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

Our Bradford flying lessons take place at the well-known Mercure Hotel Bradford Bankfield, Bradford Rd, Bingley BD16 1TU.  The grounds have beautiful views across the River Aire, making this a great place to fly

Our lessons are always one-to-one with one of our expert, fully PFCO-qualified and insured drone pilots to give you the best possible drone experience.  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

Book a two-hour lesson and bring a friend or family member free of charge

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 drones.

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 drones. 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.

    Had a great session with Alan in my 1hr one-to-one lesson in Bradford. Very organised, and concentrated on the things necessary for a beginner to gets to grips with. The practical session was brilliant and gave me the confidence to launch my drone higher and fly further away from me than I’d done previously, and gave me some tips on ways to practice familiarisation with the flight controls. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is new to drone flying or still in the thinking about it stage.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my 2hr one-to-one flying lesson with Steve. Very thorough in the pre-flight prep which I found very informative. Great practical flight experience & would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of buying a drone.

    I had a very thorough and enjoyable 2 hour lesson with Steve at the Mercure Hotel in Bradford today. Steve has a wealth of knowledge and passes this over in an easy and friendly delivery. Having a 2 hour lesson gives time for the theory and practical (thanks for that tip Simon). If you’re buying a drone take advantage of these lessons, they are well worth it!
    Thanks for your help today Steve

    Great experience. Incredibly useful tips and advice. Flying time was slightly limited but in one hour, it is difficult to fit everything in to one’s complete satisfaction. Steve continued to provide helpful advice and help after the lesson, which was great. Overall, very satisfied.

    My lesson took place in Bradford after booking online, the Flight School called me to arrange a date, they assigned Steve for me as my trainer, he contacted me to arrange a specific time and everything went according to plan.
    I had my two hour lesson at the Mercure in Bradford. What a fantastic feeling of relief to know I was now flying correct, safely and my concerns about the controls were now a thing of the past. Thank you Steve.
