It is a 5 day residential course designed to encourage close-control skill with your drone without any knowledge or experience of the industry.

Starting from that position UAVAir have designed a Basic Flight Training syllabus that incorporates the key flying attributes a pilot new to the industry should have:

  • Pitch, Roll and Throttle Management
  • Climbing, Descending
  • Diagonal Motion
  • Yaw and Orientation Management
  • Circular Motion and Point of Interest Work
  • Depth Perception and Tracking

In addition students are taught from the very first time they fly (exactly the same as in manned aviation) a commercial methodology of operation to prevent any bad habits developing in the first instance:

  • Pilot Flight Time Logging
  • Aircraft, Battery, Propeller Logging
  • Maintenance Techniques
  • Battery Management

Professional organisations and commercial businesses are looking for a high standard of monitored training, guaranteed lead time and the right organisation to deliver this.  With the 5-day flight training course to PfCO level, that time has come.

As this is primarily a training course designed for businesses, if you are an individual still interested in grouping up with other like-minded professionals please contact us using the form below and we will add your name to a list of those wanting to take their whole course in Spain.  Once we have enough interest we would contact you.
