COMBINED DRONE TRAINING COURSE
This World Class course offers you a combined qualification of the General Visual Line of Sight Certificate (GVC) with the A2 Certificate of Competency (A2CofC) enabling you to gain a wider range of skills and fly drones in both Open and Specific Categories.
An upgrade to GVC for current Flyby A2CofC Alumni is available here.
Please note that the GVC is not valid until 31st December 2020, however taking the course will get you ahead of the game and provide you with a strong foundation of drone pilot knowledge. You will still apply for your PfCO in the meantime, and we will assist you with this process as part of the course.
The remote learning groundschool not only covers everything you need to know about operating your drone safely and within the rules, it also teaches you to think and react like a pilot, giving you the edge in your career and the ability to adapt to the situation.
You'll spend every evening of the week with our expert instructor who will take you through the course and ensure you fully understand the information. You'll take a theory test at the end of groundschool to demonstrate you have met our standards.
We work with you to produce an industry leading Operations Manual (OM) which gives you a competitive edge and will be an excellent point of reference for the processes and behaviours that make an excellent pilot, one of the building blocks of your career.
You will take a Flight Skills Test (FST) at your nearest test centre, we'll ask you for your location when you book, so we can allocate your local instructor. If you have under 10 hours flying experience we would advise you add a day of flight skills training in order to pass the flight skills test. This day is spent with an experienced pilot and will get you confident and ready to take the Flight Skills Test. It costs an additional £451 + VAT.
This unique course combines the GVC syllabus with the A2CofC, so you'll get both qualifications for the price of one, enabling you to offer a wider range of skills to clients.
The course costs £999 + VAT. Invest in yourself and your career by choosing to be trained by the best.
