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 this enhancement to their excellent 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.
We take 3iC’s Online PfCO students further, with the provision of enhanced Ops manual, Operations and Flying Training workshops etc. This culminates in a 3iC recommendation to the CAA for the award of a PfCO.
A Radically Better Course
Priced at £995 + VAT these Phantom Flight School enhanced course modules are 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.
Within the fee, attendees complete the full suite of 3iC PfCO online course materials before they arrive. The first day is spent on theory revision with 3iC instructors, with the required Theory Test being taken that afternoon. This means that the remainder of the time can be devoted to:
- Practical information that will help attendees to be better commercial drone pilots
- Practical hands-on drone flying training with our expert drone pilots
- Support to complete the 3iC Ops Manual template there and then
- More practical flying training followed by a 3iC Flight Assessment
- We will even take you through exactly what is required for the CAA’s online PfCO application process.
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
