    Product Details

    To be competent, confident and safe with a manned aircraft you need to be trained and certified on the model you are flying. This is just the same with an unmanned aircraft and why COPTRZ have worked with industry experts to create courses for the most commonly used commercial UAV’s.
    These online courses cover all aspects of the UAV’s mobilisation, set-up, operation, optimisation and maintenance in order to ensure operatives are proficient in all areas. These courses culminate with an online exam and are certified and endorsed by an accredited UK Qualification Body.
    Organisational contracts are available, where multiple stakeholders require training on either a one-off or subscription basis.
    The first tranche of courses are for
    • DJI Matrice 300 RTK
    • DJI Phantom 4 RTK
    • DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual
    • Flyability ELIOS 2
    Further courses are planned for Parrot Anafi USA and Wingtra among others and further enhances the COPTRZ Academy ecosystem.

OFQUAL Accredited drone training provider

It's globally recognised meaning your earning potential has just gone to the next level. It's also a quality stamp, it lets companies know that you're a serious pilot. No one outside the drone industry knows what a GVC or A2 CofC is, but they know what OFQUAL is. To win the contracts you need to speak in a language everyone understands.

Flight Test Locations across the UK

We have 11 flight test centres across the UK including Northern Ireland. That means you won't be travelling long distances to take a 1.5 hour long flight assessment (if required as part of your training).


Chief Drone Pilot Training

We want you to be a success, that's why we don't just stop at the GVC and A2 CofC. We provide a learning pathway that takes you all the way up to a Chief Drone Pilot. This is the best of the best, and we've got these 'Top Gun' pilots operating across the globe.

Finance Options Available

We have finance options to suit all budgets. You can put a part payment down on your training course, and then pay the rest just before you start. We will work with you all the way.

Graduate from the most prestigious Drone Training Academy in the UK

Think about it. Will Balfour Beatty or the BBC really hire someone who got their qualifications quick and easy. We've trained some of the best drone pilots in the world, trust us when we say it matters who you're trained by if you want to be successful.


Access Industry Expert Workshops

We don't just work with one drone brand, we work with the largest range the UK has to offer. They like to drop in on a regular basis to give you exclusive masterclasses and workshops on their drones and software - think DJI, Parrot, Flyability and Flir. There's a reason these Industry giants work with Coptrz.
