Avios Flightschool – Beginner to Advanced Hands On Courses

Jet Pilot Learns sUAS

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly known as drones, are no longer limited to military applications, and the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) by hobbyists, law enforcement, and corporations is growing every day.

As the capabilities for these amazing machines continue to expand that translates into a critical, growing need for properly trained pilots.

Avios Aerial Media has pioneered techniques for automated flying and filmmaking that are featured in training courses around the world, including the world-famous Phantom Filmschool.

Whether you are flying for pleasure, to expand your photography options or commercially there are right and wrong ways to do it.

All trainers are FAA Certified under Part 107 as Commercial sUAS pilots and we provide hands-on coaching from the basics to advanced techniques for capturing amazing aerial video.
