"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!"

“The information given was clear and easy to learn. More importantly it was relevant to Drones and interesting. The location of the course was impressive and gave a welcoming atmosphere. It really felt like I was joining the flying fraternity!”
“What a journey! Having booked Flyby Technology for my drone training I can now safely say it was 100% the right choice. From the very first phone call right through to passing my flight skill test (FST) yesterday it was fantastic. The course material, level of delivery and quality were excellent. Both Jon & Graham were a pleasure to train with and were able to teach a very technical subject in a way that you can understand quickly and efficiently. The course I chose was the 5 day course, which as it suggests is a course designed to get you through both ground school the FST and submission to the CAA for the PfCO. As long as you accept that this course requires you to work hard then you will be fine and will have loads of fun!”
“This is the best money I have spent. This course is the one to pick. The groundschool was well presented and the team helped me write an Operations Manual I could only have dreamed of. I even enjoyed the time spent with the examiner on the Flight Skills Test. Incredible course, by incredible people.”
