The GVC or General Visual Line of Sight Certificate is required for any drone pilot wishing to apply for an operational authorisation from the CAA to operate within the Specific Category.

With every successful GVC course we offer a FREE A2 CofC.


The PfCO to GVC conversion is for drone pilots trained under the old NQE and holding a PfCO.

Those pilots need to have converted to the new GVC qualification by the 1st January 2024 after that those drone pilots will not be able to renew and operate in the specific category without re training.
