Great from the start to the assessment. Training material is easy to use, follow and understand. Always ready to answer questions and offer assistance. Online sessions are a great way to discuss matters that concern individuals and also creates a good environment for discussions between each student. I took the 5-hour training and assessment option which was a huge benefit. The training was invaluable and not just for flight control but also for the important pre-site and on-site paperwork and risk assessments. Was made to feel very welcome and put me at ease despite my obvious nerves. Every step of the way being given guidance and way to improve. Made to feel very welcome. I’ve had a great time doing the course and look forward to developing my skills based on the feedback from my assessment.

I have just completed the A2 Certificate of Competence with the UAV Academy. They maintained excellent, prompt communications and feedback throughout the Course. Their Course structure and material are thorough and effective without being unduly wordy. I can confidently recommend the UAV Academy to anyone considering undertaking this Course.

“The online course was perfect for me – busy, working mum who couldn’t do the 3-day course due to school runs etc.
I could do the course at my own pace and book each stage once I was happy to continue. The online classes were a good time to talk through a few things. Booking the exam and flight assessment when I was ready-made sure that it didn’t feel too rushed.
All round a really great course, thanks Andrew and Co.”

I simply cannot recommend UAV Academy highly enough! A thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience from start to finish. Andrew and Rob are incredibly knowledgeable and will guide you through the key areas in a clear and concise manner to enable you to fly your drone safely.

I have just returned home from my Flight Assessment with Rob at the Wiltshire test site. I was rather nervous leading up to it but Rob was fantastic helped me through the process and was there by my side when I needed guidance.

I recommend UAV Academy 100%

Rob Tarrent

Have just successfully completed my Drone, A2 Certificate of Competency with The UAV Academy. A lot harder than I thought it would be, and a lot more to it than I ever thought. I can’t recommend UAV Academy highly enough for anyone looking to do their A2 CofC! Now onto the full GVC course

Harvey Dunstan

Completed my A2 CofC with the UAV Academy. Faultless throughout. Quick response to any queries, informative and user-friendly course interface. Would definitely recommend and use again for further courses.

Luke Grinstead

A massive thank you to UAV Academy for helping me to pass my A2 CofC exam. Their online course was easy to follow and I could study at my own pace when I had time. The course had great content and help was only an email away. (To which replies were very quick) I felt it prepared me perfectly for the exam and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do any of their available courses. I am now less restricted to where I can fly and feel more prepared for each future flight. Thank you guys again.

I came to the UAV Academy having never flown a UAV of any kind so starting right from scratch. The course was really well structured. Flight training was with Rob Coles whom I can’t speak highly enough off. Thanks Rob you put Mark and Myself at ease right from the start. I really liked the way Rob adapted the training as we improved to give us some experience of the type of work we will be undertaking. I would recommend the UAV Academy to anyone. Thanks Guys for all your help.

Just completed my A2 CofC, with UAV Academy. The course was well thought out & presented, making learning a pleasant experience. Andrew was always on hand to give answers if needed & replied quickly. Overall, I would highly recommend UAV for all your training needs. I will be doing my GVC with these guys soon.

I’m able to compare your service with one of your competitors and your service was far superior. Your course handbook was great and I was not overloaded with useless PDF’s to print out myself. Your competitors notes were not as detailed as yours; yours were more to the point. Having the option to take my practical examination at multiple destinations including one just 7 miles away from me was a huge benefit. You have surpassed my expectations of what I expected. Thank you.

Successful Flight Operations Assessment with our Flight Examiner Rob Coles

What an amazing experience I had with all those associated with The UAV Academy. Highly professional staff and well-tailored resources to pass all the exams. All the way through the process I was guided and I would highly recommend the online course for those not able to make it to a ground school. Ideal for learners who prefer learning in their own time in their own way. 5/5! Fantastic!

Brilliant knowledge base and support even after the course is done. Lovely People

Seb Pecchia

Fantastic course delivered in an engaging and practical manner based on leading industry experience, so glad I didn’t opt for an online course with another provider.

Rob Dennis

Just completed the combined A2 CofC and GVC online PfCO conversion course. The course was fantastic, easy to use via the UAV academy course dashboard. Andrew Bailey was a great help with the course. Highly recommend UAV academy.
Dave Maund

Having just completed the course I cannot recommend using the UAV academy enough. their online learning platform is fantastic and seamless and very easily fits around an already very busy schedule. the learning resources were comprehensive and easy to understand. the flight assessment, whilst I was nervous, was a breeze thanks to the examiner Rob being great at keeping me calm and focused.

Andrew has been great with providing advice and help from my initial call (which is why I choose The UAV Academy over others). Completed the A2CofC today and look forward to finishing my GVC (when lockdown eases for flight assessment). User experience of the whole process has been superb and exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

Excellent.. a totally enjoyable course, which was very interesting and informative. The staff were more than helpful, and keen to assist at all stages…. I highly recommend UAV Academy, and to be totally honest, I can not think of anything you should change!… Probably the best training course I have attended in my 31 year career…. Thank you
