What is the A2 CofC?

The A2 CofC (A2 Certificate of Competency) is the UK’s leading drone pilot qualification. Approved the Civil Aviation Authority, this course enables pilots to get qualified and legally fly closer to both people and buildings.

Why do I need an A2 CofC?

To put it simply, without an A2 CofC new pilots will not be able to fly their drone in most places within the UK. This qualification enables new pilots to legally fly their drone closer to people and buildings – both recreationally and commercially.

Frequently Asked Questions

The iRed® A2 CofC course provides delegates with the technical and operational knowledge to safely operate a drone. This is especially important when flying close to people and buildings. As such, delegates will learn how to fly according to UK air law, avoiding potential risks. Approved by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority), the A2 CofC enables pilots to fly C2 Class Aircraft (Drones) within the Open Category.

The A2 CofC (Certificate of Competency) is valid for five years, after which it will need to be renewed.

Drone pilots who already have a PfCO (Permissions for Commercial Operations) that’s valid beyond November 2020 can still operate under their existing permissions. However, pilots wishing to continue flying under these conditions will need to re-validate their qualification by an RAE, such as iRed®, and change their qualification to a General Visual Line-of-Sight Certificate (GVC Course).
