Drone Training

At Drone Scotland, we have the skills, qualifications and experience to provide you with Drone Training. Our comprehensive ‘Introduction to DJI Drone Flying’ course will provide you with the necessary skills to be able to pilot your drone both safely and legally.

Drones are not toys and don’t generally survive crashes. In the wrong hands, Drones are capable of causing damage or injury. As the pilot, you are fully accountable for what you do with your drone. Fly it illegally or recklessly and you could either be faced by a hefty repair bill or even face prosecution. The government and police are stepping up their crackdown on illegal operators. At the same time, they want to encourage people to enjoy the freedom to fly and participate in hobbyist flying.

Drone Scotland has created a training course that aims to pass on our experience and expertise to others looking to enjoy flying their drone. Our course will help you understand where and when you can fly, what safety checks to implement, ‘common sense’ behaviours that a good pilot ought to always employ as well as some of the methods that the professionals use.

Our course incorporates the following:

  • A brief introduction to the Civil Aviation Authority regulations.
  • Health & Safety training
  • Pre-flight and post flight procedures
  • DJI Go 4/DJI Go app basic training
  • Useful 3rd party apps and tools
  • A demonstration of basic flight controls including take off/landing as well as use of the controller
  • Compass settings and calibration
  • An introduction to Drone Insurance
  • Emergency procedures including what to do if….
  • Using the camera for both photography and film
  • Telemetry
  • Battery management
  • Understanding the limitations of your drone and also of you, the pilot

The course is approximately 1 hour long and is accompanied by our documentation for you to take home.

All training will be conducted in Uddingston, Glasgow. Off site training can be conducted but needs to be agreed in advance.

Our course is available for just £60.00. Group training can be provided. Please contact us at office@dronescotland.com or on 07734 703 573 to book your session or to discuss group pricing.

Please note that this course is aimed at hobbyist pilots that are new to Drones or want to learn from a professional. This is an introductory class designed to help you avoid common mistakes, often made by new hobbyists, and help ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. This course is not designed for commercial pilots and does not enable you to fly for commercial gain. We do not allow unqualified person’s to fly our Drones.
