General VLOS Certificate (GVC)
This is the qualification for professional drone pilots. The General VLOS Certificate (GVC) qualification can be used to apply for a CAA Operational Authorisation for the Specific Category. The GVC allows you to fly a drone up to 25kg and gives you the level of credibility you will need to undertake drone operations on behalf of larger organisations.
With a GVC you will also be able to take advantage of new ‘bolt-on’ qualifications that the CAA plan to introduce. The first of these will be for flying extended visual line of sight operations out to 2 kilometers.
