June 2021 : Our instructor – Darren – was exceptional with his knowledge and how the on line training sessions were facilitated. Any questions raised outside of the sessions were promptly and clearly responded to. This ensured we were well prepared for the theory and practical examination. Ripper are highly recommended to anyone contemplating formal training in RPAS
