Drone Remote Pilot theoretical knowledge training in Ireland for Standard Scenarios (STSs) in the Specific Category

Obtain EASA's drone remote pilot licence for Standard Scenarios (STS-01 & STS-02) in the Specific Category online. We designed this blended learning course for drone pilots who want to operate in controlled airspace or whose drone operations have a higher risk. By completing your UAS Remote Pilot training in our drone academy, you will be eligible to fly drones across all EASA member states in the Specific Category. The training course covers principles and requirements for Operational Declarations and Authorisations. We will review remote pilot requirements for operations under Standard Scenarios (STS-01 & STS-02) and published PDRAs. In addition, we will overview the operational risk assessments such as SORA.

Upcoming Live Webinar dates:

14th of August | 4th of September

During this course, we will cover these subjects:

Aviation Regulations; Human Performance Limitations; Operational Procedures; Technical and Operational Mitigations for Ground Risk; UAS General Knowledge; Meteorology; The Flight Performance of UAS; Technical and Operational Mitigations for Air Risk.

On the completion of this training, you will be able to:

Successfully apply technical and operational mitigations to reduce risks and conduct safe drone operations. Have a thorough understanding of the requirements and obligations of the Remote Pilot conducting drone operations under Standard Scenarios or PDRAs. Following this, all the paperwork is uploaded to the MySRS system. 

Blended learning experience:

You will receive access to our training platform, where you will complete and pass the theoretical knowledge exam in Open Subcategory A2 at your own pace. Then, you will be invited to a full-day live Zoom webinar where you will have the opportunity to meet our Chief Instructor - Captain Julie, who will take you through the specific requirements and procedures for drone pilots and operators operating in the Specific Category. Following the Live Webinar, you must pass the theoretical knowledge assessment in the Specific Category STS.

Please note: the theoretical knowledge assessments are conducted online via record and review or live proctoring systems. If a student fails to follow the instructions or does not reach a satisfactory grade, a retest will be required, and retest fees will apply.

The price includes:

A blended theoretical knowledge course of 24/7 online access to our learning platform and one-day live Zoom webinar; Course completion certificates for the issue of the “Remote Pilot Certificate of Competence” in Open Subcategory A2 and “Remote Pilot Certificate of Theoretical Knowledge for STSs” in the Specific Category.

Following the course:

Following the course, you may either work under a UAS operator's Operational Authorisation in the Specific Category (EASA) or register as an Operator and obtain your own Operational Authorisation. If you or your organisation does not have a valid Operational Authorisation and Operations Manual, we can assist in preparing all necessary documentation and endorsement to the national aviation authorities.
