Unmanned Aircraft Qualification Drone Training Courses that are CAA Compliant

Our drone training course is Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) compliant and once successfully completed, you will gain the Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ). This will serve as proof of competence when applying to the CAA for your Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO). The Unmanned Aircraft Qualification will also allow you to seek employment with an existing drone company that holds a PfCO.

Our drone training course has been designed and developed by commercial airline pilots and professional drone operators. Our instructors are all equally experienced which ensures you, that the training is up-to-date and relevant, satisfying not just the CAA requirements but also prepares you for your first job as a commercial drone operator.

After completing the course, you will gain your Unmanned Aircraft Qualification. At this point we will continue to support you in the writing of your operations manual and will even help you apply to the CAA for your PfCO.
