FREE A2 Certificate of Competency with your My Drone Pilot subscription – 07/12/2020
We have partnered with UAV Academy to bring you the ultimate bundle for becoming a certified drone pilot. Subscribe to My Drone Pilot and get your free of charge CAA approved A2 Certificate of Competency, normally worth £249.
If you are wondering why you would need the A2 CofC, here are a few reasons. Although it is completely new, the A2 CofC will become a highly important qualification for any hobby or commercial drone pilot, starting from the 31st of December 2020. From this date onwards, the certificate will give you permission to fly within the A2 Open Sub-Category with certain drones.
What does the A2 Open Sub-Category mean? This category allows a pilot to ‘fly closer to people’, provided the pilot holds an A2 CofC and flies either a C2 class drone, which is not available as of yet, or a drone weighing no more than 2kg. Being allowed to fly closer to people will grant access to built-up areas as long as the required distance measures are respected.
The A2 CofC course is CAA approved and will be valid for 5 years from the date of issue. UAV Academy offers its students flexibility with the courses, allowing you to complete it online, at your own pace. Moreover, each course comes with quizzes for each individual module, and an Online Learning feature that will cover the complete syllabus.
There is no requirement for a flight assessment or an operations manual, however, a practical flight training period will have to be completed, either by self-training or with the aid of a UAV Academy instructor.
If you are a hobbyist drone pilot, a commercial pilot, or thinking of becoming one, why not take advantage of our offer and get your A2 CofC for free? Get your My Drone Pilot subscription and enjoy all the amazing benefits this certificate will bring you.
