CUI’s objective is to generate a safe and educated culture for both civil and commercial RPAS / Drone operators throughout Canada.

Sterling Cripps (Chief Instructor) identified a need for a Drone ground school back in 2008 to accommodate those operators without any formal aviation training.  His first course in 2009 was for first responders who were learning to operate the Dragan Flyer X6 VTOL UAV.  It was a an overwhelming success. 

This first course set the way to produce a purposeful UAS training Manual. Sterling together with Aviation Publishers (From the Ground Up) in Ottawa developed the first of its kind UAS / Drone / RPAS Training Manual. This training Manual, “Unmanned” was printed in Canada and has been the anchor reference for the Canadian Unmanned RPAS course content.

Canadian Unmanned is a recognized, compliant training company in accordance with TP 15263. The Canadian Unmanned ground school training course prepares students for the online Transport Canada exam, for both Basic and Advanced RPAS operators.
