Flyability - Introductory Training
The introductory training is your way to get ready for the Beginner certification or, for those with a serious UAV piloting experience, the Advanced certification.
Elios is not alike any traditional drone and to help you maximize your return on investment, we offer, for free, an introductory training course to all our new customers upon the purchase of an Elios.
This piece of training is a primer to operate Elios in the safest conditions and in the most professional and efficient way. During the Introductory Training, you will learn all the basics of Elios, practice flying, and discover all of its features. You will get a brief introduction to the material we use to prepare a mission.
If you are interested in further exploring the possibilities of Elios and get a complete and thorough training, we encourage you to check our specialized training offering.
The introductory training consists in an intensive one day of theoretical and practical training split into four sessions.
- Theoretical training session: Safety and methodology related to the usage of Elios.
- Practical training session: Hands-on exercises to acquire the proper skills to collect data with Elios in the field.
- Practical exam session: Piloting skills assessment leading to the obtainment of the beginner or advanced certification depending on results.
- Basic exam sessions: Online assessment going over the knowledge you have acquired throughout the day.
Each participant attending the introductory training course will receive a certificate attesting to their certification level. All participants will be certified Beginner pilots and the most talented pilots can pretend to the Advanced certification when applicable.
Who Should Attend For our customers
The introductory training course is open to all Flyability customers, for free, upon the purchase of an Elios. Each acquisition grants access to a private training session with up to three participants. Attending the introductory training is highly recommended even for people used to UAV piloting.
The introductory training is also accessible to non-customer either by purchasing a private training session through Flyability or one of its Training Partners or by attending one of the paid training events that we organize all around the world. Attending the Introductory Training is a great opportunity to discover Elios in-depth before making a purchase.
