The development of aerial drones has been making huge strides in recent years. In addition to aerial photography, drones are being employed in various professional aspects such as surveying and mapping, inspection, search and rescue, security, and are bringing about earth-shaking changes to all industries. In the foreseeable future, the demand for professional drone pilots would definitely soar. As an integral part of the drone industry, it would be our target to train professional drone pilots to have first-class standards in flight skills, related knowledge, internalizing local regulations, and has the ability of project planning in Hong Kong. Only when the number of local pilots rises, the application of drones would bring along change and evolution to various industries by raising operation precision and safety.
Our certificate courses are the combination of instructors with years of practical experience, professional and suitable equipment, and learning materials designed by DJI. Since its establishment in 2013, OTG has trained more than 1,000 local pilots. In the combination of theoretical and practical lessons, students not only enjoy every minute of the course, but more importantly, they can comprehend and digest the operational skills and knowledge of drones in the process. Working hard in training every day, we humbly would like to work hand in hand with the local industries to achieve our ideals.
Our instructors are all experienced drone pilots. In addition to their rich experience in different flight missions, they also have obtained professional flight qualifications in different countries, and even instructor qualifications. These include: US FAA PART 107 drone license, Australian Civil Aviation Authority RePL drone license, UASTC (UTC) instructor qualification, etc. Because we understand that in addition to flight knowledge, teaching and guidance skills are equally important, that’s why we also treasure teaching experiences. The total flight hours of our instructors have reached 2000 hours.
Since our courses cover both basic and professional curriculums, thus we are making huge investment in teaching equipment. DJI Phantom4 series are used for basic courses, we also purchased DJI P4RTK surveying drone for Enterprise courses, and DJI Matrice 600 for inspection courses. Together with various safety equipment, we have invested HK $ 200,000 for our equipment. We hope that the students can learn with the most update drones on the market, thus keeping up with the latest trends.
We have a dedicated training room in our office, for lecture session of various courses.
We have a dedicated training base in Yuen Long, the 50K sqfeet base is suitable for training of various level and drone models.
As the HK branch of DJI Academy, we combine the official UTC curriculum designed by DJI, together with local Hong Kong law and regulations, to form a comprehensive set of courses. We currently offer “UAS Pilot Training Lv1”, and “Inspection” courses in Hong Kong.
We are the local partner of FPV Australia, and are providing the CASA “RePL” standard course in Hong Kong.
