Good things happen slowly.
Bad things happen fast

The legendary Alex Ferguson was fond of saying “Good things happen slowly. Bad things happen fast”. We think this is true in life, in football, and when it comes to drone flying. All DJI drones are remarkably well made, and it is usually quite straight-forward to quickly get the hang of the basics. But to truly fly well, and capture stunning photos and videos, takes longer.

Many drone fliers are happy to stick with a basic understanding of what the drone can do, leave everything on auto, rely on the collision avoidance and intelligent return to home functions to get them out of trouble, and just get out flying. And that’s absolutely fine. In a two hour one-to-one lesson, costing £199, either face to face or on Zoom, with one of our outstanding fully-qualified Drone Pilots, we can get you familiar with the drone, the transmitter, and what you can see on the screen. We can make sure you understand how to follow a checklist to prepare your drone for flight. And we can answer any questions you may have about where you can fly legally, and where it will be fun to fly safely.

“There are lots of different paths to glory! Just as there are many choices on an a la carte menu. But if like us, you have ever felt overwhelmed when confronted with a 40 page menu in a restaurant, you know it makes sense to head for “the specials / chef’s recommendations”. 

Our recommendations 

Consider a one-to-one face-to-face lesson. The best way to get into good drone habits is to avoid drone bad habits. A one to one lesson, whether face to face, or on Zoom, will set you on the right path from the start. 

Think about doing an A2 CofC Course. Either with us, or with one of the online providers. The online courses offered by UAVHub and Coptrz are very good, very cheap, and will give you a good understanding of what is what in terms of drone regulations. Ours is better, of course, because it includes half a day of face to face, in the field, practical drone training. Whichever you choose, it makes sense.

Definitely join us on one or two of our “In a Day” Courses, to help build your knowledge, see how other drone enthusiasts do things, and gain confidence about where to fly and what to film. 

You really should sign up for whichever of our Fly Like a Pro, Film Like a Pro Courses feels like it will fit your needs and interests best. FLAP FLAP is, in our view, our secret sauce. Let’s keep this between ourselves. It’s special. Welcome! 

To take things further, think about joining us for one of our Iconic Drone Days. In spectacular, challenging, interesting locations. Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland. Central London in London. Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. Portland Bill Lighthouse in Dorset. Track Days in Kent and Cheshire. Ladies Day at Ascot, in Ascot. 

And to put the cherry on the cake, book one of our Masterclasses, in the UK or Europe. This is where the learning curve goes vertical. Where you will bring it all together. And where you are most likely to take award winning images and video.”

If you want to go deeper, we’ve got that covered. In 100 hours

Obviously, everyone is different. In life, and with drones. In our experience though, it takes around 100 hours of curated learning to cover all the bases to do with drones. You can do this quickly or slowly. We have clients who have gone from having no experience of drones to having a drone business employing multiple pilots in less than three months. We also have clients who are happy to be still on their personal drone learning curve six or seven years after buying their first drone. If you are starting from scratch, our recommendation is that you aim to invest 100 hours in this project, over a timeframe of 12 – 18 months.

In that time, we will take you on a curated drone

I had a very informative and enjoyable two hour lesson with Tony. He is extremely knowledgeable and a very patient teacher. I have rediscovered my confidence in flying and will be now be looking for opportunities to fly. I understand the drones capabilities much more fully and discovered a lot of things about the app that I was unaware of. Thanks Tony and PhantomFlightSchool. Kind regards Jenny

I just wanted to say a huge thanks. After trawling through loads of terrible information, misleading and confusing I read your article on the new regulations. It’s a fantastic read and really easy to understand. Thank you. Regards Phil

Evening Alan, Just a quick note to say how much I have enjoyed the course (even the theory!), if you could pass on my thanks to Paul and Rob for today as their knowledge was fantastic and went above in beyond in providing hints and tips for flying in the most horrendous conditions! Thanks again and hopefully see you soon on further courses. Cheers Ian

Hi Simon, Thanks for the course, I loved it and so glad I came back to PhantomFlightSchool for the PfCO. I would never normally say this, I think I am already on your mailing lists, but if you have any other courses that may be of interest then I would definitely be up for it with time permitting. Hope to speak again soon! Regards Jon
