FIXED-WING DRONE COURSE
WITH PARROT DISCO FPV

Getting a fixed-wing drone rating will allow you to expand your services as an RPAS pilot. Unlike multirotor aircraft, fixed-wing drones, due to their specifications and flight capabilities, are used for thermography, surveillance and forest control, among others.

In this way, having the possibility of covering large areas of land and minimising to a great extent the operation times, it becomes possible to achieve specialised tasks, impossible to do with a multicopter.

Parrot Disco FPV

The Parrot Disco FPV, our smart fixed-wing drone, is capable of remaining in flight for up to 45 minutes, develops perfect glide and reaches speeds of up to 80 km/h. It is also designed for FPV/UAV and incorporates an advanced stabilisation system with anti-loss.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions
about drones and our courses

An RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) is a subgroup within UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles).

RPAS differ from UAVs in that at all times there must be a pilot taking responsibility for the flight. Which means that, although the drone is flying autonomously, the pilot is continuously monitoring it and can take control at any time. In addition, the rule indicates that a pilot may not fly more than one drone at a time.

Then any remotely piloted aircraft will be a drone. Therefore, we can find drones such as aircraft, helicopters, multicopters, hybrids, or other types that can be developed. Balloons and airships are excluded.

The current regulation allows for drones up to 150kg. For drones under 25kg it will only be necessary to have completed the specific RPAS knowledge course. For those weighing over 25kg, you will need to have a pilot license, or certified technical knowledge to acquire one. In addition, drones weighing more than 25kg must be registered and obtain an airworthiness certificate.

We invite you to read our post about the Spanish drone laws if you want to be aware of the current legislative situation. And if you are going to travel, you might also be interested in reading this other post about the Drone Law in the US.

In addition, you may also be interested in keeping an eye on the new European EASA Drone Regulations that is about to be implemented.

If you want to fly a drone with recreational purposes, you do not need any AESA drone licenses or permits. You won’t even need civil liability insurance. What you must do is comply with the regulations that determine in which areas you are allowed fly drones, which is different from the regulations governing their use for professional purposes.

At One Air, we offer drone training courses for professional purposes. Many students decide to take this course without necessarily wanting to pilot drones professionally, since they want to obtain comprehensive information and training in order to learn how to use drones safely and to their full potential. To fly drones for professional purposes, you will need to obtain a series of certifications.

The most suitable places to fly drones is in areas that have been specifically set up for this purpose, that is, at flying clubs. Drones can also be flown in other areas as long as you do not exceed 120 meters in height, do not approach airports or airfields, do not fly at night and do not fly over urban areas or crowds of people. There are no restrictions on drone flying within enclosed areas.

The use of drones in Spain is regulated by Royal Decree 1036/2017 of December 30. You can download the document at https://www.boe.es/boe/dias/2017/12/29/pdfs/BOE-A-2017-15721.pdf

In summary, it establishes the following requirements:

  • Have theoretical aviation knowledge applicable to the use of drones. Such knowledge can be accredited by specific courses for drones or by possession of flight licenses. Another way is the accreditation of theoretical knowledge of a flight license. Both formulas require training in an authorised aviation school (ATO).
  • LAPL or Class 2 medical certificate. Which are required for other aerial activities.
  • Certificate of theoretical and flight knowledge of a specific drone. Through a theoretical course on the drone and practical classes that certification is accredited, which is valid for flying that drone and any that have reasonable similarities (weight, speed, safety system).
  • Work for a drone operating company or be yourself as a freelance drone operator. Being a drone operator consists in preparing a documentation about the type of activity that will be carried out so that AESA has proof and gives its approval.
  • Liability insurance.

Currently, each country has its own regulations and do not allow cross-border activity. A common regulation is being developed at the European level so that the certifications obtained in one country are valid in the other member states of the European Union.

Currently, the restrictions are as follows:

  • No flying 120 meters above the ground.
  • No flying at night.
  • No flying over urban areas.
  • No flying over crowds of people.
  • No flying at less than 8km distance from an airport without having previously agreed upon it with the airport.
  • No flying in controlled airspace.
  • There are also local restrictions on flying or taking aerial photographs.

The certifications of technical knowledge and skills for specific drone models do not require renewing. The medical certificate must be renewed periodically depending on your age.

You have to be a drone operator, which you can be as a registered company or freelancer.

This will depend on the work you want to do. It is a market in full expansion and the supply of equipment with potential professional applications grows every day.

An important feature of any aircraft is reliability. This reliability is provided by the company’s experience and the number of drones of that model that have been sold. If many units have been delivered of a given model, this usually means that it does a good job of covering the needs of many people and that there will be a lot of feedback regarding issues that may have arisen in those models.

At One Air, we advise our students on the acquisition of their drones offering them all our expertise and keeping up to date with all the new developments in the market.

The company operating drones may be the owner or, alternatively, rent them. In either case, you must notify AESA of what specific drones you are using, each needing civil liability insurance for professional use.

Exceptionally and with proof of having taken adequate security measures, it is AESA can authorise specific flights that do not comply with some of the points of the regulation. Therefore, AESA will have the last word in these cases and there is no way to guarantee the viability of a job until the relevant consultation has been made.

At One Air, we provide advice on the channels to make these requests and how to submit them, as well as which local permits must also be requested.
