    I had wondered whether 90 minute lessons would be too long, absolutely not, so pleased I booked the course!

    In addition to the PfCO Course, I highly recommend the Fly Like A Pro Film Like A Pro online course…. it’s fun, packed with useful information and ideas, and the perfect way to build the confidence to excel in the air and in business. Thank you.

    I was immediately impressed with the ‘can do’ attitude and skillset of the PFS team, and had no hesitation in asking them for advice regarding the PFCO qualification and drones. With genuine advice regarding the perfect drone for my photography needs, and a range of online courses available, I was quickly introduced to the vital skills, then trained, then tested to my first-time pass. A total of 28 days from the Mavic 2 Pro arriving, to the CAA licence being delivered. Enroute I learned how to be a drone operator, as well as an aerial photographer and videographer. PFS introduced me to skilful professionals with a range of experience and helpful anecdotes of how to do it correctly. As a bonus they even helped me with the complexities of applying for the licence.

    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.

    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
