DJI M300 RTK

If you’re in service at the moment and are due to receive your re-settlement package then did you know you can use your ELCAS credits towards training as a drone operator. The job opportunities in the drone sector are growing every year with an estimated 76,000 drone operators in the UK by 2030 (according to PwC Report).

COPTRZ are the first and only drone Training Provider to attain ELCAS Approved Learning Provider status, which means we can offer you Level 4 and Level 5 Commercial Drone Pilot Awards.

We are proud to offer our ex-servicemen and women the very best and most cost-effective pathway to becoming a commercial drone operator.

Meet Pete Taylor

UAV Strategist
Pete served in the army from the age of 18 originally joining as an ammunition technician in the RLC before being selected from the ranks to attend Sandhurst and become an officer. Unfortunately, due to an incident during duty, Pete was medically discharged before he could attend Sandhurst. Pete still has very strong links with the military and supports numerous veteran charities. Pete joined Coptrz in 2020 and is proud to be able to support ex-servicemen and women looking for a rewarding career after servicing in the military.

 

“I believe there are skills which you learn in the military which are really transferable to working in the drone sector; disciple, hard work, honesty and integrity. We are finding a lot of ex-servicemen and women choosing drones as their next career step because of the excitement, flexibility and diversity of working in the sector. Whether you want to work for yourself or you’d like to work as an internal drone operator for an established business, the opportunities are endless”. Peter Taylor
