About Canadian Centre for Unmanned Vehicle Systems

CCUVS is the only organization of its type in Canada that offers a 1.5 day condensed UAS ground school course to both civil and commercial operators. CCUVS’ 7 years of UAS field experience and aviation background in this emerging technology sector are the key ingredients of this UAS course. It covers the following topics that are all deemed essential by Transport Canada:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Air law and regulations
  • Communications
  • Weather and basic UAS 101

Students also receive instruction for an Industry Canada Restricted Radio Operators License (Air). Upon the successful completion of the radio exam, students will then receive a radio license which allows them to operate and monitor aviation frequencies. CCUVS has successfully trained over 100 students over the past 5 years and offers this course both in house and on location as required. It is recognized by Transport Canada and seen as most beneficial when indicated on a SFOC application.

The UAS training manual “Unmanned” is a required purchase in order to complete the course. This text book is published by Aviation Publishers and co-written by CCUVS.  It includes the necessary information on course topics and serves as an excellent field guide and reference manual when operating UAS. No operator should be working without it.
