Book: CAA PfCO Course

£950.00 ex Vat

With our partners at The Aerial Academy, we offer a two day certification course that covers everything needed to gain a permission for commercial operations (PfCO) from the CAA. This permission is a legal requirement for any person or company that wishes to pilot a drone system for commercial work.

Courses run here in Northumberland have more of an agricultural slant than others and numbers are low, usually between 1 and 5 people.

Courses are run on an ad-hoc basis, so please request a date, and we’ll let you know if its suitable. bookings must be for two or more people. For single bookings, please contact us to see if any dates already have courses running.

or we can arrange for you to attend a course elsewhere in the country:
