Flight Assessment at Phoenix UAV Centre

Please ensure you are familiar with all current UK UAS legislation prior to arranging your Operational Flight Assessment. CAP 722 6th edition March 2015 covers most of this, and will lead you to relevant areas of the Air Navigation Order. Please look carefully at section 3.38 on page 42 as this summarises what the CAA requires us to cover in our Operational Assessment of your abilities.

The assessment itself will consist of a site survey and risk assessment, pre-flight checks, assessment of basic and operational flight, and post flight checks. Assessment of basic and operational flight will include failsafe, GPS and non-GPS assisted flight, flight at different altitudes and distances in all orientations

Assessments are available in both mornings (9am start) and afternoons (1pm start), and take approximately 2 hours with roughly 30 minutes of flight time.
