    PfCO (NQE) to GVC Conversion Course

    If you already have an NQE Recommendation Certificate and you hold or are a Remote Pilot under a current PfCO, we have an option to convert your NQE Recommendation Certificate over to a General Visual Line of Sight Certificate.

    This will allow you to get an Operational Authorisation (OA) after 31st December 2020 with additional 'Bolt-ons'* such as EVLOS and BVLOS (when these become available).

    ***INCLUDES FREE A2 CofC Drone Course with the PfCO to GVC conversion worth £139***

    Simply select a date to take your Theory Examination and ensure you complete all of the pre-requisite E-Learning modules prior to attending your 1 Day Course.

    You'll then book your Theory examination online which is invigilated one-to-one with an examiner.

    All of our GVC on-demand E-Learning is taught by industry expert and UAVHUB CEO Matt Williams (Mr MPW) who will guide you through the learning process that will ultimately lead to you becoming a certified drone operator in the Specific Category.


    You need to hold or be a Remote Pilot under a current PfCO.

    You can take a Flight Examination at our Oxfordshire or North-Staffordshire Training Field and this will take up to 2 hours to complete. 

    Finally, you will get either an Operations Manual update to bring your OM up to the current standards, or, if you don't currently have an Operations Manual we will get you one produced by our trusted third party providers at Open Sky Consulting.
