THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DRONE LICENCE IN THE UK
At DronePartners we believe in being clear and up front, avoiding jargon and too much marketing speak. In the UK there is no such thing as a Drone Licence it is a Permission for Commercial Operations, a PfCO. This permission can only be granted by the UK CAA – it is not granted by your training provider.
There is no such thing as a CAA approved drone training course. The CAA grants privileges to training providers as National Qualified Entities (NQEs). An NQE has to provide details of how they will operate their training to the CAA and this is audited before this status is granted.
Also the NQE approval only covers the activities regulated by the CAA, so this does not include add on training or flight coaching.
