ABOUT US

The UK's First CAA-Approved Independent Commercial Drone Training School. 

 

 

Formed in 2015 Fly ICARUS training was born out of Aerial Motion Pictures; one of the first companies to start using drones for aerial film and television. 

The company is headed by Matt Williams, a former military helicopter pilot with thousands of manned flying hours. The rest of the team have been flying drones for years, clocking up hundreds of unmanned flying hours and becoming some of the best operators in the world.

Our unique experiences and skills have created the most trusted drone education in the UK and it is up there as one of the first and the best training school in the industry. The Fly ICARUS family cares deeply about its members and the aviation industry and anyone can pop in for a coffee or chat at their HQ near Oxford or give them a call (office is open Mon-Fri 9/5). 

 

We are dedicated to the evolution of the unmanned aviation industry through safety-centred education.
— Matt Williams, Managing Director of Fly ICARUS
