Sky-Futures is rolling out a Basic Drone Certification Course; the new course will enable persons and organizations in the UK to reach the basic standard required to operate drones under a CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO). For the past two years, Sky-Futures has established a reputation for safe, high quality and fit-for-purpose drone training, having trained Emergency Service and Enterprise clients in the safe use of drone technology at its state of the art facilities in the UK.

In the UK, Sky-Futures holds full Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) National Qualified Entity (NQE) status. Under these privileges, Sky-Futures will provide an all new online ground school syllabus followed up with a drone flight skills assessment at the Sky-Futures Training Academy (SFTA) and full access to Sky-Futures Operations Manual Templates.

This applied certification course has been borne out of Sky-Futures established training business and in response to client demand; it will enable persons or organizations wishing to fly drones to lay the best possible foundations for the safe use of this technology. Coupled with the facilities on offer at the SFTA, the new course provides class leading certification to the fast-growing commercial drone industry.

Nick Rogers, Sky-Futures Co-Founder and Chief Regulatory and Training Officer says, “Sky-Futures has an established drone training business in the UK delivering best in class training. Given the now embedded nature of drone regulations in the UK, our new Basic Drone Certification Course is a natural addition to the Sky-Futures Training Academy product range.”

With the launch of  the Basic Drone Certification, Sky-Futures is bringing to market a product that will ensure the best possible start for a business to enact its drone strategy. Upon certification, this will enable operators across the UK to leverage drone technology confidently and safely, in accordance with CAA regulations.
