Heliguy ES-DOT

Our Emergency Services Drone Operators Training (ESDOT) course has been specifically designed to provide comprehensive yet succinct vocational training for such organisations as the Police, Fire & Rescue, Ambulance, Mountain Rescue, Coast Guard and is also suitable for control centre support staff involved in the deployment of UAS.

Any Remote Pilot operating an Unmanned Aircraft System for any of these organisations must operate under a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

In addition to the above, a further three establishments have been trained, however, their identities must remain confidential due to their strict requirements. 



About the Course

Our course can be adapted to suit the requirements of the organisation, from a condensed theoretical course to a more comprehensive course with practical flight training.  Candidates will benefit from one-to-one flight training with our experienced instructors to build competence and confidence with the procedures for their aircraft.  

An additional air law module is offered to ensure our candidates are fully prepared to use the CAA Exemption for Emergency Services (E4506) and its practical application. 

Our candidates will gain valuable exposure to the considerations and procedures that must be used to ensure safety when operating their aircraft in a manner that is outside the normal operating limits.


Can pilots operate immediately after completing the ES-DOT course?

At the conclusion of the course, candidates can attain the Remote Pilot Certificate of Competency in both theoretical knowledge and practical ability resulting in their immediate ability to commercially operate their aircraft under an existing permission.


Does this course include scenario training for emergency services?

If required, a final confirmation exercise based on a real-world scenario can be included. This is designed to assess the practical deployment of the aircraft; this can prove beneficial for evaluating the possible implementation of such aircraft and assure the chain-of-command in deploying such assets.


Where can this training be delivered?

We have the ability to deliver our course at any suitable location of your choice or at any one of our test facilities, therefore, lessening the inconvenience and effect on a work schedule. 


Who will be delivering this training?

Our instructors have extensive of experience not only in the UAS Industry but also have backgrounds within the Military Police and extensive instructional experience all of which bring years of real-world experience to the delivery of our course. 

Candidates will also benefit from the premium service support from all of the team at Heliguy. This includes our Sales Team for assistance with the purchase of and equipment and general queries, the Training Team for continued support with areas such as your Operations Manual, as well as our DJI authorised Technical Team for equipment repairs, technical queries and custom builds.

Ben Shirley
Former Royal Military Police Staff Sergeant
Heliguy UAS Training Instructor

“Having served over 13 years in the Military Police, I’m able to bring both my practical experience of ground policing and Incident Command and Control to the Emergency Service Drone Operator Training (ESDOT). This, coupled with my experience as a professional drone operator means that I can combine the two and inject real-world experience into the specific emergency services application of Unmanned Aircraft Systems.”

 

Emergency Services Drone Training FAQs

 

I have been tasked with establishing my organisations Drone Unit but I don’t plan on piloting the aircraft myself, should I attend the course?


Although it is advisable for any person who has command and control over pilots to attend the course, it is not a mandatory requirement.
It is, however, beneficial to gain a knowledge of the regulations applicable to the use of such aircraft, as well as a familiarity of the planning process and aircraft capability.
This is important when placed in charge of the assets and making decisions as to their deployment.

 

How many people do I need to necessitate a bespoke course?


Each course will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and we will provide a quotation upon request.
This will enable you to make an informed decision on whether a bespoke course is right for you.

 

What sort of facilities do you require if we want you to deliver a course at our location?


Ideally, we would require a room which can comfortably seat the number of students. We provide all course materials and our own presentation equipment.
For practical sessions, we would require an area to operate the aircraft in and we will fully assess this for suitability during our course planning.

 

We have yet to acquire any aircraft, can we still attend the course?


We teach the course in a manner which caters for both beginners through to intermediate operators, therefore, you are not required to hold any aircraft.
However, it is beneficial so that our instructors can ensure that our lessons are delivered with specific references to your chosen aircraft.
We are also able to supply a number of aircraft for practical sessions upon request.

 

Are there any pre-course requirements?


None whatsoever, we deliver all of the information required on the course which candidates require.

UAS Course

I was part of a large course run from Monday to Friday. The Heliguy team are brilliant at what they do.
The training was split between theory and practical work with assessments of each and the guys put in allot of effort to make sure everybody did well.
If you’re considering using them, I couldn’t recommend them enough. They are all really friendly and very good at what they do.

Buying my first drone, a Mavic Mini, from Heliguy was a delightful experience. From my initial enquiry through to dealing with some technical questions, their responses were always helpful and enthusiastically good humoured. I followed their advice and placed an order. Delivery was so fast I had the very carefully protected parcel in my hands in just a few minutes over 24 hours from ordering. Well done Heliguy - Impressive!

Having now completed my course I have to say that the support, material and learnings provided by the Heliguy team have been absolutely top notch. The course ended up being online due to the current issues in the UK, but the team were always available to answer questions and provide advice at all times, be it via email, telephone or online chat. At all times the whole team were polite, extremely helpful and extremely knowledgeable about all the issues/topics. I would recommend everyone interested in taking a drone flying course use Heliguy.

When I made the decision to buy my first drone I did some research on where to buy from and Heliguy came out top based on recommendations and price. I had some questions around my purchase and the process and decided email was the best way for me to ask. The response from Steve was quick and responsive. Not only did he answer my questions with all the necessary information he also provided more information and options for me to make the purchase easier. End result was, with very little effort myself, my new drone was ordered and on my doorstep as fast as I could want.
