WORLD IS CHANGING
Transport Canada Certified Flight Instructors
Our instructors have been active in the Vancouver film industry for over 15 years. After many years filming aerial shots hanging out of manned helicopters, 2014 was a turning point when we were first introduced to collective pitch remote helicopters. This started our journey into remote piloted aerial systems, racing drones, and film applications of RPAS. After the successful creation of an FAA Part 107 training program in 2017, the 11 Alpha training business was a runaway success with over 1000 US drone pilots signing up for the program in under 2 months. 11 Alpha works with several Transport Canada Approved Flight Reviewers based in Vancouver British Columbia Canada.
Advanced Aerial Platform Training and Ground School
Commercially operated Remotely Piloted Aerial Systems (RPAS) operated within visual line-of-site between 250 grams and 25kg requires a certified pilot, registered drone and possibly a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC). Pilots looking to operate near people or property the "Advanced" pilot certificate must be acquired, in some cases a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) may also be required.
