Who this course is for
If you want to either become a competent drone pilot or take your first steps toward becoming a professional drone pilot, then this is the course for you. Maybe you have just purchased your first drone and want to fly it safely, maybe you have a drone gathering dust because you never got to grips with it.
Duration of the course is half a day and being in the UK it is of course weather dependent, although we do like you to fly in challenging conditions within reason and of course well supervised.
