What Drone Training Course Do You Need?

We are currently running two courses A2 CofC and GVC, (GVC can also be used to apply for a PfCO before December 31st 2020).  So which course do you need?

First do you need to complete a course?

  • Will you be flying closer than 150m horizontally from ANY built up area?
  • Will you be flying closer than 50m horizontally from uninvolved people?
  • Your drone weighs more than 4kg Maximum Take-Off Mass.

If you answer Yes to any of the above then you need to complete one of our training courses.

If you plan on flying a drone less than 250g then this maybe flown without any training but only if the risk of flying is low to none to uninvolved people.

  • Flying near uninvolved persons not under your control
  • Flying within built up areas to capture video or photos of buildings but keeping safe distances
