This course is designed specifically for RPL holders who are interested in aerial structure inspections. With the rise of drone technology in recent years this industry is fast growing and replaces the the need for teams of people to go out and inspect hard to reach areas.
Taught by experts in the agriculture industry this course introduces students to remote sensing technology in precision, crop science, crop economics, data collection including processing and delivery, understanding the farmers decision process, who and how to approach farmers with your services and working with independent crop consultants.
Feenix Drone Academy is a professional training academy that combines skill, passion and aviation experience to offer the best drone training for your needs.
Founded in April 2017 in response to the great demand for quality practical RPAS flight training especially from students who already completed their ground school. After speaking to fun fliers, career trainees and professional pilots FDA was established to meet their needs. By the end of 2017 FDA had developed the latest cutting edge training in SA. Training then began in January 2018. Feenix Drone Academy is based at the Cape Academy of Maths, Science and Technology. We are the only drone academy which offers our ground school and practical training at the same premises making us unique.
"Exceptional facilities and very detailed instruction. The practical training was fun and inspired confidence."
"I was on the introduction course and I think that this course needs to be included with every drone sold in SA."
"The flying was fun but I didn’t expect to learn about all the laws that must be followed. I definitely feel that I’m a safer hobbyist now."
