WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
“The course was absolutely fantastic, very informative but very relaxed. It was a lot to take in but it was communicated well and I feel like I got a lot out of it.”
“The instructors were insane, they were so supportive. The course is pretty easy as long as you’ve done some pre-research. Make sure you’ve done a bit of flying beforehand, I’d say 10 hours, as long as you do that you’ll pass!”
“The staff at Coptrz were really approachable and willing to answer any questions you have no matter how small, they were always on hand to deal with any enquiries we had. In terms of the flight assessment, it was very good as well, the instructor was extremely knowledgeable.”
