Overview
Why buy from us?
Drone flying has undoubtedly gained ever more popularity in recent years, but if you've got designs on flying them commercially, then this intensive three day course at Luton Airport will be the ideal entry point into making these dreams a reality! Commercially flying drones that weigh over 250g requires you to be fully GVC qualified. The GVC qualification (or the General Visual Line of Sight Certificate) is what has replaced the former original PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). At this fully comprehensive drone training school, you will be learning under the tutelage of some real experts in their respective fields of piloting, cabin crew and aviation engineering teaching. Your course will consist of two days of theory and one day of practical work, and over the course of your modules, you'll cover air law, responsibility, meteorology, navigation and much more besides. A theory exam will come at the end of your first day, where you'll be asked to apply your learning and knowledge to two given case studies. On your practical flying day - known as the PFA or Practical Flying Assessment - there isn't a particular syllabus you'll be following, there will be various practical flying scenarios that you covered in your two days of theoretical training. Your trainer will be assessing your flying after your pre-flight briefings. And your exams and lessons are all included in the cost of your course, which hopefully, upon completion, will see you become a fully qualified, GVC certified drone pilot.
