DRONE VOLT offers a theoretical and practical training for the Heliplane VTOL drone.

This training is intended for clients or future clients wishing to implement a vertical take-off aircraft drone ``by DRONE VOLT``. The Heliplane training takes place over a 10 days.

At the end of this training, we will give you a training certificate.
