NP Flight School

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​About NP Flight School

Ngee Ann Polytechnic flight school is an accredited unmanned aircraft training organization (UATO) by Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). We demonstrated the ability to conduct safe, effective and learner centric programs for our workforce and hobbyists.


All courses are conducted in the safety and comfort at the Ngee Ann polytechnic campus. The campus provides amenities such as shower facilities, multiple canteens, rest area and classrooms for pilot trainees to use within walking distance. Parking is available at public rate. Getting to NP is a breeze with public transport at the door step of the campus.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Singapore is a tropical country with plenty of sunshine and rain. We believe that flight practice under shelter is safer and more productive for our trainees during hot sunny days. On wet and rainy days, trainees can complete their flight practice indoor in the event of rain and extreme wind conditions. Each trainee has their individual simulation set and use them for practice as often as they need during their training period.

Managing trainees’ fatigue level and anxiety are both important to a great training experience. Here at NP flight school, trainees have the best opportunity to learn at their own pace to operate the unmanned aircraft safely and find their potential in flight planning, management and operations.

Course Synopsis

To qualify for this assessment, the trainees must have passed CAAS theory test and has attained UAPL for multi-rotor Class A. UA pilot must show competence in accordance to CAAS’s passing requirement in operating class size 450 to 550 radio-controlled helicopters. Pilot can bring their own radio-controlled helicopters for the practical assessment.​

Candidates will be given time to practise and complete simulator training before the actual practical assessment. This helps candidates warm up and get used to the flight conditions at the test ground before the actual assessment. The practice sessions also improved safety and readiness for the candidates.

NP flight school will send trainee’s practical test results to CAAS electronically. Pilot can apply for the UAPL online by paying the license fee. The UAPL can be retrieved via CAAS’s app SGflight (android/iOS).

Passing the assessment allows the trainees to operate radio-controlled helicopters for commercial purposes and to apply as authorised flight examiners (AFE) at other UA flight schools required by CAAS.

Course Synopsis

Trainees will attend online lectures on aviation laws, safe UA operations, meteorology and principles of flight. Trainees will role play and work in teams to complete several real-world assignments. They will learn how to apply for activity permits and prepare flight plans for submission to CAAS. 

Trainees will learn to conduct site survey to plan risk management. Trainees will also sit for mock tests and complete an online assessment. Upon successfully passing the assessments, trainees will receive a certificate of achievement. 

Trainees will practise manoeuvres according to CAAS assessment criteria using simulators and field practice. Trainees will undergo field training using the same manoeuvres that will be completed during the simulator training. Trainees will practise flight patterns using three different UA with different weights and complexities – DJI Spark (light weight and easy to fly), Phantom 4 V2.0 (medium weight, more control required) and MIRS-S1200 (15kg heavy and technically hardest to fly and control). 

The 4 day course will help trainees operate a variety of light to heavy UA as part of their job or business. The focus will be on UA lighter than 7kg.
