Become a professional UAV & drone operator

If you plan on flying a UAV or drone in return for any commercial gain, whether payment or advertising, you require a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).


While training may be a legal requirement, we believe in teaching operators to be safe, competent and confident too.

The ICARUS course was developed by a former military helicopter pilot and is designed for anyone who wishes to fly drones commercially, including photographers & filmmakers, surveyors, estate agents, farmers and emergency services.

We were the first independent NQE and pride ourselves on being the best in the industry. Our course is the fastest growing in the UK, with over 500 operators passing in the last year.

We will take you through everything you need to know to earn your Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO), including all theory and practical assessments, as well as help you develop your Operations Manual and flight procedures.

Watch the video below to see Matt, the founder of ICARUS, tell you more about the course and why you should join the family.
