Advance your knowledge
Always wanted to be a pro drone pilot or learn new aerial surveying skills? Now’s your chance! At Sky Revolutions, we’re passionate about the future of the drone industry and love seeing new pilots develop their careers.
We currently deliver two courses:
- A two-day course that will enable you to become A2 CofC and GVC qualified
- A three-day Drone Aerial Imaging Masterclass for Mapping, Surveying and Photogrammetry.
Who should take part?
For our GVC and A2 CofC course: Drone lovers looking to get qualified and learn from a team of experts who use the same equipment day in, day out.
For our Surveying Masterclass: Existing commercial drone operators or surveyors who want to add to their skillset with aerial surveying, mapping and photogrammetry knowledge.
For both courses: Organisations looking to train individuals or teams. In this instance, we can run closed training sessions tailored to your sector. Get in touch to find out more.
What do you need to enrol?
- Have their own drone and insurance
- Have a registered Flyer ID and a CAA approved flight log of four hours minimum
- For our Surveying Masterclass, delegates must have their A2 CofC and/or GVC qualification (awarded by an RAE) and must have appropriate insurance in place.
Don’t have the above? Don’t worry, contact us and we will do our best to help.
Why train with us? We’re using drones in many sectors all day, every day. It’s what our business is built on. So rather than just educate you on the theory, we deliver training that is grounded in the reality of life as a commercial drone pilot – adding value to your knowledge and getting you ready for commercial operations faster than you might with other courses.
A2 CofC / GVC Course
Our A2 CofC/GVC courses take two days and are based at our Littleport office in Cambs. This is an in-person course made up of theory, discussion, practical flight assessment and an exam.
The training is provided by CDT (Commercial Drone Training) and is led by two of our most experienced instructors; both working in the sector every day.
In addition to the training, we offer assistance with your CAA online application as part of the GVC section of the course – completely free of charge.
Aerial Surveying Masterclass
This course is delivered in association with ARC Aerial Imaging and takes place at our Littleport offices in Cambs.
Having the right UAV and sensing capabilities is only the start of understanding how to deliver accurate geospatial datasets. This course will ensure you deliver informed, high quality data that’s fit for purpose. During this two day masterclass, you’ll learn how to:
- Define the desired deliverables and formats
- Use the appropriate data-collection platform and sensor
- Plan your acquisition mission, and collect, process and correct your data
- Extract valuable intelligence and insight.
Our accredited masterclass tutor has 30 years subject expertise and will guide you to apply your UAV platform and coupled sensing more effectively, efficiently and precisely. T&Cs can be downloaded here.
Our courses run from 9am until 4:30pm across two days in Littleport Cambs. Full joining instructions are issued at booking.
The current cost for the A2CofC / GVC course is £599 (including VAT).
