About UAVAir Drone Training School


UAVAir is the leading drone training school in the UK. We’re innovative aviation professionals and it’s our mission to help you understand the advantages drones can offer your organisation. As a talented group of former military and civilian, rotary and fixed-wing, manned and remote pilots and former air traffic controllers, we understand the intricacies of operating in the national airspace system and can help you navigate the process from start to finish.

With our Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and National Qualified Entity (NQE) status in the UK, we are perfectly placed to be a guiding force for organisations introducing and embedding drones into their operations.

We offer a range of expert and tailored drone pilot training to companies across the globe. As industry trailblazers, we were one of the first to offer drone training. At UAVAir, we believe in creating the best possible learning environment and experience for our candidates. This means we never cancel a course and also provide free telephone support and a student Facebook group to aid collaboration.

Our founders and course designers are manned airline pilots holding ATPLs and a plethora of flying hours in accordance with operations manuals and procedures in some of the busiest airspace in the world. Trickling down fundamental principles from manned aviation such as CRM and a ‘just culture’ ensures we equip you with the right mindset to have a safe and successful career as a drone pilot.

With many operations carried out across the world for high-profile events such as the 2016 blockbuster ‘London Has Fallen’, flying in Africa & filming the Rudimental music video ‘Not Giving In’ shot on location in the Philippines, our instructors are some of the most experienced operators in the world, which gives you the best possible start in this exciting new industry.

The combined knowledge of the executive training team comprises of over 40 years of flying, 20,000 commercial hours, 8 years in the civilian drone industry including hundreds of sub-7kg and sub-20kg drone operations. Our Chief Flight Assessor has over 27 years of RC flying experience alone and is qualified to BMFA Club Examiner standard.
