The lesson was excellent and ‘inspired’ me with confidence. The comprehensive check lists were great essentials which added to my knowledge base. I can highly recommend PhantomFlightSchool. Graham
Protect your Investment. Book a Flying Lesson
We are the UKs longest established and most popular drone flying school. We have delivered more than 3,000 hours of flying lessons, and are proud to have as training clients ARM Technology, Bath Spa University, Cambridge University, the CAA, DRONE Magazine and Save the Children, as well as many 100s of businesses, professional photographers and PfCO qualified commercial drone pilots.
Flying a DJI drone is more often than not straight-forward. But there are a number of ways in which you can get tripped up. And tripping up can be expensive. Over the course of 1,000s of successful drone flights, we have worked out a methodology for flying a drone so that every flight is a safe flight. We have also perfected the art of getting the best from the camera on every type of DJI drone.
So whether you are a complete beginner, or already familiar with flying a drone, we are confident there will be things we can teach you that will make a real difference to how you fly and film with your drone. All lessons are one-to-one with one of our expert PfCO qualified and fully insured drone pilots.
A one hour lesson is £120, and a more in-depth two hour lesson is £200, incl VAT. Click on one of our flying site locations to the right to see availability and to book your flying lesson.
Become a Successful Commercial Drone Pilot – Complete your PfCO in Just Three or Four Days from start to finish with PhantomFlightSchool
We have helped 100s of people to get their PfCO and become commercial drone pilots. We believe we are the only people in the country who can:
- Advise you on which drone and accessories to purchase
- Sell you a drone
- Show you how to fly it
- Deliver a radically different PfCO Course, during which you will complete Ground School, your Operations Manual, and your Flight Test in just three or four days
- Advise you on how to make a commercial success of your business once you have your PfCO.
We have poured everything we know about flying and filming with a drone into making getting your PfCO as swift, easy and cost-effective as possible. More information and dates for upcoming courses can be found HERE. Price of the course is from £995 excl VAT. Please call us on 01244 893 872 or email [email protected] for more information.
Teaching you the practicalities of flying a drone to the standard required to obtain your PfCO generally requires 3 to 4 hours of one-to-one practical flight training with one of our PfCO qualified expert pilots. This is best done in two sessions of two hours we find. One at the beginning, and one a couple of weeks before your flight test. You should plan to spend 4 – 6 hours of “practicing with purpose” using the skills we have shown you between the two in order to become proficient.

PhantomFlightSchool Drone Flying Holidays
PhantomFlightSchool are the acknowledged experts in camera-drone holidays. Following two sell-out five-day trips to Andalucia in Spain in 2016, we expanded our programme of flying holidays for 2017. There were four trips to Spain, two in May and two in September and our first trip to the French Pyrenees in October. All of these sold-out and were a great success. For 2018 we are building on this, adding Corfu, Iceland and the USA to an expanded programme of Spanish and French trips. And for those who prefer not to travel quite so far we have even added Snowdonia to our list of destinations!
Coming on a drone flying holiday with us gives you the opportunity to fly with like-minded drone enthusiasts, in places few people could find or would feel comfortable flying on their own. In Spain we fly over ruined castles, steep gorges, clifftops overlooking the sea, and stunning green / blue lakes. In France we up the ante somewhat, with stunning mountain locations offering more challenging but very rewarding photo opportunities. Corfu presents a totally different palette of marine locations while Iceland is pretty much a byword for amazing spectacles and the USA has the Grand Canyon and so much more! In the UK, we’ve tracked down some amazing places to fly, and always have locations in different directions in reserve, so that we can dodge any bad weather there may be. And you are always flying under the expert gaze of one of our hugely experienced PfCO qualified drone pilots, who is there to support and guide you every time you take off.
Flying and filming together, comparing flight plans, camera settings, and shooting angles and directions, everyone learns from each other. Whatever your standard when you join one of our trips, you will go home with knowledge and expertise that will enhance all of your future drone flying and filming. Join us for the trip of a lifetime in 2018.
