Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO UK)

CAA PfCO Course (Hong Kong School)

The course and certification is issued in Hong Kong by one of the CAA approved remote pilot assessment organisations (NQE) from the UK, is designed to demonstrate your competency as a UAV pilot, to enable you or your organisation to support any application for permission for commercial aerial work to the Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (HKCAD), or any national aviation authority, according to the rules of that country, if you so wish. 

The course is based on the CAA PfCO course, but has been tailored to reflect the small differences in Hong Kong laws as compared with the UK laws. As such certification will enable successful operators to demonstrate the necessary competencies to the HKCAD, however you may still be required to undergo a short flight assessment with HKCAD staff.

The PfCO qualification you gain on successful completion of the course is ICAO and JARUS fully compliant and does not expire, so it is life-long.  The certification can be attained by passing both a 2-day Ground School (theory) course, an Operations Manual (OM) review, and finally a Flight Operations Assessment (FOA). To encourage safe operation in this new industry the Ground School course is open to all those who are interested in the regulatory and operational environment for UAV/drones. Flight lessons are optional but highly encouraged and depend on the competency of the candidates. Training has been demonstrated to be the single greatest influence on flight safety.
