DroneOps Training

DroneOps have a holistic approach to training you best practice. We undertake classroom delivery but much prefer to be out on site showing you how to plan and manage flight plans in a safe and proficient manner.

CAA Permission

In order to fly SUAS commercially you need to gain a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). A completed operations manual and evidence of pilot competency must be achieved by attending a course run by a National Qualified Entities (NQE). The flight test is fairly basic and effectively looks at your mission planning, preflight inspections, maintaining visual line of sight (VLOS), conduct a return to home shut down and log the flight. The NQE courses do not teach you how to fly and DroneOps can work with you and/or your team to learn best practice and get your skills up to a very good standard.
  • Spend time practicing and get organised.
  • Perfect your due diligence and pre-flight tests.
  • Operating in congested areas requires a greater safety case .

Human Factors

In our experience it’s the human element that causes more crashes rather than the mechanical element. Incorporating Human Factors and Human Behaviour analysis in the design process of SUAS reduces the likelihood of operator error or injury, and thereby increases overall productivity and safety. We can provide Human Factors consultancy and training for all levels of personnel within the organisation. Our experts are highly qualified in the field with a commitment to quality. They have a proven record of providing services to industrial sectors including defence, manufacturing, rail and the emergency services.
We offer the full range of Human Factors services, including:
  • Task / Needs Analysis .
  • Human Error analysis and mitigation.
  • Ergonomic and process design.
  • Climate, Physical and mental workload.
  • Expert witness services to personal injury cases.
