Commercial Drone Training - Determining the Business Benefits of Using Drones

Description
Should your organisation invest in drones or outsource? 
 
To operate a drone commercially in UK airspace you require a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO). To obtain
this you need to demonstrate to the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) that you are capable of operating a drone safely in
UK airspace.
 
This course provides you with the knowledge to evaluate and build a business case for investment in drones (due to the
vast cost savings available in using drone technology) or determine if it would be better to outsource the equipment
and operatives. This course also enables learners to understand the requirements of gaining the PfCO.
