    General Visual Line of Sight Certificate

    This is an entirely ONLINE based course (apart from the in-person Flight Test) as authorised by the CAA. 

    By completing this course, you'll be training for your CAA GVC (General Visual Line of Sight Certificate) so you can get your Operational Authorisation (the 'new' CAA PfCO) so you can fly your drones in the 'Specific Category'.

    'Permission for Commercial Operation' or an 'Operational Authorisation'?!

    You may have heard everyone talking about a 'Permission for Commercial Operation' or 'PfCO' over the last few years... This is the certificate you needed to get from the CAA to be allowed to fly your drone commercially.

    When the new drone regulations come into effect on the 1st Jan 2021, any professional drone operators who complete their GVC will be granted the NEW CAA 'Operational Authorisation' or 'OA', which replaces the PfCO and means you will be ready for the future and hold the best permissions you can as a Drone Operator in the UK!

    How does the course work?

    This is a completely unique, on-demand, video-based learning course which has been crafted to provide you with the same incredible learning journey we've become renowned for... But all from the comfort and safety of your own home!

    Our Fast-Track GVC Drone course 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!

    Is there a Flight Test?

    Yes! You will have to attend one of our Flight Test venues in either Staffordshire or Oxfordshire to do your Flight Test. All guidance for the Flight Test is provided as part of the GVC course so you know what to expect.

      A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC)

      Our NEW and IMPROVED CAA A2 C of C 'Fast-Track' Course allows you to become a Qualified Drone Pilot in less than 24 hours, all from the comfort and safety of your own home!

      Simply purchase the course to get immediate access to our market-leading video learning (about 5 hours of broadcast quality, on-demand video), take the mock exams we provide until you're happy and use our online booking system to book your Online Theory Examination with one of our remote invigilators.

      As soon as you've passed your Theory Exam, we'll send you your A2 C of C and you'll be good to go!

      What is the CAA A2 C of C Certification?

      The A2 C of C (A2 Certificate of Competency) is a new drone qualification that is being introduced from the 31st December 2020 to allow you to fly small drones 'close to people' and under the new regulations, you can operate a drone commercially for the first time without needing to spend ££££'s on training and CAA Permissions!

      The new A2 subcategory will allow you to ‘fly closer to people’ if you hold an A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) and are flying either a C2 class aircraft or if your drone weighs less than 2Kg; so it's the perfect qualification if you're flying drones like those in the DJI Mavic/Mavic 2 series and the Parrot Anafi.

      You'll need to do an A2 C of C Training Course and Theory Examination with a CAA Approved Drone Training school like UAVHub to be able to get your A2 Certificate and take advantage of the amazing opportunities this new system offers for Drone Pilots who fly small drones!

      What are the 5 SIMPLE steps to getting your A2 C of C with UAVHub?

      I've completed the 'on-demand video learning', how does the Online Examination work?

      When you have completed your 'on-demand video learning', you will be able to book in for your online A2 Theory Examination using a calendar system which is built-in to your Training Portal.

      Using this link, you will be able to book your online examination at a time to suit you and when we have examiners available. We aim to have examiners available Monday to Friday from 0900 to 2100 and in Dec 2020 will be introducing a service whereby you will be able to book an exam at ANY time and date to suit you, including weekends and holidays!

      We normally need a minimum of 24 hours notice from you booking to sitting your exam but this gives you time to complete the on-demand, video-based revision module and is a great opportunity to complete the mock examinations which we've included in your training, to make sure the Theory Examination is a breeze!

      When it comes to taking your examination, you will be required to show your examiner around your workspace using your webcam so they can ensure that you have no reading materials and notes to hand.

      The Examination is multiple-choice and it will be invigilated by an Examiner throughout.

      Please note; a Desktop or Laptop computer will be required to take the examination! You will not be able to take the examination using a tablet device such as an iPad and you will need to be able to move the camera so that the invigilator can see your entire room.

       

      Essential Equipment Required for Examination

      • Desktop or Laptop
      • Webcam
      • Microphone
      • Internet Connection with a minimum of 2Mbs speed

      So, what can I fly with my A2 C of C Certificate?

      With your A2 C of C, you'll be able to fly drones which weigh up to 4Kg.

      • 'Legacy' drones which don't carry a 'C2' marking on them (such as the DJI Mavic series, DJI Mavic 2 series, DJI Phantom Series and Parrot Anafi Series) can be flown under your A2 Certificate, provided they weigh less than 2Kg.
      • 'C2 Certified' drones (which carry an official 'C2 Stamp') can weigh up to 4Kg

      What can you do with 'Legacy’ Drones once you've got your A2 C of C?

      If your drone weighs between 250g and 2kg (like the DJI Mavic 2) then getting your A2 C of C will let you fly in built-up areas, so long as you stay 50 metres or more away from 'uninvolved people' (people who aren't aware that you're flying your drone and are nothing to do with you).

      You will be able to fly your 'legacy' drones under these permissions with an A2 C of C between 31st December 2020 and 1st January 2023.

      After this date, the rules change slightly and you will only be able to fly these aircraft outside built-up areas and you need to stay 150 metres or more away from uninvolved people.

      With the rate of technology advancement, it is anticipated that most people will have purchased a 'C2 Certified' drone by then which will be safer, more capable and can then be flown closer to people with your A2 certificate!

      What can you do with 'C2 Class' Drones once you've completed your A2 C of C?

      If you purchase a 'C2 Class Drone', when they come onto the market, you’ll be able to fly down to just 30m of uninvolved people, or down to 5m if the aircraft has been switched to a low-speed mode!

      This is set to open up a whole new world of opportunities for drone pilots who have their A2 C of C and a C2 class drone. Imagine; you'll be able to inspect roofs, take photos of houses and potentially film with your drone in town-centres! Something we could only have dreamed of being allowed to do with the BEST, SPECIAL permissions available from the CAA!
