Can anyone recommend good value for money courses in the UK to obtain the CAA qualification to fly a drone?

Hope this helps, this was taken from the CAA website of approved assessment organisations (NQEs) most of them vary from £950-£1500 but some do a finance option as well. I've heard good things about HeliGuy, their course is £1300-1500 but it looks good.

Appreciate this thread is a little while behind now but I've heard really good things about Heliguy's course.

It's local to me too so I'm thinking about signing up in the not too distant future.

I cannot comment on  the Heliguy course as I did mine through the UAV Academy. However, I have dealt with Heliguy and their service and support are second to none. I would guess that their course will refelct teh same values.

I've just spoken to Heliguyguys and booked on their course for a couple of week's time.


The sales guy I spoke to was really helpful and made a great first impression!
