BVLOS Training

A lot of people dream of becoming a pilot, but you can become one!

BVLOS FLIGHT TRAINING SCHOOL

The Worlds first BVLOS Training Course is here! You are invited to spend a month at our flight training school where you will learn everything you’ll need to advance to the BVLOS level of drone flight and become a Pilot!

Whether you are a complete beginner, or have flying experience; if you like the idea of learning how to fly a drone in Scotland whilst sitting at the ground station in Leicester, then this opportunity is definitely for you!

We’re the only people offering a BVLOS training course, where you’ll attend flight school with top instructors, be supplied with a pilot uniform and gain your pilot wings.

"The thing about Flyby that really stood out, is not only are they military pilots, they are all instructors at a very senior level from the Central Flying School. They taught the guys, who taught the guys that are the best pilots in the world. It’s the place to go.”

TRAINING STANDARDS

Any pilot who conducts BVLOS missions, either in the Specific or Certified categories, will need to be trained to the highest of standards. This is no place for amateurs. Flyby Technology is the company leading the World in BVLOS practical training. This is the real deal, a flight training school experience. At the end of our course, you will understand the human factors associated with remote operations, you will have undergone extensive technical and simulator training and will have flown REAL BVLOS missions, in the rotary and Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) genres.

BVLOS COURSE STRUCTURE

Our BVLOS course runs along the same lines as the pilot training for the airlines. You will be issued with your Flyby Pilot uniform and attend our facility in Leicestershire every day for 4 weeks.

The course will be classroom based for the first 2 weeks; studying the regulations, technical solutions and human factors challenges of BVLOS drone flying. The course then moves into the simulator phase where we build your skills and confidence before migrating to a mixed phase of simulation and live flying of large VTOL aircraft.

At the end of the course, we have a graduation ceremony where you are awarded your wings and certificates. There is a prize for the best pilot on the course. The Graham Cotton Trophy.

OUR PILOT INSTRUCTORS

Our cadre of instructors are specifically experts at training pilots, so we know how to adapt your personal training journey so that your retention is at 100% and you pass with flying colours. You’ll be welcomed in to the Flyby Family, where we will do everything in our power to help you excel in the exciting drone industry. As part of our family, you will gain the status and respect that a Flyby Pilot demands.

ONGOING SUPPORT

You’re not on your own. You will be assigned a personal mentor that you will be able to approach throughout the early years of your career for advice. This is a priceless benefit to training with Flyby. If an appropriate contract comes up we will recruit from our alumni only, and our standards mean other companies will want Flyby Pilots too.

We have the power to catapult you to join the very first, pioneering group of commercial BVLOS pilots in the World.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

BVLOS Pilot training costs £10,000 + VAT which is an amazing investment for a new career in aviation. We offer payment plans, please just ask for details. We are not an elitist establishment, we have kept the training costs to a minimum (Did you know it can cost in excess of £100,000 to train as a manned aviation pilot?) as we want this opportunity to be accessible to as many of you as possible.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The flight school is every week day for 4 weeks in our facility at Leicestershire, UK. We can’t think of any other training on this level that doesn’t take years! It’s an incredible opportunity for an exciting new career.

AMAZING OFFERS

We’re offering a free GVC course when you sign up to our BVLOS course! The GVC is the first building block in the journey to becoming a BVLOS pilot. This usually costs £999 + VAT. If you already have your PFCO or GVC with Flyby, we’ll deduct this from your BVLOS course fees.

GUARANTEE

If you do not make the grade you will get a full, no quibble money back guarantee.

COVID COMPLIANT

Our groundschool is fully COVID compliant, which also means that cadet places are limited. So if you want to be one of the first, pioneering BVLOS pilots, you’ll need to be added to the waiting list sooner rather than later.

HOW DO I APPLY?

All you need to do is click on the button below to register your interest and fill in the simple form. Then our head of BVLOS will be in touch to discuss the position and make sure this is the right training for you. We need to know you are seriously committed, hence the initial conversation to make sure you fully understand the opportunities and the commitment involved.

STILL NOT SURE?

Sign up for our open day for recruits. We’ll show you round our facility, you’ll meet our instructors and get a demo of our aircraft in action and you might even get to fly it! Chat to BVLOS pilots about their experience and ask any questions you may have. Lunch is provided. The open day costs £200, but you’ll get your money back if you sign up for the course.

Only available outside of COVID restrictions. Please email us hello@flybydrones.co.uk for availability.
