The Practical Flight Training Course has been specifically designed for new/amateur drone operators who want to develop their competency and skills by practising air work with our team of trained drone instructors.
It is for people with low drone operating experience who want to develop their skills, or for people looking to move into a more commercial use setting for their drone to practice the skills needed for that.
The course is structured around developing the basic flying skills and techniques used to operate drones. Focussing on hand-eye coordination, manual flying skills and manoeuvres such as take-off, landing/recovery and stable flight techniques for photography/videography.
The course is designed to be 1:1 but can be delivered to a group if you have several people wanting to learn together.
After an introduction and an assessment of your experience level our instructor will then deliver a tailored session to help you get the most from your drone based on what you want to accomplish in a safe, relaxed and informative manner.
Our instructor is also there to answer any questions you may have about drones, operating them in the UK, starting to use the drone commercially etc.
Their experience can help leapfrog you above others in similar positions, teaching you the tips and tricks to get you off the ground faster than your competition.
The main benefit of having a structured practical flight training session is avoiding some of the common mistakes people make with their new drones.
As drones have soared in popularity they have become easier and easier to operate – often leading to false overconfidence in ability – leaving manual flying skills at a relatively low level.
This can lead to costly crashes and damages. A structured practical flight training course can help develop your skills, maximising your safety and operational performance.
