The course has been extremely well designed
"The course has been extremely well designed and easy to follow. Having completed the PfCO back in 2011 it was a refreshing change that I took my time and understood each topic before moving on to the next rather than sitting in a classroom environment for three days."

Colin Bailie, via Trustpilot

A cut above the rest
"Knowledgable, approachable and supportive, the team at AV8 have made the learning process as smooth as possible. Always on hand to offer advice or support throughout my course, they have continued to offer added value as I move into commercial operations."

WhyGVC?

CAA APPROVED GENERAL VLOS CERTIFICATE (GVC)

TAKING THE STEP FROM ENTHUSIASTIC AMATEUR TO CERTIFIED DRONE OPERATOR MAKES THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLYING DRONES COMMERCIALLY AND FLYING DRONES PROFESSIONALLY

Unlocking the 3 key advantages of GVC Certification

Freedom. Commercial operators need to be able to fly anything, anywhere and everywhere. If you have a GVC, you'll be free to fly your drone with very few limitations, vs. uncertified pilots.

Credibility. 80% of the £42bn drone industry's value is only available to GVC certified pilots. Your clients will expect high standards of certification and capability, which means a GVC is a must-have.

Flexibility. Certification includes the A2 Certificate of Competence for simple tasks, as well as the GVC for the complex, giving you maximum operational flexibility and reach.
