Drone Pilot Licence Ground School Malawi
It is required by law that you receive formal training and obtain a licence to commercially operate a drone in Malawi. We developed this Drone Pilot Online Ground School to bring the classroom to the student so that s-he can study the theoretical component of the DPL licence at home and on the go. This online ground school complements our taught ground school and can be taken in combination or in isolation. All students who subscribe to the online ground school have free access to the taught ground school as well. Having a DPL enables the holder to remotely pilot an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) which s-he was licenced on. Other makes and models of UAVs require additional training and a type rating endorsed by the Malawi Civil Aviation Authority. This is a standard requirement worldwide.
WHAT’S IN THE ONLINE GROUND SCHOOL?
We have actual and animated footage as well as text and other interactive content. This rich learning experience is implemented at top aviation institutions worldwide. We have gleaned best practices to bring an international experience to our students in a local Malawian environment. We are excited to have you on board!
We recommend that you hold a full Malawi School Certificate of Education or higher qualification if you are aiming to eventually pursue flying as a career. Equivalent qualifications are also accepted. You must also have a good command of spoken and written English. Mature entry students may join without these qualifications but must demonstrate competence in English by passing the prescribed English proficiency exams.
You may choose to concurrently pursue your ground school and flying training. We have a separate online flying school which contains for the most part actual and animated video footage that helps the student to prepare for the air exercises. Please note that this course excludes flying lessons which must be booked and paid for separately. Our students have free access to our Flight Booking site which enables them to view their allocated schedule, the aircraft they will fly in, and their instructor. The student can also link the booking portal to their Google Calendar and the system will automatically send schedule reminders. You can learn more about our Flight Booking portal in this blog post.
GROUND SCHOOL EXAMS
Our students have FREE access to our TestPrep site which contains mock exams drawn from over 20 question banks with thousands of questions and answers. Students can also download our FREE Android app from the Google Play Store. Official exams (knowledge tests) are administered by the Malawi Civil Aviation Authority — the Directorate of Civil Aviation.
