What you'll do

Learn to fly a drone like a pro and capture your own footage in this private one to one experience. Your experience will be with professional PFCO qualified drone pilot, Rob, who will help you fly, film and shoot photos that you'll keep at the end of your day.

This experience takes place at the beautiful grounds of the Grange Hotel, where you'll be able to fly around the grand country house itself and beyond. It's a great chance for beginners to start their drone adventure and learn from an expert, but can equally be booked by seasoned drone pilots looking to expand their skills. Working with a DJI drone, you'll first learn some of the theory you'll need to fly, before getting up in the air and starting to experiment with flying and filming. Your experience can be completely adapted by Rob to suit your particular interests, from hands-on flying and understanding the DJI Go app to finding out about the route to becoming a commercial drone pilot.

You'll learn how to capture spectacular footage and will leave with the ability to film and photograph in a whole host of locations using your new skills.
