Course Information

The flight school works with industry leaders and companies to bring relevant workshops, seminar 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 area and classrooms for pilot trainees to use within walking distance. Parking is available at public rate. Getting to NP is a breeze with public transport at the door step 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 the 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.

Learning Outcomes

To attend this course, trainees must be UAPL holder. Alternatively, trainees must complete course 1 or course 2 and show competence in operating multi-rotors. Trainees will practise manoeuvres using simulators and field practice. Trainees will undergo field training using the same manoeuvres that will be completed during the simulator training. Trainees will practise flight patterns using class size 450 to 550 helicopters. Their rotor diameter is between 700mm to 1200mm and weights between 700g to 2.5kg.

Trainees will complete a practical handling assessment test and receive a certificate of achievement.

At the end of the course, trainees will be able to demonstrate safe handling the remote controlled helicopter according to CAAS practical assessment standards.
