GVC Transition

The GVC Transition is specifically aimed at individuals who are already operating under the legacy PFCO, or those who have completed a certificate of pilot competency with a legacy NQE prior to December 2020 and who need to requalify under the new General VLOS Certificate to remain current and/or to apply for a new Operational Authorisation.

On completion of this course you will be awarded a General VLOS Certificate.

The course comprises of:

  • 9 Online Learning Modules
  • An Online Theory Exam (invigilated by a member of the RUAS Training Academy team remotely)
  • *A Practical Flight Assessment
  • (*if required – please contact RUAS Training Academy for further details)

There is a requirement that all PfCO holders will be required to transition to the new Operational Authorisation and all pilots working under this Operational Authorisation must hold a General VLOS Certificate by January 2024 in order to operate a <25kg drone in an urban environment.
