Practical Drone Flight Training offers new and existing drone pilots the opportunity to refine their flying abilities. This course is designed to make pilots capable of flying both safely and skillfully. As a result, it boosts the confidence of pilots who are preparing for their Practical Flight Assessment.

For instance, completing a flight test is mandatory for those seeking to obtain their Permissions for Commercial Operations (PfCO) or General VLOS Certificate (GVC). Therefore, it's crucial for pilots to possess the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully pass their practical exams.
