Take A Drone Course At British School Of Aviation


Want to obtain a UK-CAA-approved certificate and progress into the professional drone world but don’t know where to start?

British School of Aviation’s drone courses are ideal for those intending to utilise drones for business purposes.

Buying a drone is easy, but there must be a few pre-requisites that need to be made before flights.

British School of Aviation offers a range of training courses that can guide a complete UAV novice through to being a competent and responsible drone pilot – ensuring that the latest UAV rules and regulations are understood and that safety is paramount.

British School of Aviation’s done courses are brilliant for individuals who wish to operate in environments that are in close range of other people; such as within the construction industry or in development zones.

Throughout these courses, you will focus on the risk that the drone can present to third parties, particularly to uninvolved persons on the ground.

All of our drone courses place an emphasis on having the right CAA competency, oversight, and authorisation. The current regulations are not the easiest to understand and interpret, but our industry-leading instructors lead the discussion on what is or isn’t considered acceptable under certain circumstances within contemporary drone operation.

British School of Aviation has achieved a CAA-approved Recognised Assessment Entity (RAE) status for training commercial drone pilots, enabling them to achieve their GVC competency – General VLOS (Visual Line of Sight) Certificate.


Our Drone Pilot Introductory Course is ideal for anyone who wants to learn how to fly a drone – or become a safer drone pilot. Overall, this course is perfect for anyone who aspires to take their first step towards becoming a professional drone pilot.

Our Drone Pilot Introductory Course seamlessly mixes classroom-based theoretical knowledge lessons with practical training sessions. The latter of which includes hands-on experience under the watchful eye of our experienced course instructor, John Moreland.

This course runs throughout 2021 and 2022 and is typically on sale for £99.00. This course can be purchased via our website. Alternatively, you can contact us via email at info@BSA.word to register your interest.


This course is ideal for aspiring commercial drone operators. Our GVC (General Visual Line of Sight VLOS) Certificate helps recreational or even professional UAV operators achieve their CAA-approved certificate of competency.

This enables them to conduct Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) operations.

The GVC provides the qualification for VLOS operations and is valid for a period of 5 years.

With any drone – that has a fitted camera or is over 250 grams in weight – the UAS pilot SHOULD consider our (GVC) General VLOS Certificate Course.

Our GVC presents the opportunity to make drone pilots more aware of potential hazards and informs them of ways to mitigate the risks that might be present during a flight.
