, you may want to check out our refresher and prep courses.
What training is required?
While you can take the test without completing any training in advance, Transport Canada anticipates pilots will need to take a compliant ground school to prepare for the online exam for basic and advanced category operations. If you conduct your flight review with us, we have an online prep course so you know what to expect!
Do I need an Advanced to fly for profit?
No! If your operations are away from airports, people, and controlled airspace, you can fly commercially with just a Basic RPAS certificate. We usually recommend pilots consider the Advanced though, so they never have to decline a job based on certification.
Do you offer group rates for training?
We do! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your group discount.

Great introduction on what to look forward to, if you plan on flying your drone for more than just a selfie. It gets a bit dry listening and reading about CARs however they are ultimately there, because someone did it, and the need for future avoidance. The breakdown of regulations, transcribed in plain English is great. Downloaded documents are a definite plus to refer back to. Excellent thus far, great job Coastal Drone!Read Less
