Drone Courses

Our UK drone pilot training course is market-leading and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) compliant. The Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ) that every successful graduate receives, serves as proof of competence when applying to the CAA for a PfCO, and allows graduates to seek employment with existing drone companies that 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 are the only NQE whose Unmanned Aircraft Qualification (UAQ) is dual-recognised; not only by the CAA but also by ProQual as an academic recognition of your capabilities as a drone pilot.
