Pilot training is divided in two separate and independent courses: Basic Course and CRO (Critical Operations).
The first one includes theory classes for a total of 16 hours and a minimum of 30 flying sorties (10 min. each) for a total of 5 hours practical training.
After a written exam (24 multiple choice questions) and a practice test the student will be awarded the title of Drone Pilot, issued by ENAC.
CRO habilitation is intended as an advanced training and requires a minimum of 6 hours experience as a drone pilot before attending it. The course for CRO operations includes theory classes for a total of 12 hours and 36 flying sorties (10 min. each) for a total of 6 hours practical training.
Tests (written and practical) will be carried out by ENAC examiners at Salento Droni.
Classes and categories may be upgraded by performing a skill test on the relative UAV after following a specific practical training. ENAC pilot license will include all Classes and Categories for which the pilot has successfully passed the exam.
