We have twelve PfCO qualified drone pilots on the team, flying commercial missions, and teaching practical drone flying skills, every day.  During 2018 we taught more than 1,000 people how to fly drones, and supported more than 4,500 drone flights.  We put everything we have learned from this deep experience of drone flying into every PfCO Course.  To give you the very best start to your commercial drone flying career possible.


Our unique Course structure includes everything you need to get your PfCO immediately you complete our Course.  During the Course we cover all this: Ground School; Theory Test; Operations Manual completion; Practical Drone Flying Training; Risk assessment and Pre-flight Planning; Insurance options; and Flight Test.  We even help you to fill out your application form to apply for your PfCO from the CAA.

    I loved this experience. Paul is good at explaining everything. He is very friendly, has a good sense of humour, and is easy to talk to.

    ps will be doing more flying with confidence now, thanks to PhantomFlightSchool

  2. Eugene O’Hara

    Many thanks for last weeks PfCO Course tuition in Chester. The whole course was a masterclass on the professional approach to preparing, and flying safely and competently, and at the same time was a thoroughly enjoyable learning experience.
    Although this is only the start of my flying journey, I will have no hesitation in recommending you and PhantomFlightSchool to anyone else who wants to be taught by the best, to be the best!
    Best Regards

    Many thanks to Brendan for a helpful, friendly and informative lesson. From the introductory talk through to the actual flying lesson, he answered my many questions and gave me the confidence to now go and practice on my own. He also answered questions that will inform my choice of ‘proper’ drone when I am ready to buy. Thanks again!

    I would just like to thank Brendan for Saturdays lesson. I arrived slightly early and was welcomed inside where the kettle was put on, great start. Brendan went through lots of interesting and relevant information which, as a first timer, was a very good foundation for my experience.
    On to the actual flights. I instantly felt at ease and could feel my confidence growing by the minute thanks, in no small part, to Brendans relaxed, calming and reassuring style of teaching.
    I came away smiling and indeed hooked on the prospect of taking this further. Next stop is to purchase a drone from Phantom and see about a date to undertake one of their PfCO courses.
    To anyone toying with the idea of giving it a try, I can’t recommend Phantom Flight School and Brendan enough,
    Many thanks,

  7. Chris Ross

    Had a great lesson with Tony. It was great to get some good base knowledge before the practical part of the lesson. There is a lot to know and Tony took me through it in a way that made it interesting and understandable. The practical flying was great, it’s a great location. It was great to get confidence before I bought my own drone. I’d highly recommend Tony as an instructor and having a lesson.

    My son and I had a 2 hour lesson with Gordon and we both found it very informative. We had both flown drones for a while but totally self taught. It was great to get lots of hints and tips on some of the more advanced flying techniques and features of our drones. Thoroughly recommend.
