    OPERATING PROCEDURE

    WALK AWAY WITH YOUR OPERATION MANUAL

    One of the most time consuming parts of gaining your approval to operate is the compilation of your Operations Manual. Our course includes a comprehensive workshop that will walk you through the manual and how it should be structured for the type of operations you will undertake. By the end of the three day course you will have had ample opportunity and guidance to walk away with a completed operations manual.

    PRACTICAL FLYING INCLUDED

    CAA Practical Flying Included

    Our practical element of the course will demonstrate the skills you will need to operate safely and ultimately the ability you need be at to pass the flight assessment. Even better, as the largest retailer of drones in the UK, we supply the most recent drones for you to 'try before you buy' and see what the market has to offer! If you happen to have a bad day during the theory exam or flight assessment, there are no resit fees, which sets us apart from other CAA courses that usually incur a large fee! Once you have passed the practical element of the course our assessor will go through submitting your CAA application there and then so your PfCO is returned as soon as possible.

    WHERE WILL THE TRAINING TAKE PLACE?

    Our bespoke course is made up of part theory and part practical flying but still includes all the comforts of home with overnight accommodation in the scenic heart of Yorkshire. The theory part of the course will take place at the Hotel St Pierre in a private suite offering complimentary drinks and snacks. The practical flying part of the course will take place on a sectioned off part of the Woolley Park golf club to give enough space to safely practice your flying. All of these exclusive extras come at no extra cost and are included in the full price of the course making our course not only unique, but also great value for money and simple for those coming from all over the UK as once you arrive, everything is taken care for you including travel to each location.
