About us

Mission & Vision

Candian Drone Academy was founded on the principles of sharing the fun of learning through the experience of piloting a drone & the gift of flying with everyone in the world.

What we do

We offer a variety of services all based around our Microdrone platform that is tiny & safe yet super powerful & nimble and capable of flying indoors or outdoors around people while doing all sorts of cool tricks.

The academy helps schools create “ drone clubs” by giving them the easiest path to becoming Transport Canada compliant and create a dedicated safe drone flying places for students. We have designed & built a drone building & flying curriculum for grade school, high school & university and we provide standardized drone equipment for standardization in learning.

We create an intramural drone racing league that we pair with an E-sports league allowing schools across Canada to compete against each other virtually online or by racing on our official standardized tracks that students can set up easily, race the drones they have built and set their fastest times to compete against other pilots in different schools. This help engages students by having fun and growing the love of learning through a hobby & new age sport.

Our goal is simply to bring as much fun & joy as possible through incredible experiences we curate with drones.

What kind of drones do we use to teach?
We have spent a lot of time testing all sorts of tiny drones over the years. We have selected a drone that is very robust & safe with a frame that protects the propellers safe. The drone weighs less than 30grams in around 2-3 inches in size. These drones fall under the less than 250g Transport Canada category & its considered an RC toy.
