Training for Pilots with a current PPL to achieve your Permission for Commercial Operation (from the CAA) in the UK  


What is the TOP UP COURSE?

For pilots with a current PPL, CPL, microlight or gliding qualification, military experience, or equivalent listed under CAP722 page 47 (check here), we offer a two day top up lesson instead of our full ICARUS course. There is no theory exam, but you will be required to provide an Operations Manual and perform an Operational Evaluation with your unmanned aircraft at a later date, like other ICARUS students.
