To operate a drone commercially in the UK you need to gain a Permission for Commercial Operations from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The COPTRZ CAA Drone Training Modular course will give you everything you need to apply for your Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the CAA. (otherwise known as a drone licence), but with the added flexibility of being able to take the 3 different modules at the time of your choosing.


The first two days of the COPTRZ CAA Drone Training Course will cover your theory learning and theory assessment. Your trainer will take you through the full 8 modules required by the CAA, after which you will complete a multiple choice examination.

  • UAS Airspace Operating Principles
  • Airmanship & Aviation Safety
  • Air Law & Responsibilities
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation Charts
  • Human Factors
  • Aircraft Knowledge
  • Operating Procedures


The second module of the course covers everything you need to do to plan for a live job. It will also offer you an insight into getting your commercial drone business off the ground. Your trainer will walk you through the process of completing pre-flight planning, safe setup and site surveying. They will also talk you through the flight assessment process.


The third module of the course is your flight assessment. Here you’ll be assessed by performing a series of manoeuvres with your drone in a safe and controlled manner. You will also be asked a selection of Qs related to your drone.
