UAPL Training

Unmanned Aircraft Pilot Licence (UAPL) Training Programme

Singapore Flying College is a CAAS accredited Unmanned Aircraft Training Organization (UATO). 

Our UAPL training programmes are designed to ensure that learners develop strong theoretical knowledge foundations that are supplemented by learning practical skills with the simulator and actual practical flying.

The training ensures that the applicant achieves the necessary level of competencies in relation to Safe and Efficient UA Operation. Following the completion of the CAAS-mandated flight test, the applicant will be qualified as a UAV Pilot.
