'UAVAir's UAQ course was absolutely brilliant. It was a lot harder than I expected but it gave me the grounding knowledge to operate a drone safely. I learned so much during the course and was really happy with the online portal to help me prepare. I am now confident that I know how to operate a drone using the safest procedures.'
