Practical Drone Flying Course

Not sure whether you need a GVC or A2 CofC course? Completed your qualification, but not sure what to do next? To bridge the gap between the DMARES learning and formal commercial drone qualifications like the GVC & A2 CofC, and to help those who want to develop their knowledge, our Practical Drone Flying: The Basics course satisfies that need.

Primarily aimed at those operating in the A1 sub category of the Open category with a sub 250g drone, this series of lectures we'll take you through some hints and tips on how to use your drone safely in the UK's airspace. This is not a regulations course, so there won't be any pesky tests, just some good, practical knowledge distilled from years of flying drones in the industry.

Over the 40 minutes of video content we’ll talk about: Basic regulations and the Open Category, how to conduct a pre/post flight inspection, battery management, bhe Return to Home function, how to use Drone Assist and Drone Safety Map to plan our flights, NOTAMs, airspace, contacting ATC and basic camera operation and settings to get you off automatic mode and using your sensor to its fullest potential.
