About us

Everyone is a drone pilot!

Drones are nothing less than fantastic tools, as DFA-founder Roel van der Wal learned when he was still working for the police. They can make our lives more pleasant and our work easier. In recent years, they have become more and more integrated in our society. 

Unpacking & flying? 

But those who think that you can just unpack drones and start flying them are often deceived. Users must comply with a lot of rules from Europe, especially regarding safety. 

Recognised training provider

As a recognised training provider, Drone Flight Academy wants to challenge people to learn to use that fantastic tool better. That is why we offer both online and classroom training courses throughout Europe. The ultimate goal is to teach people how to fly drones skillfully and safely. 


Our key values



The legislation for drones is quite complex, but we explain everything in simple terms. We also guide you through the entire training process.


No suprises

We say what we do and do what we say. With us, you always know where you stand.



Behind our online and classroom training courses are experienced people of flesh and blood. So feel free to contact us with your questions.

Meet Team DFA!

Our team consists of experienced instructors and staff who have more than 75 years of  experience flying manned and/or unmanned aircraft. We'd love to introduce them to you!
