Right from the start with contacting and getting a quote from Candice to the brilliant practical training by the instructors the experience have not only been 5 star professional but very pleasant & satisfying. It has been clear to me that the staff at RPAS Training Academy not only takes pride in their work but has an authentic interest in their student/clients. A special thanks to the CFI, Jonothan for all the work and training during the practical training, you are a star.  

 I will highly recommend your training school to anybody in future.

RPAS Training Academy provided me with professional training in a friendly environment. Instructors and material are of very high quality and the focus is on ensuring that the student understands the concepts and knows the work well. Practical training is done in a supportive environment which leads to relatively quick attainment of flight skills. A good and professional academy.

RPAS TA really went out of their way to accommodate us, NamPower, to achieve our goal despite extreme time constraints as well as having to plan around rainy weather during the DFE test.
