Welcome to the UAV Academy
The UAV Academy is a CAA full National Qualified Entity (NQE) approved by the CAA to train and assess pilots of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) up to 20kg. We are here to help put you on your path to safe and rewarding commercial drone operations. The syllabus for this training is set by the CAA. Successful completion of our course culminates in our recommendation to the CAA for you to be issued with a Permission For Commercial Operations (PfCO).
The UAV Academy was established to serve the training needs of the rapidly growing unmanned aircraft industry through classroom and flight skills coaching for the professional UAV pilot. Our mission is to help drone pilots acquire the knowledge and skills needed to operate effectively, safely and legally by providing training that is professional, engaging and ultimately rewarding.

What our customers are saying
There are many companies in the UK offering training for the PfCO qualification to allow the use of drones for commercial use, so how do you decide which of these companies to trust your development to?
With UAV Academy my experience from the very first contact has been outstanding. Andrew took time to talk through the PfCO course with me in great detail, answered any of my questions and confirmed it was the right course for me. The quality of the printed training materials supplied, combined with simple to use online learning allowed me to prepare well in advance of the classroom learning.
My trainer was fantastic. Not only did he ensure the syllabus was delivered comprehensively, he was able to apply the learning to real world examples which really will improve my safety and also how I can maximise the commercial value of my PfCO and drone equipment. Exceptional learning delivered with care and personal service. 5 stars UAV Academy, thank you.
