“Fast, cost effective and professional. Highly recommended!”
“Really thorough course, knowledgeable instructors and a challenging flight assessment.
I’ve recommended them to friends looking to get into commercial drones also.”
“UAVAir were absolutely the right NQE to choose, the distance learning is a great way to get familiar with the material that you need to use through out the course, the course itself was clearly delivered by working professionals in this industry and manned aviation which gives you the candidate a great knowledge base to draw from, the venue unfortunately had teething issues but we’re very quickly ironed out in a professional manor, and the dreaded flight test was no where near as daunting as I thought it would be due the assessors professional approach to the test”
“The course was great – the tutors were fantastic and made the whole thing tick”
“I just wanted to say that the course I’ve just completed and pass was excellent Michael and Andrew were fantastic with us and really shared their knowledge and it was extremely worth while.
Both are very good course teachers.”
“I would just like to say thank you for the great course this weekend. Both Michael and Andrew were fantastic on the course work training and I couldn’t fault any part of the course. Also Phil was great on the flight assessment and I would recommend your course to anyone in the future.
I wanted to let you know the reason I chose UAV for the course, after doing a lot of research online at the many courses available by other providers your company was the only one I couldn’t find any negative feedback on, even from people who had failed various parts in the past, and after doing the course myself I can honestly see why you have no bad feedback.”
“I spent quite a bit of time looking at different training providers but went with UAVAir because they were very helpful and willing to accommodate our particular needs. They were able to run a course on our own premises, which saved a significant amount of money in travel and subsistence costs. Their charges were also competitive. The quality of the self-study materials was high, and delivery of the training was very good. As an academic institution, our needs were somewhat different to their regular clients, but the trainers were experienced operators and able to address all of our questions. I have no hesitation in recommending UAVAir to other groups or individuals seeking UAV training.”
“Amazing professional service and great support thought the whole course. Would recommend them to anyone looking to take up UAV.”
“Excellent three-day course in Uttoxeter in January. Tutors were highly knowledgeable and informative. All conducted in a friendly, professional manner. Test-day nerves were quickly put to rest and I came through successfully. Highly recommended.”
“Fantastic tuition and great quality of training, to say I already fly commercially it was fantastic to look at a different perspective to unmanned aviation! The instructors and flight examiners are very professional and knowledgeable and a great help, many thanks for all your help!”
“Did the abbreviated course in February in Chepstow as I already hold a Pilots licence, I have to say the wealth of experience in the training room regarding RPAS training was second to none. From the aviation world a First Officer and from the RPAS world an operator that has worked with the BBC. Both delivered their side of the training with clarity and authority, and answering some difficult questions from the students along the way.”
“If you want to learn the right way to fly a UAV, then these are the guys to talk to. It’s a tough course but well worth the effort.”
“As a novice, I was concerned that the course would be too intense and technical. The course study material and tests that you have to complete in advance is excellent. It allows you to proceed at your own pace and arrive at the course fully prepared.”
“I would recommend UAVAir’s course to anyone that is thinking about doing it. From someone with no aviation experience, I was walking away a much better and safer operator.
Thank you guys.”
