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).


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 Aerodrome Reference Point (ARP). Practice flying in the populated White Beach is strictly disallowed by CAAP and the Malay Local Government Unit.


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

What to expect?

• Learn about drone fundamentals and drone-flying rules and regulations and basic drone videography from CAAP Licensed Drone Pilot/s and Certified Film Maker/s
