Are you looking for a ground school to really help you get started? The DronePartners course takes you beyond a basic ground school course. With 3 days of classroom training covering the key education goals required by the UK CAA, practical flight planning and safe setup demonstration we really give you the confidence you need.

Upon completion of this course, passing the exam and flight test you will be able to apply for a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) with the UK CAA.
