A short overview of our training

CAA Approved Drone Course / PfCO Course


Our Drone / PfCO Courses are approved by the U.K Civil Aviation Authority. You can find us listed on the CAA website on the National Qualified Entity page.

PfCO Courses currently at only £499


Our courses are currently £499 plus VAT. 

We are able to offer such competitive pricing as we are a company with small overheads, allowing us to provide great prices for you.

Buy cheap buy twice??


The U.K Civil Aviation Authority regulates NQEs like ourselves and approves the training we offer.

Therefore our training and standards are exactly the same as another NQE / Company providing PfCO training.

So you buy cheap but only once!

Course Structure


The PfCO Course is held over 2 days which are quite intensive. 

Day 1 is all about Drone Legislation and other key learning areas to ensure you can operate both Commercially and most importantly safely.

Day 2 is spent working on your Operations Manual where we offer guidance and assistance to you whilst you prepare this document. Once complete we then practice flight planning and lastly conduct a Practical Flight Assessment. We also test you against the procedures you stated in your Operations Manual

The PfCO Process


Come the conclusion of the course and you have been rated as competent we issue certificates.

These certificates are then submitted to the CAA when you apply for your PfCO. This is your proof that we have taught you and you have proved that you can operate safely, understand all the legislation and have written an Operations Manual to the required standard.

Concerns and Questions


There is only Andy and Scotty involved with Pigs Can Fly. We welcome any questions or concerns and would like to hear from you if you would like to take a PfCO Course with us. 

Likewise after you have completed a course with us, we are always here to provide support and guidance.
