Just completed the PFCO course - just want to thank Andy and the team for their helpfulness and availability throughout - it made life so easy for me as someone who had very little idea about aviation and things like Ops Manuals !



We are a security team who needed to get some of our staff trained with their PFCOs so we could carry out security patrols of our grounds more easily and enhance our operations for our clients.



Great course, Andy and his team delivered really informative learning and help throughpout the course in a user-friendly style. Would highly recomend The Drone College for any PFCO training.

Online Groundschool

Groundschool training online instead of a 2-day classroom course.

And during this Covid 19 emergency we have been given approval by the CAA to do the written exam online too.


Online support followed by a 2 day brush up course at a venue of your choice.Classroom training is temporarily suspended through the Covid 19 emergency

Flight Assessment

Were you training with an NQE that has ceased trading but still need to do the flight assessment ? Or are you exempt from the groundschool element of the PFCO training?

Go straight for Ops Manual and Flight Assessment.

We have been given authority by the CAA to extend the PFCO time limit to get Flight Assessments completed until 1st September 2020.


Not sure which is the best option for you?

Get in touch and we will be happy to provide you with assistance.
