Our two day Ground School training is for those wishing to sit only the theory part of the UAQ course with the option of sitting your Flight Assessment at a later date.
On signing up for the ground school course you will gain access to our online learning portal, which gives you access to:
- Welcome Pack
All the details you will need to arrive in the right place at the right time and be fully up to speed on what will be expected of you to complete the course.
- Course Study Manual (CSM)
All the theoretical knowledge you will need to pass the theory exam is in this document. It is a pre-course requirement that you have read this document and have a good working knowledge of the contents.
- UAQ Ground School Course
Here we have broken the sections of the Course Study Manual down into subject lessons so it is easier to digest. Where relevant there are supplementary videos to aid learning. At the end of each lesson, there is a quiz that has a selection of questions in the same style as those in the final exam for exam practice.
- Quick Reference Handbook
Contains some useful tools, tables and reference charts that will help you not only with the course but also into your piloting careers.
- Exam Reference Material
All the material you will need to reference to complete the exam is contained in this document. Please note, the exam is closed book aside from the reference material we provide.
The Course Study Manual contains all the information required to pass the theory exam section of the course, but during the ground school stage we will go over the important areas and ensure that you are fully prepared for both the Theoretical Exam and the Flight Planning Assessment.
The Ground School phase will be facilitated by two instructors, one with a primary background in manned aviation and one from a UAV operational background who is current and working in the industry at the highest levels. This combined experience is unique to UAVAir and ensures you receive the best instruction available to help you gain your UAQ and PfCO.
The emphasis during this stage is practical application through case studies and discussion. We will see how the theoretical knowledge is applied to the real world operations you will be carrying out on a daily basis.
Through a series of Flight Planning exercises, we will bring together all the theoretical elements and ensure that a good understanding of how they work ‘in the field’ has been achieved.
The ground school stage culminates at the end of day two with the Theory Exam and the Flight Planning Assessment. It is our objective to have a 100% pass rate of both these exams and we will do our part to help you achieve the required standard.
