A drone being flown over the city

Cambridge UAV Academy will be holding another 2-day theory course in Central London.

Under UK Aviation Law, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) requires anyone wishing to pilot a drone for reward or commercial gain to apply for a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO).

The Cambridge Academy Proof of Competency (CAP-C) course is approved by the CAA and is required in order to apply for a Permission for Commercial Operations.

The CAP-C course entails two days in a classroom culminating in a theory examination, before producing an Operations Manual and taking a practical flight test.

Candidates will have demonstrated their understanding of the rules and regulations governing the commercial use of drones through the 2-day ground school.
