Drone Pilot - sport

Droning is a relatively young and fast growing sport in Norway. To fly a drone is more than simply controlling an unmanned craft. Learn technique, balance, mentality and strategy for becoming a master when it comes to drones. Drones can be used in a wide variety of areas. Here you will experience the crucial tasks drones can solve for our society. It's a lot of fun to master drones from A to Z. This is what you can do here with us!

Our own airport

We have the best training conditions when it comes to flying drones. We have our own airport, Fagernes Airport, which offers safe and good teachings in a controlled environment. 

Join other studies at our school

In addition to attending your own program, you will also spend time at the other programs our school offers. This way you can attend many of our different classes, both with and without drones. 


As a student you will have the possibility of joining the excursions of other programs. Valdres folkehøyskole travels all over the world! You choose your destination and line of studies you wish to attend during the autumn. Feel free to take a look at the programs and destinations for our other study programs as well.
