ABOUT US

“Drone flying is so fun! I want to share it with you.”

This is the idea that started Drone Flying Academy (DFA) Singapore. The flying experience should not be restricted to only a closed group of individuals, enthusiasts and professionals. We strongly believe that drone flying is for everyone; for the working adult who wants to dabble in a new hobby, or a young aspiring pilot who picks up a remote-control aircraft for the first time.

With the ever changing and increasingly challenging aviation scene in Singapore, it is DFA's obligation to teach the right thing and maintain a code of conduct within our community, while bringing positive flying experience to the mass. One of our core principle is to enforce safety while flying our unmanned aircraft, so that we can preserve the drone community's interests and allow everyone to continue sharing their flight experience with others.
