InnovAero Academy is an upcoming educational course where you can learn about the rules and regulations of operating UAVs and become certified drone pilots in Brunei. Our aim is to ensure the safety and proper maintenance of the airspace in Brunei and to prevent any possible damage to the airspace and environment, which is a risk that comes with operating UAVs. By training and certifying drone pilots, we hope to open the door for new employment opportunities for the public, whether it be in the professional industry or hobbyist context.
The Academy consists of two main parts: theoretical and practical. Upon registering, students will be required to attend the theory class, after which they will then be required to practice flying using flight simulation software. Once this is completed, they will undergo a theoretical exam consisting of fifty questions. Students will only be allowed to advance to the practical training if they pass the theoretical exam. The practical training consists of supervised outdoor flight operations as well as route and maneuverability tests. Once completed, students are required to take the practical exam before officially ‘graduating’ and being certified UAV pilots.
