Advanced Pilot Certificate (Part 102)
Duration: 3 Days
If you have been flying within the 101 framework and now need to operate outside some of those rules then the advanced pilot certificate is for you.
This is a blended course run over three days. Day one is the Basic Pilot Training Course (above), Day two is theory, Practical flying and Scenario Based Learning and day three is more flying, exam and flight test. If you have completed the Basic Pilot Certificate then you will only attend the second and third day. We can also offer Recognition of Prior Learning for some pilot qualifications. Call us to discuss.
This course teaches pilots how to operate legally with some documented and accepted variations to Rule 101 that you and the CAA have agreed on.
You will learn how to operate within the 102 environment which varies from other course providers that just teach you about the rules. We pride ourselves on delivering industry ready pilots though our scenario based learning programme and Part 102 Preparation module. Building on Part 101 knowledge you will learn about:
Threat and error management
Human factors that effect safety
Situational awareness and airmanship
Pilot Currency programmes
Rapid Risk Assessments
Aviation weather that effects drone safety
Advanced aviation documentation for flights around airports
Using Part 102 variations and how they work
Setting up Standard Operating Procedures
Systems Architecture and limitations
Safe operations of your RPAS in practical training
Achieving successful outcomes in hazardous environments
At the end of this course you will also sit a quiz and your first Operational Competency Demonstration (OCA). On successful completion you will be issued with an Advanced Pilot Certificate which enables you to work on a CAA issued Part 102 Certificate.
It its also important to understand that an Advanced Pilot Certificate can only be used if you are flying on a CAA approved Unmanned Air Operators Certificate (UAOC). If you are not joining an existing Part 102 you must also apply for a Unmanned Air Operators Certificate of your own. We can help you with that and have done so with a fair chunk of the existing Part 102 with our Exposition and Consultancy Service.
Not only will you train with us but we will teach you how to maximize the variations that we craft for you building on nearly 20 years in the aviation industry
