A2 CofC Full Online Course

Only £59

Understand the changes to a A2 CofC

The A2 CofC allows the Remote Pilot who holds it, to reduce or remove some of the new EASA restrictions that will affect all remote pilots. It allows for more flexibility on how and where you can fly, whether this is done for commercial work or recreational purposes.

The Course

Our CAA Approved A2 CofC course is a great way to get the certification needed to operate your drones legally. You will study 3 modules on this course; Meteorology, UAS Flight Performance and UAS Flight Operations and when you are ready to take your exam, simply let us know and we can arrange an appointment for your exam. 

This course is 100% online, with tutors available during office hours to answer any questions you may have.

  • Free exam retakes 

  • No flight test or operations manual needed 

  • You'll receive your certificate via email 

Transitional Period (December 31st 2020 - December 31st 2022) - From the 31st December 2020 an A2 CofC allows you to:

  • Fly your drone in the A2 (Open) subcategory (drones up to 2kg) and the A1 subcategory (drones up to 500g)

  • Fly without the usual 150m separation distance from congested areas used by people, (congested area definition is an area used for residential, recreational, industrial and commercial purposes).

  • Fly your sub-2kg drone to within 50m of uninvolved people (A2 subcategory)

  • Fly your sub-500g drone with no restrictions on proximity to uninvolved people, but not directly overhead, (A2 subcategory) 

Continuing Period (December 31st 2022 onwards) - From the 31st of December 2020 an A2 CofC allows you to:

  • Fly your drone in the A2 (open) subcategory (with an appropriate class drone up to 4kg) and the A1 subcategory (with an appropriate C-class drone up to 900g) 

  • Fly without the usual 150m separation distance from places used by people (congested area definition is an area used for residential, recreational, industrial and commercial purposes).

  • Fly your sub-4 kg C-class drone to within 30m of uninvolved people (reduced to 5m when in slow speed mode) (A2 subcategory)

  • Fly your sub-900g C-class drone with no restrictions on proximity to uninvolved people (but not directly overhead) (A1 subcategory)

This now gives the remote pilot freedom to operate a drone commercially, without any special CAA permissions from the 31st December 2020 BUT still requires insurance compliant with EC-785 2004.

I went for the A2 C of C Course and the level of support I received was second to none. All the tutorials are done online and can also be done at the comfort of your own home and at a pace that is suitable to yourself. After completing the tutorials you can download valuable revision documents in order to prepare yourself for the exam. The exam itself is also done online via a Zoom call, 30 question - multiple choice answer exam. Your given 75 minutes to complete exam which is very very generous as I was able to complete and review my answers and submit exam within 25 minutes. Passed exam and was issued with my Certificate immediately via email. All for an amazing price from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend Infratec Drones to anyone thinking of doing the course.

After looking around for an A2 CofC, I settled with Infratec mainly due to how professional they looked and at a reasonable price. Signup was very easy and straightforward, the enrolment in the pre course was seamless and the pre course reading material were interesting and relevant. The self-paced modules are great with a mix of written and video content.

 

The exam process was smooth with Lee setting me at ease and setting expectation, make sure you have Zoom installed. Don’t let the price put you off, Lee’s ethos is making it affordable to all, thus increasing a safer community.

 

Overall A+ a very satisfied customer

Great, easy to follow course with support always readily on hand if needed. Prior to the course, the various qualifications, temporary transition regulations, and categories seemed very confusing - by the end of the course you will understand it. Provided you have an interest in things that fly, this is neither difficult or overly demanding. If you don't have an interest, you probably shouldn't be flying anything anyway! Most enjoyable and will literally take my existing photography business to another level!

I’ve been flying drones now for a number of years commercially under the PfCO but last year let my PfCO lapsed as I didn’t use it as regularly as I had liked. When the new CAA regulations came into effect on Jan 1st this year, I decided it was time to go back into commercial flying under the A2 category. Lee at INFRATEC Drones was incredibly helpful in offering friendly and professional advice on the new regulations and what would fit my purpose. I will be certainly returning to his company should I need further training or equipment.
