SMS Training

Do you need SMS training? We have two SMS courses available.

Setting safety goals and objectives is one of the more challenging tasks in implementing safety management systems; our course can be delivered in-house to your senior management team, providing relevant training and guiding you through the development of draft objectives.

Root cause analysis is required for SMS, safety investigations, and quality investigations. Our course guides you through a structured approach to analysing the root cause of accidents and incidents.

UAV Pilot Training

UAV operations can be conducted under Part 101 or Part 102.  Various restrictions apply under Part 101, some of which can be lifted for an operator that is certificated under Part 102. A pilot certificate is useful for operations under Part 101, as that will enable operations within 4km of an aerodrome. CAA now requires a pilot certificate for operation under Part 102 and may also require an annual Operational Competency Assessment (OCA).

Do you have a current OCA and need a refresher course on UAS Aviation Law? We can help.

Are you not yet at the stage where you need all of the above, and just want to learn to fly your UAS? Our course in Basic Flight Training is just what you need.
