Why choose Phantom Flight School?
Over the last three years, we have supported literally hundreds of clients through the process of getting their PfCO, in order to use their drone commercially.
Sad to say, we were not impressed by the way most of the training entities delivering the Course seem to focus on the bit that is easy for them, namely the Theory Training and Test. Leaving the hard parts, being the Operations Manual, Flight Training, and Flight Test, to candidates to figure out for themselves.
We found that an unacceptable number of people got “stuck” somewhere in the process having paid their money and completed Ground School. Often for months.
So, in May 2017, in collaboration with 3iC (NQE No. 0116/1625), we launched our Radically Better PfCO Course. With a total focus on ensuring our attendees get all the way from A to Z during the Course itself. Whilst we cannot make promises, so far that is exactly what we have achieved on every Course we have run.
A Radically Better PfCO Course
Priced at £995 + VAT our Courses run over three days (five days for overseas Courses). Courses alternate monthly between Chester and Maidstone, with two Courses in Spain in May (£1,950 + VAT incl full board and accommodation), as well as one Course in West Sussex in August, one in Edinburgh in September and one in Surrey in October.
Attendees complete a full suite of online course materials before they arrive. The first day is spent on revising, with the Theory Test being taken that afternoon. Meaning the remainder of the time can be devoted to:
- Practical information that will actually help attendees to be better drone pilots
- Practical hands-on drone flying training with our expert drone pilots
- Support to complete the Ops Manual there and then
- More practical flying training and Flight Test
- We will even review all of your paperwork before you send it off to the CAA to make sure it is correct.
This way, we are compressing what usually takes people two to three months into just three days. And adding value to the experience at every step of the way.
Specifically, on a PhantomFlightSchool PfCO Course, you get everything you need to immediately submit your application to the CAA including:
- Practical Flight Training
- Ground School
- Ops Manual
- Theory Test
- Flight Test
