Membership FAQ

How do I become a Commercial Drone Pilot?

Uplift Drone Training Provides industry leading training courses to enable organisations and individuals to become commercial drone pilots. To fly drones commercially in the UK you need to obtain a PfCO or Permission for Commercial Operations, all Uplift Drone Training courses lead to the applicant obtaining the Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO).

How long are your PfCO courses?

We have three PfCO training courses depending on your experience; UDT Abbreviated (1 day), UDT Fast Track (2.5 days) and UDT Combined (3.5 days). All of these courses include the cost of your Flight Test.

What is involved in obtaining a Permission for Commercial Operations?

You have to complete 3 parts of the PfCO process. These include a ground course that ends in a Theory Exam, producing an Operations Manual and passing a Flight Test. Uplift Drone Training will help you every step of the way and provides support long after your course has been completed.
