28th September 2020
Currently (before December 31st 2020) to operate a drone commercially in the UK you need what is known as a PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operations) from the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). The INFRATEC UAS GVC/PfCO course will allow you to gain the knowledge set out by the CAA in CAP722 to work towards your permission. Our course will be 2 days ground school followed by a practical flying test that suits you. If this is complete before December 31st 2020 you can still apply for a PfCO, after this date you will be applying for a GVC. As a CAA RAE we can issue you with a certificate of competency that you will use to apply for your permission from the CAA.
Anyone who wishes to operate drones commercially before December 31st and anyone who wishes to fly over 4kg drones in public areas after 31st December.
