AV8 Named Drone Training Specialist of the Year

Edinburgh, May 26th, 2021


In recognition of their innovative approach to drone training and their obsession towards their students' success, Scotland Prestige Awards have named AV8 Flight School as Drone Training Specialists of the Year, 2021/22.


Coming on the heels of the release of AiRSpace, AV8's new augmented reality mobile app, the award helps solidify the company's position as the leader in its field, delivering a new approach to aviation training though technology.


"I can't begin to describe how thrilled the team and I are to win this award. We've worked so hard to build the UK's first fully-virtualised aviation training company and it's a phenomenal honour to be recognised like this", said Jon Anderson, AV8's CEO.

Since its creation in 2019, AV8 has provided CAA approved, virtual drone training to both professional and recreational pilots alike. Employing a suite of in-house, integrated systems and processes, they've created a new standard for drone training that offers flexibility and accessibility to all.


Their courses are delivered via the most advanced eLearning platform in the industry, compatible with any PC, laptop or tablet with content, instructor support and exams all provided on an anytime, on-demand basis and integrated into a single system. The company has also created digital certification, allowing students to embed their formal CAA certificates into their mobile device.
