TRAIN

Every drone pilot needs to undergo an initial training course that will cover drone fundamentals, drone-flying rules and regulations as prescribed by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP)

FLY

After learning the fundamentals, the next step is to do a one-on-one flight demonstration. Since Boracay Island is located near Caticlan Airport, demonstration flight will be limited to either an indoor court or an area that is beyond the 10 km radius from the nearest Aerodome Reference Point (ARP). Practice flying in the populated White Beach is strictly disallowed by CAAP and the Malay Local Government Unit.

CREATE

With Certified Film Maker/s and video creators as coaches, trainees can take basic courses on drone videography.

Note that drone-flying will only be allowed in designated areas outside the 10km radius from the nearest airport.


Boracay Island’s most famous White Beach is located within the 10 km radius from the nearest Aerodome Reference Point (ARP).
As a Drone Academy, we strictly abide by what is prescribed by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). Hence, we only conduct our one-on-one demo flights either indoors or outside this 10km radius and do not let our trainees fly higher than the tallest structure in the area.
On top of that, we also ensure that trainees secure first their corresponding drone permits from the LGU before demo-flights.
Train, Fly and Create with Boracay Island Drone Academy. Have a safe flight!
