We are pioneers at a pivotal moment in history. In training, in technology and innovative capability that will change the way the world views and uses drones. We want a drone industry we can be proud of and our mission is to find like-minded individuals to join us on our journey.

We built our courseware the way we did because we want nobody to forget our message. We train our instructors the way we do because without that we can’t be better tomorrow than we are today.  We fly the meticulous way we do because we would never sell out our principles.”

"Just used FlyBy Technology's support service after gaining my PfCO to help with planning a tricky upcoming UAV job and have to say, not only did the team respond quickly but their support and assistance has been comprehensive. Spoke with Jon, who was friendly, extremely knowledgable and supportive in every way - a real confidence boost for me and encouraging to know the team are behind its clients 100% - couldn't ask for more!"
