The Canadian drone academy was hired by Havergal School in Toronto, Ontario to come to give a half day experience with drones to 24 girls. This first time experience allows students to get a general overview of how drones work and the history of drones and where the industry and technology is headed. We then give each student a hands of experience with the drones by letting them pilot one of our little tiny 25 gram drones. The students had a great first time experience and had fun doing it while learning about drones and STEM. We believe this is a winning combination and every student gave us positive feedback and the headmaster has invited us back to do more experiential learning days like so and are even interested in creating their own drone club!

Canadian Drone Academy was invited to the annual Priory school fundraiser "FORE" kids at the Metropolitan golf course in Montreal on may 18th 2017.
Canadian drone academy was invited by HumanitarianU to participate in their live training exercises over a period of 2 days with over 50 participants learning to utilize drones to help them do recon safely. We did 6 1 hour training with 7 students and have to show them the basics of setting up the drone and launching it safely to allow them to get critical live video of their surroundings. They then had to deploy the drone during a livr exersize to help them secure their food deployment to the locals during a disaster. This was an amazing experience and we hope to continue this great relationship with @humanitarianU

The Canadian Drone Academy had the pleasure to go over the new AMP Me offices to do some team building by teaching them how to build and fly some small micro FPV drones. We started the day with some basic Canadian rules & regulations to ensure that everyone has a good overview to operate a drone safely. We covered some basic theory around how drones work and their uses across many industries. We then sat down to do some hands on building of these micro drones with the team where we taught them the basic of soldering and how to build the drone. From there we got everyone up to do some basic flying 101 where everyone learned to use the controller to fly the drones in visual line of sight.
We will be going back the the AMP Me offices to follow up with them and teach them to fly FPV with our flying FPV 101 class. We will be even setting up a full micro drone racing track around their offices so they can enjoy racing around their drones whenever they need a brake from work.
We hope to get other startups involved with drone racing by offering the same team building course to eventually have a companies that would compete against each other under the FPV Canada drone racing league. If you're company is interested in doing team building with Canadian drone academy feel free to email us or call.
