The fast-track course in presence to the STS theory certificate! You come prepared, go through in-depth training, ask any final questions and finish with the STS theory exam. Short, personal, results-orientated. The large EU drone licence (= EU remote pilot certificate A2) will be refreshed.
Airclip is officially recognised by the German Federal Aviation Office as an examination centre (DE.PStF.006) for the STS theory certificate as well as for the EU remote pilot certificate A2 (= large EU drone driving licence).
What do I have after the training?
You are the holder of the STS remote pilot certificate and have refreshed your large EU drone pilot licence (= remote pilot certificate A2). According to the law, both are valid throughout Europe for five years from the date of the examination.
What is the difference to the full training course?
You are only with us for one day instead of two and learn the content independently in advance. In addition, you already have the full drone licence in your pocket and supplement your knowledge primarily with all topics relating to the standard scenarios (STS ).
Scope of training
Preparatory online content:
You will receive access to our online learning programme for the major drone driving licence and STS theory, which you can complete at your own pace. This will give you a first impression of the following topics:
All the essentials of the new EU drone legislation
Operational limits on the use of drones
Relevant drone technology (distance sensors, positioning, etc.)
Simple troubleshooting and response to error messages
Methods for minimising risk during drone operations
Everything about the two standard scenarios STS-01 and STS-02
Training day in presence:
The classroom training day covers the theoretical content relevant to the exam in greater depth for the standard scenarios STS-01 and STS-02. You will learn in detail about risk assessment for drone operations and flight planning and flight preparation for practical self-declaration in accordance with AMC2 UAS.OPEN.030(2)(b) DVO will be discussed repeatedly for the large EU drone licence. You will learn practical methods for distance estimation and application of the 1:1 rule.
We will then continue with a short Q&A session. Please note: At this point, it's up to you. We will only deal with any final uncertainties before you take the exam. Please prepare for the exam at home!
The end of the day is the exam for the STS theory certificate including the large EU drone licence. The exam consists of 60 theory questions in multiple-choice format. The contents are the topics covered in the online learning programme.
Info: In order to be authorised to fly within the standard scenarios, an operational concept and an STS practical test are also required. If you are interested, you can learn and implement all the practical content at some locations on the following day and receive the necessary certificate after an examination.
Lunch, snacks and drinks are included.
On the training day, we also organise our individual flight training, in which you can gain your own practical experience under supervision. You are welcome to book it!
