Acquiring, producing and using aerial imagery demands very specialized know-how and L’Avion Jaune is expert in passing this knowledge on. We offer theoretical and practical drone piloting courses, as well as courses in image processing, with experienced instructors.

L’Avion Jaune is a DIRECCTE-registered training entity. For our drone training courses, we have submitted a declaration of activity as an instruction provider to the French Civil Aviation Authority (DGAC) and this is activity is declared in our MAP (Special Activities Manual). We regularly act as instructors on academic training courses and in research bodies (IRSTEA, IRD, CNRS, etc).
