Official entry into the PfCO (NQE recommendation) to the GVC Conversion Course has now ended.
Important Completion Deadline:
All participants must complete the conversion course by the 1st of December 2023.
Failure to do so will require you to pay for and complete a flight test to gain your GVC!
Ensure you're ahead of the curve and avoid additional costs and time.
We are still allowing entry into the course on an individual basis, upon approval from the UAVHub Training Team.
If you'd like to join the course and take advantage of the opportunity, we're allowing people to enter for the remainder of the month, on the proviso that you complete the FULL Theory Training and Theory Examination before the 1st of December 2023 AND provide all the required paperwork to the UAVHub Team BEFORE the 27th November 2023!
If you enter the course and are unable to complete it on time, you will have to take an additional flight test and you will be charged the difference between the purchase price of the Conversion Course and the cost of the full GVC Course at the time of 'upgrading'.
Why Enroll Now?
Last Chance: This is the final call for all those looking to convert their PfCO to GVC without the need for a flight test.
Avoid Additional Costs: By completing the course before the 1st of December 2023, you save on the additional costs and time associated with taking another practical flight test.
Stay Updated: The drone industry is rapidly evolving. Ensure you have the latest certification to operate with confidence and credibility.
Time is running out. Secure your spot in the PfCO to GVC Conversion Course today and stay ahead in the drone industry.

We recently hosted a LIVE Q&A Session, to answer the most frequently asked questions about the GVC Conversion Course... You can watch the replay HERE:
If you already have a current CAA OA (formerly PfCO) and an NQE Recommendation Certificate, this course offers an option to convert your NQE Recommendation Certificate over to a General Visual Line of Sight Certificate. This will allow you to continue operating under a PDRA01 Operational Authorisation (OA) issued by the CAA
Please note that if you DO NOT hold a current Operational Authorisation, you cannot complete this 'conversion' course. If you have let your original CAA Permissions 'lapse', then you must complete the full GVC Course. This is a CAA requirement and is, unfortunately, outside the control of UAVHub.
The GVC Conversion Course Includes the following:
Video-based E-Learning of GVC syllabus
Remote Online Theory Examination
Flight Examination Exemption (submission of evidence required)
Operations Manual Update to CAA PDRA-01 Standards
Award of General VLOS Certificate
Exemption from the Practical Flight Test:
To be exempt from the Flight Examination, you must meet specific criteria. If you are unable to submit evidence of the required criteria, you will be required to upgrade to the full GVC Course and pay the cost difference between your entry cost into the GVC Conversion Course and the full GVC Course, at the time of 'upgrading'.
How Does the GVC Conversion Course Work?
The UAVHub GVC Conversion Course is delivered through our industry-leading, on-demand, video-based learning system.
It includes attending all GVC modules as a refresher and sitting the same GVC theory exam as all full GVC Course candidates.
If you can provide evidence of:
2 hours of drone flying in the 3 months running up to the course;
8 hours flight time from the 12 months preceding your GVC theory exam AND;
A copy of your current OA from the CAA then you’re also exempt from the flight test element!
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you can’t provide these pieces of evidence, then you’ll need to take the full GVC Course & you won’t be able to ‘convert’.
