Get More From Your Flying, and Protect Your Investment.  Have a Flying Lesson

Our Oxford flying lessons take place at the spectacular Manor Hotel, Northampton Rd, Weston-on-the-Green, Bicester OX25 3QL.  Located five minutes from Junction 9 of the M40, the hotel dates from Tudor times, and has fabulous grounds and formal gardens.  Bring a Micro SD card to your lesson, to take your video home with you

Our lessons are always one-to-one with one of our expert, fully PFCO-qualified and insured drone pilots.  In an hour, we can help you to be a safe drone pilot.  After two hours, you will come away knowing:

  • The less well known but important features of the DJI Go App
  • What to focus on when you are flying
  • Our unique 4:4:3 methodology for flying safely and enjoyably
  • The ten most common reasons people crash, and how to avoid them
  • How to answer the crucial questions “Can I fly here” and “Should I fly here”
  • And of course, you will have done plenty of hands-on flying

Fly Like a Pro, Film Like a Pro

We want all of our clients to be able to Fly Like a Pro, and Film Like a Pro. Having a lesson with us is the best start you can make on your drone adventure.  We all know that to learn a foreign language, you are going to need some lessons.  The same is true of drones.  DJI are right when they say that anyone can fly one of their drones straight out of the box.  But we meet very few self-taught drone pilots who fly as well, as safely, or as effectively as we can show you how to.  Whether you are a complete beginner, or a seasoned drone pilot, you will enjoy your flying far more having had a lesson; confident that you have the skills and knowledge you need to fly safely and effectively every time.  That is the crucial first step to getting the most spectacular video and still photos with your drone.  And that is the lasting joy of flying a drone.

Lessons are generally split roughly 50:50 between theory and practical, hands-on flying. This can be adapted to suit your particular interests: whether you are more interested in hands-on flying, or in understanding the DJI Go app, or knowing more about the route to becoming a Commercial Drone Pilot, for example.

During your lesson, you can fly your own drone (we support all DJI and Yuneec drones), or you can fly one of our DJI Phantom 4s.

Note that drones are not waterproof. So we cannot fly in the rain.  If it looks as though it might rain on the date and time of your lesson, we will contact you a few days beforehand to reschedule your lesson.  If we cannot find an alternative date and time to suit you, we will give you a full refund.

Buy a drone worth more than £750 from us, and get a one-hour flying lesson, worth £120, free of charge.

Not sure about buying a drone? Come and fly one of our DJI Phantom4s. If you buy a drone within 30 days of having a lesson with us, we’ll deduct the £120 cost of a one-hour lesson from the price of the drone.

    Spent a fantastic hour with Alan today in perfect settings for a novice to gain valuable knowledge in how and when to fly a drone as safely as possible. He covered everything from legislation and regulations, Do’s & Dont’s, Equipment & Pre-flight checklists. Well worth the time and expense. Thank you Alan

    Alan, faced with a senior novice aspiring to become a safe pilot, introduced me to my Phantom 3 Pro and my first flight.

    The instruction was just what I needed, giving me the confidence to continue alone, building upon the sound platform of this training session and obtaining good photographic results.

    Alan also assisted me with what I found to be an even greater challenge – the well documented and less than straightforward firmware update for which I thank him profusely.

    I have no hesitation in recommending Phantom Flight School to anyone seeking professional tuition.

    Fantastic flight practice and advice provided.

    In terms of flying this really was fantastic providing great tips for both the first time flyer and the more seasoned drone pilot.

    Other advice was not only for the legal aspects of flying drones but helped consider the safety of flying the drone for both the well being of the pilot and for those within close proximity to the device.

    Overall would 100% recommend.
