You want to prepare your self for the examination? No problem! Thanks to new publications of literature in combination with a sound understanding of aeronautical context and lots of experience in operating multi copters this could work! Despite we still think that a sound preparation and training , ideally bundled with practical instructions would make most sense, especially if your need is to operate high end UAVs equipped with expensive payload the next day! We’d like to keep bad experiences from you!

Examination is handled on behalf and under the registration of our cooperation partner, who is according to §21d LuftVO accredited as anerkannte Stelle at the Luftfahrtbundesamt.
