Dutch Drone Academy

Dutch Drone Academy (DDA) is one of the first drone schools in the Netherlands. Besides the training of hundreds of professionals per year, the company develops high quality learning tools for vocational secondary education (drone electives), colleague drone schools and customised learning environments for multinationals that want to develop services within Europe through the use of drones.

“DDA aims to support and facilitate companies in the Unmanned Valley ecosystem and specific end-users by developing learning resources, customised training courses and user instructions – digital or otherwise. In addition, DDA has numerous opportunities to provide test flights (ROC). DDA aims to make a significant contribution to further increasing safe and responsible drone use within European airspace through the integration of learning resources.”

DDA is one of the few drone companies in the Netherlands with an RTF (Registered Training Facility) status. In addition, the company is ROC certified (RPAS Operator Certificate) and therefore authorised to carry out professional operations with larger drones at home and abroad. From airframe inspection to concert registration, for clients such as KLM, BBC, RTL, SBS, Twitter and Red Bull.

More than 1,000 people have already registered through the DDA’s most recent initiative,, for the new European drone training courses which will become compulsory from 31 December 2020.
