Update: Due to Covid-19 restrictions , specific requirements will be put in place to ensure the safety and health of all participants.
The Brampton Flight Center now offers Flight reviews for those who have passed the Transport Canada Advanced RPAS Exam. We are now booking for March. Once you have registered for your Flight Review we will get back to you with a date for your review.
The flight review is the one of two knowledge requirements for conducting advanced operations with your drone or “Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS)”.
What you need to know before you start
Before you conduct your flight review, you must pass the Small Advanced Exam.
We recommend reading Appendix A: Flight Reviewer’s Guide – sRPAS Exercises in the Knowledge Requirements for Pilots of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems 250 g up to and including 25 kg, Operating within Visual Line-of-Sight (VLOS). Appendix A lists the skills that your flight reviewer will ask you to demonstrate during your flight review.
Flight reviewers are Transport Canada-approved drone pilots who can administer a flight review.
Scheduling a flight review
Our reviewers are associated with the Brampton Flight Center and are fully qualified by Transport Canada to complete your flight review.
Contact The Brampton Flight Centre directly to schedule a flight review. You must provide us with the following on the day of your review:
- a digital or physical copy of the results page of your successfully completed small advanced exam
- a valid (not expired) piece of government-issued (federal/provincial/territorial/state government authority or the equivalent body abroad) identification that provides their name and date of birth
- the Certificate of Registration for the drone used for the flight review
About the flight review
The flight reviewer will assess your ability to operate your drone safely.
You may be charged a fee by the flight reviewer for your flight review. Prices are set by the reviewer.
After you complete the flight review
Within 24 hours of your flight review, the flight reviewer will submit your results online and you will receive an email confirmation with a link to view your results. You will need to keep your knowledge up to date. If you let your knowledge level lapse for more than 2 years, Transport Canada may invalidate your results.
If you pass the flight review, you can apply for a Pilot Certificate – Advanced Operations.
If you fail the flight review, you may schedule another review the next day. There is no limit to the number of times you can retake a flight review, but you may need to pay a fee each time.
