** Coronavirus Update - Telephone service **

During the Coronavirus outbreak we are taking measures to protect our team whilst maintaining our high level of service, as such we have closed our offices and the team are now all working from home.

We have also allowed our team to vary their working hours due to the closure of all schools across the UK and the childcare issues this situation creates.

Whilst in place these measures mean we are not working normal office hours and are only responding to email enquiries.

Please send an email with your query to ops@uav-air.com and we will respond as soon as we can.

Our courses

We've trained over 1400 drone pilots on our award-winning UK drone pilot training course since 2014 so are confident when we say it is the market-leading course to get qualified to fly drones commercially. We are an official CAA NQE and also a Proqual approved training centre.

The Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ) that every successful graduate receives, serves as proof of competence when applying to the CAA for a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO), and allows graduates to seek employment with existing drone companies that hold also hold a permission.

Our instructors are highly experienced civilian commercial operators, and many were involved in the design and development of the courses. As former military and civilian, rotary and fixed wing, manned and remote pilots and former air traffic controllers, they ensure that the training is up-to-date and relevant, satisfying not just the CAA requirements but also preparing graduates for their first job as a commercial drone operator.

We have locations across the UK. To view the next dates & locations click the links below or have a look on the course locations map.
