I just wanted to express my enjoyment on the fast track course. It was a thoroughly enjoyable 3 days and instilled a good level of knowledge and confidence. A massive part of this was down to Michael Surcombe who ran the course in a way that made it really accessible and relatable to the varied drone applications of the students. All round a top course that I would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
