Our new UAV training courses pack a serious punch!

The Great Circle is delighted to announce that the CAA have granted us official NQE (National Qualified Entity) status!

As a result, we are now offering Commercial UAS training courses for those that have an interest in setting up a UAV business (aerial photography/videography, surveying, 3D modelling etc).

This new dimension to our business is a joint venture between The Great Circle and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), the only one of its kind in the UK. Utilising our combined skill sets from the manned aviator world and the engineering might of the Universities new Aerospace department, we believe that our new courses are unrivalled, represent excellent value and provide a solid foundation on which to set up a new and exciting aviation business!

Our staff have worked extremely hard to design a course and qualification that is unmatched in industry. We have managed to achieve this by bringing together some brilliant minds! The team at The Great Circle include: Airline Pilots, Military Fast Jet Pilots, Flight Instructors, Professional UAS Operators, Qualified Teachers and Electronic Engineers with PhD qualifications who are actively involved in developing cutting edge technologies in Aviation.

On successful completion of the course, candidates will be awarded the UACE qualification (Unmanned Aviator Certificate of Expertise) and a recommendation made to the Civil Aviation Authority for grant of a Commercial Aerial Work Permit.
