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

Our Bristol flying lessons take place in the beautiful grounds of the Mercure Hotel, Bristol North The Grange, Old Gloucester Rd, Frampton Cotterell, Bristol BS36 1RP.

  • 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 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.

    Thanks Alan,

    Good to meet you. As you saw I found it hugely inspirational and rewarding. Thanks also for your positive comments. When is the next time you are at Bristol so we can look at the camera and instrumentation please?

    A great day. Thanks.

    Just to say “Thank You” for the flying lesson and instruction this morning (22nd December 2016).
    All I have to do now is put into practice your advice and tips. I will have to “unlearn” a lot of the gliding knowledge. For example if I had performed a rapid ascent in a club glider the Chief Flying Instructor would have called me a “pole bender” (on the stick) because it would have put undue stress on the launch cable and airframe and probably broken something.
    Also this vertical landing is going to take a bit of getting used to as is the reverse landing (which is quite logical when you are not actually on board ship)
    All very well explained and thanks for your patience.
    I had watched the DJI video tutorials from “unboxing” to “how to fly” online but your bespoke two hour session was just what I needed to get the best out of my Phantom 4.
