I approached Drone Académie & Simon.M for Flight review exam. I am very pleased with the experience working with Drone Académie, and glad to get my advanced certificate! Right from the Get-go, engagement was professional, responsive, and informative. Simon was patient to answer my queries and share critical guidance. The package for flight review included a complementary ‘preparation for flight review’ course. Simon was kind to guide me to enroll in the complementary courses with discount voucher that was part of the flight review package. The content of complementary prep course has deep dive videos and lots of theory which I found is extremely well structured and designed. The package is also competitively priced for the content and education delivered. It includes best practices and Do’s and Don’ts to remain compliant with Transport Canada to ensure safe flight. Links to important resources, Templates for flight log and other items are also provided. The best part of the course was the “flight plan preparation strategy” that Simon & team has designed, it is the best in class approach I have seen, he explains necessary tools and techniques to use step by step to get to the result. The flight review exam scheduling process, rescheduling due to weather changes process was excellent. The exam itself was comprehensive and detailed. I would highly recommend drone pilot aspirants to Drone Académie , and Simon. M as fight reviewer! Thank you & All the best!
