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

We are very fortunate to have the renowned local architect Gordon Melrose giving lessons in Edinburgh from the grounds of the Stair Arms Hotel overlooking beautiful open farmland.  A wonderful  location, with great views, it is a real privilege to be able to fly here.

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

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

Flight School – Edinburgh

At our Edinburgh flying school, each flying lesson lasts around one hour.  We teach people of all drone flying abilities, from complete beginners to experts.  If you are a beginner, during the lesson we will explain the controls for the drone, take you through the DJI Go app, discuss safe flying techniques, and then take you flying.  If you are buying a drone from us, the flying lesson is FREE.  In this case, we will set the drone up with you, and ensure your maiden flight is safe and enjoyable.

If you are not sure yet about buying a drone, book a lesson with us, and fly one of our DJI drones.  If you decide to go ahead with the purchase of a drone within 30 days of your lesson, we’ll deduct your lesson cost from the price of the drone.

For a really in-depth session, why not book two hours instead of one?  See below the dates and times we are giving flying lessons in Edinburgh.

Flight School is free with any purchase from us worth £750 or more.


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.
