Coptrz boldly goes beyond visual line of sight


UK-based commercial drone specialist Coptrz has bolstered its training operations with the addition of beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) tutelage.

The company, which has previously run education workshops on BVLoS, has released the next date for the Introduction to Unmanned Beyond Visual Line of Sight Operations workshop.

The course will be held on 15 May 2018 at the Coptrz training centre in Hook, Hampshire.

The company started: “Beyond visual line of sight operations have been growing in recent years as commercial drone technology has advanced. In order for a CAA PfCO approved drone pilot to operate BVLoS, a special permission must first be granted by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

“The Coptrz Introduction to Unmanned BVLoS Operations workshop will give you the basic knowledge and skills required in all the vital areas required to make a successful application to regulatory authorities and then to conduct BVLoS flying safely.”

The new course date comes after the company recently offered up places on its courses as part of a competition.

Earlier this month the UAV company announced it is offering 10 places on a Coptrz course, worth over £1,000.

As well as a place on a three-day course and one-day flight test, the 10 winners will be invited to Coptrz’ ‘Making Money from Drones’ seminar.
