25/03/2020 All day

A residential course run by our partners, The Drone Pilot Academy, which provides the perfect starting point for companies or individuals who require a Permission for Commercial Operations CAA registration.  The initial theory element and exam is followed by a workshop on the completion of your Flight Operations Manual, developed with the assistance of the course tutor.

The DPA will proofread the Flight Operations Manual and when ready arrange the flight assessment. Upon successfully passing the flight assessment the DPA will collate the materials required and submit to the CAA your Flight Operations Manual for approval.

This course can be combined with any of the UAS courses run by KOREC.

For dates and venues please visit the DPA website:
