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

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.

2.3 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.

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. Should Scottcopters decide to postpone the flight training session, there will be no penalty fee for postponement and arrangements will be made for a suitable alternative date.

3.2 Flight Operations Assessment (FOA): You will be charged an admin fee of HK$1000 if you postpone a confirmed Flight Operations Assessment (FOA) within 3 working days of the agreed original date.

You must follow and are bound by the rules of the FOA joining instructions issued to you with regard to postponement due to bad weather or other exigencies. If your FOA has been paid for as part of a Course Package, the value of an FOA for calculation of costs will be determined as HK$3000.

3.3. If, due to force majeure or other reasons beyond Scottcopters’ reasonable control (Including where the instructor is ill), the Course/Flight Training/FOA cannot be performed at the agreed date, or could only be performed with unreasonable economic effort, then the Course will be performed on the next possible date agreed.

3.4 Confirmation of enrollment will be taken as the date when you are emailed said confirmation from Scottcopters.

4.3  If you cancel your purchase you must return any Study Materials you may have received from Scottcopters without due delay and not later than 14 calendar days after you inform Scottcopters of the cancellation. You will be liable for the cost of returning any goods to Scottcopters unless Scottcopters has agreed otherwise in writing.

i. In relation to delivery costs, the refund amount will be capped at the cost of a standard postal method fee; and

ii. If the value of the goods has been diminished by your handling, Scottcopters may recover the amount of this diminished value by deducting this amount from your refund.

iii. If you cancel a Course after any components of that course have been mailed to you, Scottcopters will deduct from any refund of your Fee the cost of all applicable delivery charges, including delivery costs.

iv. Refunds will be made using the same method of payment as you used for the purchase and will be paid within 14 days of you informing Scottcopters of the cancellation. The period for refund will increase to 30 days if Scottcopters is unable to credit a Hong Kong bank account. If you have chosen to invoice your employer and at the time of cancellation the relevant invoice has not yet been paid then such invoice will be cancelled/adjusted taking into account the terms of clause 4.5 viii below. If you have chosen to invoice your employer and at the time of cancellation the relevant invoice has already been paid by your employer, the Fees will be credited to your employer’s bank account within 14 days of cancellation (provided a Hong Kong account can be credited). For monetary returns, a request in writing to Scottcopters is required from your employer.

vi.

vii. Where you have purchased multiple Course components (e.g. Remote/Online Learning, Ground School, Flight Operations Assessment, Flight Training) as part of a package of products and you cancel one or more of those elements, each component which you cancel will be treated separately and the relevant cancellation terms and administration costs will apply to each cancellation. The value of each of the components will be determined by the then current fee which would apply if you purchased the individual component.

viii. Subject to these Terms, you may cancel the Course by giving written notice to Scottcopters using the email address katy.scott@scottcopters.com and Scottcopters reserves the right to charge you a cancellation fee. Scottcopters’ policy for such cancellations is set out below:
