The CAA General Visual Line of Sight Certificate (GVC) is a new drone qualification required for a commercial operational authorisation. This course enables UK drone pilots to operate within the Specific Category, allowing for commercial flights using drones above 2kg.
With our extensive online drone training course bundle, approved by the CAA, you can get your drone career started right away.
GVC is suited for professional drone pilots as it will allow you to:
- Fly drone between 2kg-25kg
- Fly within 50m of people
- Fly within 50m of buildings
- Fly in recreational areas
- Fly in congested areas
Is the GVC Necessary?
Having the GVC allows you to fly enterprise drones in the new Specific category – enabling you to operate with heavier payloads and equipment. GVC qualified pilots can fly enterprise drones as close as 50m from uninvolved people.
This CAA Approved certificate also opens up access to a wide range of new areas to fly – without it, pilots will not be able to operate within 150m of recreational, commercial, industrial or residential areas.

Our training sessions are mostly held near our head office in Emsworth, Hampshire (UK). For larger groups (4 delegates or more), we can offer training on your site, however this will be subject to external checks carried out by one of our instructors to ensure it is safe to operate.
Whether you are attending in-person or virtually, our instructors are always on hand to give additional support and one-to-one mentoring where required. If you would like to have a chat away from the group, then this can be done during break times or alternatively when the session finishes each day.
