Drone Games

Prairie Rose Public Schools, Super T Aviation, QinetiQ, and Medicine Hat College are excited to announce after many attempts, our first annual Drone Games taking place at Eagle Butte High School.

South Alberta Flight Academy students, who are hosting the event, acquire Drones/UAV Advanced Pilot Certification in accordance with Canadian Aviation Regulations and industry experts will be on hand throughout the course.

Participants will be flying drones less than 250g and therefore do not require Transport Canada registration or drone pilot certification.

Don't have a drone? No problem. We will have models on hand for those interested to check out.

The Events

The Drone Games consist of several course challenges that will be scored by industry experts and local dignitaries. Pilots will receive points for each challenge. Prizes will be awarded for each challenge and there will be an overall winner in each of 3 age classes:

  • Grades 9/10

  • Grades 11/12

  • Adult

Students in grades 9-12 from any school division are welcome to compete. There is also a competitive adult division. This event will be run in accordance with current COVID guidelines.

The Challenges include:

  1. Trajectory Drop

  2. Agility / Obstacle Challenge

All registrants will be competing in pre-generated groups. Scores will be tabulated on an individual basis.
