Five Reasons to Choose Heliguy for your CAA Drone Training
Heliguy are a CAA approved NQE who offer nationwide training courses. Their course guides pilots through the process of obtaining a PfCO (Permission for Commercial Operation) from the CAA.
What’s Included in Heliguy’s Training?
Our course is split across three different sections:
Three Day Ground School – The theoretical section of the course that gives students the understanding of equipment used, safe aircraft operations and a variety of aviation knowledge. A theory exam is completed at the end of this section.
Operations Manual – The OSC (Operating Safety Case) details the operational procedures you need to follow as well as information pertinent to the business. We will guide and mentor students throughout the completion of their manual.
Drone Flight Test – This is the practical section of the course where student’s skills are assessed in control of the aircraft, testing in real-world scenarios and completing the required checks and notifications for a commercial operation.
Five Reasons to Choose Heliguy
At Heliguy, we pride ourselves on providing the best training to become a commercial operator. Our company ethos is to always keep our clients as the focus of our business.
Our trainees range from creatives looking to use their drones for photography and filming to engineers using aircraft for inspection and surveying. We also have strong ties with public sector organisations.
We have perfected each section of our syllabus to cover all the required sections for the PfCO, and much more. These have all been broken down into easily digestible subject areas that are communicated in plain English. Heliguy’s teaching technique is proactively updated following each individual training group to ensure all feedback is put into practice.
At the beginning of the Ground School, you will be given Heliguy’s Training Handbook, packed with information about your training. You’ll also be given a copy of a flight test guide. These documents are for your ongoing reference and development.
If you need any further assistance, our instructors will be available for any questions, the Sales Team are available for any new products and the Technical Team are available for troubleshooting, custom builds and repairs, all by phone, email or even face to face.
In addition to the above benefits, our syllabus includes additional areas that will make you a better pilot. A free of charge Night Permission document can be included within your training if requested. This usually would come at an additional cost but is included when training with Heliguy.
No Pressure Environment
We realise people learn at different speeds and in different ways. Therefore, if you’re unsuccessful in your theory or practical exam, we will let you resit as required without charging any additional fee. This aims to relieve the pressures of exams, increasing our first-time pass rate.
We guarantee that no hidden fees will be added at any time and you won’t be subject to any upselling. Our primary concern is to help you become a safe and skilled commercial operator. We can offer 0% interest packages for both training, equipment and service plans.
