Two of our staff have recently completed a two day drone pilot training course provided by Avaition Training Ltd.

The course was largely theory based, covering all aspects of piloting drones, as well as legal requirements and privacy considerations. This was followed by a practical Drone flying assessment which required them to prove actual flying competence by carrying out different scenarios in which aircraft control and safety was assessed.

It was noted that Davis Ogilvie’s current drone procedures and flying abilities were among the best.

The information learnt on this course provides us with further confidence that the drone procedures Davis Ogilvie has in place will ensure that our drone pilots are providing a safe service, protecting those in the air and on the ground.

As a competent Part 102 training competition certificate holder, we are now able to fly within 4km of an Aerodrome with prior approval from the controlling authority.
