1.  CDP-C™ Certified Drone Pilot – Commercial (“Course”) Online Application

By submitting your application to enroll on CDP-C™ Certified Drone Pilot – Commercial course, certification issued by The UAV Academy LTD, you understand that on issuing it is a certification of recognition that you have passed an exam after attending a two-day theory course in unmanned aerial vehicle (“UAV”) use; completed an Operations Manual for UAVs and have demonstrated a high skill competency in flying UAVs. Further, you understand this certification will not grant you a ‘pilot’s licence’, nor will it automatically grant you a permission to fly a UAV commercially in Hong Kong or worldwide. You further understand that the certification is solely designed to demonstrate your competency as a UAV pilot, to enable yourself or your organisation (Accountable Manager or pilot) to support any application for permission for commercial work to a national aviation authority, according to the rules of that country, if you so wish.

Scottcopters Limited is not responsible for the status or otherwise existence of the CDP-C™ certification and as the applicant, you undertake to make your own due diligence enquiries as to the benefits of this certification to your personal needs and requirements.

1.1 ​Where the CDP-C™ course includes a discounted half-day or 2 days of group flight training and aircraft rental package,  provided by Scottcopters Limited, flight training is to be taken within 3 months of the Part 2 theory course, at a date to be arranged.

1.2 For courses booked up to and including 24-25 March 2018: Part 4 Flight Operations Assessment (FOA) is to be taken within 12 months of 1st attempt at CDP-C™ Part 2 exam and after having had Operations Manual (OM) approved.

1.3 For coursed booked after 24-25 March 2018: Part 4 Flight Operations Assessment (FOA) is to be taken within 6 months of 1st attempt at CDP-C™ Part 2 exam and after having had Operations Manual (OM) approved.

1.4 Where 'equipment crash insurance' is included in a course fee, when students rent Scottcopters equipment for flight training or FOA, note that this ONLY applies to UAVs/equipment belonging to Scottcopters. If a student wishes to use his/her own UAVs/equipment, even though rental of Scottcopters UAVs/equipment may be included in the fee, insurance does not cover the student's own UAVs/equipment.

1.5  Should inclement weather prevail near the arranged flight training session dates, Scottcopters will have absolute and sole discretion as to whether those sessions take place as arranged, and will assess the weather and other environmental conditions, which may preclude safe flight operations.


2.1 When students undertake flight training or any supervised flying / Flight Operations Assessment with Scottcopters, they will be required to sign our standard Student Waiver agreement prior to flying.

2.2 Scottcopters highly recommends that all pilots of their organization have their own third party liability insurance covering the requirements of the relevant legislation.
