A2 Certificate of Competency


Our 1-day, CAA accredited A2 Certificate of Competency (A2 CofC) which can be delivered both in-person and online is suitable for all levels of drone pilot, whether you’re a beginner or if you’re renewing your certificate.

Upon completion of the A2 CofC ground school, you will have an in-depth knowledge surrounding the fundamentals of safely operating a drone.

Training will culminate in a multiple choice examination. When passed successfully and paired with flight log evidence demonstrating at least 2 hours of flying competency, you will earn you your A2 CofC, allowing you to fly within the Open Category (low risk).

If you do not have the necessary 2 hours of flying competency, our A2 CofC course is also available with our additional ½ day flying bolt on, providing 2 hours of 1-2-1 structured flying tuition. This will be scheduled within 45 days of your completed theory exam. 

To book your ½ day flying bolt on, simply select it via the drop down when booking your A2 CofC.
