The UK’s first CAA-approved drone training facility, AV8 Flight School, is now offering the UK’s first fully virtual EASA drone training programme.
The A2 Certificate of Competence (A2 CofC) is priced at £125.00 and aimed at both hobbyists and commercial users.
It will provide more freedom to pilots in regards to where they can fly.
There is also a General VLOS Certificate (GVC) conversion which includes the A2 CofC and costs £175.
It has been created to support existing PfCO holders who want to transition to the new EASA framework.
The courses are accessible via the company’s Virtual Learning Environment, which facilitates virtual training, exams, student support, certification and is a complete knowledge base for aviation training.
CEO Jon Anderson said: “Today’s announcement is a real milestone for us and one we’ve worked tirelessly towards for the last 18 months. Whilst some providers have dipped their toes into remote training with rudimentary platforms and manual workarounds for support and exams, we’ve created an entire ecosystem that’s singularly focussed towards our student’s success.
“This means we can offer a far superior student experience at a much more reasonable price point. Every aspect of the student experience has been developed to make it as simple, accessible and convenient as possible to achieve certification.”
