Course Information

The flight school works with industry leaders and companies to bring relevant workshops, seminars and training for individuals in management and operational roles to enhance their understanding in unmanned aircraft flight planning, crew management, operations and risk assessment.

All courses are conducted in the safety and comfort at the Ngee Ann Polytechnic campus. The campus provides amenities such as shower facilities, multiple canteens, rest areas and classrooms for pilot trainees to use within walking distance. Parking is available at a public rate. Getting to NP is a breeze with public transport at the doorstep of the campus.

Singapore is a tropical country with plenty of sunshine and rain. We believe that flight practice under shelter is safer and more productive for our trainees during hot sunny days. On wet and rainy days, trainees can complete their flight practice indoor in the event of rain and extreme wind conditions. Each trainee has their individual simulation set and use them for practice as often as they need during their training period.

Managing trainees’ fatigue level and anxiety are both important to a great training experience. Here at NP flight school, trainees have the best opportunity to learn at their own pace to operate unmanned aircraft safely and find their potential in flight planning, management and operations.

Get your unmanned aircraft pilot license (UAPL) safer and faster with NP flight school.

NP07: Unmanned Aircraft Pilot License (UAPL) Practice and Assessment of Proficiency on the Operation of Class A Rotorcraft (Radio-controlled Helicopter)

Learning Outcomes

The trainee will access the course online at their own pace to complete the learning objectives within 30 days. They will learn to plan, manage and conduct UA activities. Trainees will learn how to comply with CAAS Air Navigation Act (ANA), Air Navigation Requirements (ANR)-101 and other associated advisory circulars for safe and responsible UA operations. They will understand basic aeronautical and technical knowledge of UA including the functionality of various UA components and systems for operation planning and risk management. They will be able to direct the operation of UA safely by adopting the required safety procedures and understanding how human performance can affect safe operations of UA.

Trainees will complete one online mock theory test and one online assessment test to complete the course. Trainees will receive a certificate of achievement on passing the online assessment test.

Trainees can attempt the CAAS administered theory test (for the purpose of attaining the UA pilot Licence) after completing the course (optional).

At the end of the course, trainee will understand the legal compliance and to learn how to conduct UA operations in Singapore safely and will prepare those who wish to attempt the CAAS administered theory test (for the purpose of attaining the UA pilot Licence).
