In a bold move designed to strategically position the company ahead of the 2019 / 2020 changes in UK drone legislation, AV8 Flight School has today announced a refreshed approach to the pricing of its innovate drone training courses; now the lowest anywhere in the UK.
The first element announced is geared toward creating a more consumer-friendly experience, by removing the traditional "plus-VAT / ex-VAT" indicators, often seen by customers as misleading and where students tend to only be interested in the total cost of the course. This greater transparency in pricing, with the actual price provided, is seen as key in helping potential students' in their choice of training providers.
The second part aims to improve access to certification; to do this, AV8 have created two versions of its virtual PfCO courses, catering to students with different learning preferences and requirements; Fast-Track, priced at £349.00 and Integrated, priced at £449.00.
Both versions include the same quality course material studied via AV8's unique Virtual Learning Environment, the ability to take exams remotely and on-demand, as well as an account with Flight Docs, AV8's proprietary automated system for operations manual and risk assessment creation.
The differences stem from the needs of the student. Fast-Track is aimed at students with some previous drone or aviation experience and who're comfortable with distance learning. The Integrated course has been created for students who want a greater degree of support, provided through AV8's unlimited, on-demand access to their instructing team, via video-call or phone.
"We predict a radical shift in the drone training market, as legislation changes to encompass both commercial and recreational users. Our business model has been designed to scale the quality of our courses through technology and automation to support both sets of students." Jon Anderson, CEO.
