HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
"Thanks to AV8 Flight School I've secured a job working in drone delivery operations and I couldn't be happier! - Thanks so much for the amazing mentoring and support!
After doing my PFCO, GVC and A2 CoC with AV8, I approached AV8's CFI last month for 1-to-1 coaching to prepare for interviews with a BVLOS drone company.
With only a few days until the interview, Claw worked into the small hours of Monday morning with me making sure that I knew all the regulations, operational considerations and flight planning that needed to be done.
I had never picked up a drone before starting training with AV8 and now I am about to start on a new career doing BVLOS operations!
I can't even put into words how appreciative I am for the team at AV8, as well as an awesome course the instructors; have so much knowledge. I have absolutely felt supported the whole way!
Thanks so much AV8 Flight School."
"Within a month of doing the AV8 A2 course I’d made back enough to cover the cost of the course, a Mavic mini 2 fly more combo and insurance for six months. And this was just after Christmas in lockdown where filming work is rare. For the extra freedom and credibility it gives you £130-ish is an utter no brainer."
