Review Service for Initial / Renewal CAA PfCO Applications
The Standard Operations Manual Service is designed for both students approaching initial application and current PfCO holders coming up to their annual renewal.
For current students working towards their initial application, this service is included in all of our PfCO courses.
For those ready to renew your CAA PfCO, the task of updating your ops manual and organising your supporting documents can feel overwhelming. If you feel as though you’d benefit from assistance from a leading NQE training provider, then Uplift Drones’ Standard Operations Manual Service is the solution for you.
Whether you’re an existing Uplift Remote Pilot or you trained with another NQE, this service will help you get the results you want.
You can apply for your renewal up to 90 days prior to expiry without loss of validity of the original date.
We will provide you with a CAP 722 compliant operations manual template with content examples, that you will work through and modify for your intended commercial drone operations. Our instructors provide up to three reviews to make sure your operations manual meets the CAA standard.
The expected time input from the client/student is 2-4 hours and you will be fully familiar with all aspects of your operation and manual by completion.
You will also receive telephone and email support, plus you can easily access our training team via the online chat system.
Did you know, the CAA now charge an application rejection fee of £124.00, with one of the most common reasons for rejection being ops manuals that do not meet the required standard.
We are so confident that our Annual Review Service will lead to your application renewal being approved first time, that we will refund you £124.00 to cover the CAA fee should your application be rejected due to any errors relating to your drone operations manual, following our comprehensive review. Terms and Conditions apply.
Once your updated Operations Manual has been signed off by our training team, your PfCO renewal application can be made directly via the CAA’s online application system for Standard Permissions to operate unmanned aircraft systems:
The CAA’s renewal application fee is not included in this service. Please check the CAA Scheme of Charges (General Aviation) for confirmation of this cost.
