What Our Students Have to Say

I was looking at getting my drone license and Airlink had a training course available.  The course was quite in depth.  Felt like I was back in pilot ground school.  The instructor was very patient and knowledgeable.  The amount of material covered in the 3 days, was amazing.  The support and exam prep material was excellent.  I would recommend them to anyone serious about getting into the drone pilot business.

The laws of flying drones requires a Transport Canada Certification. I began researching courses and I was lucky to find Airlink Consulting. Pat is an awesome instructor with a lifetime of information. I highly recommend.

This was a very comprehensive course that helped with understanding the rules and how to safely operate.

I highly recommend the course if you really want to understand how all the rules apply and how to operate a drone.

Having a fair bit Drone experience when I decided to get my RPAS Advanced certification, I figured it really couldn't be that difficult. I reached out to Pat at Airlink, as I heard he ran a solid online course.

Well I'm really glad I did! There's a great deal of information to go through and absorb - He keeps it real and personable, and with all the many years as an Airline Pilot, as well as his Drone experience he manages to navigate through all the material needed to get a handle on the key information required to successfully complete the Transport Canada certification, as well as the practical Flight Review.

Thank You Pat and Airlink!!
