We work in partnership with one of the leading drone training companies in the country to bring the ICARUS commercial drone training course to Scotland. The ICARUS course, held at the Dalziel Park Hotel in Motherwell every month, is one of the UK's leading drone pilot qualifications. Developed by ex-military aviators, it is the most comprehensive and relevant course on the market today.

Covering all the required subjects, plus additional modules not covered by most other NQEs, you will be among the safest operators in the industry and part of the ICARUS community. Further details about the ICARUS course can be found at
