About Uplift Drones

We Focus on Quality Training Delivered by Industry Experts

About Us

Uplift Drones was founded out of a passion for unmanned aircraft. We are a UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved National Qualified Entity (NQE) comprised of industry experts. Originally known as Uplift Drone Training, we had a refreshing re-brand in May 2018 to trade thereafter as Uplift Drones.

In this exciting and booming sector there are many opportunities; your training is your springboard into the sector, so make sure you choose an expert training provider who will provide excellent quality training and support you every step of the way.


The courses at Uplift are taught by current professional drone pilots and aviation experts; all of our training team have at least ten years’ experience in their respective area of expertise. Our training team includes ex-military drone operators, commercial airline pilots, fighter pilots, drone inspection experts and award-winning camera operators. They are all united in their enthusiasm for the modern solutions unmanned aircraft can provide. Remember, it’s important to ask your potential training provider – who will be teaching my course?


We provide you with continual support throughout the course and beyond, with dedicated phone and email support from our friendly team. Our constantly updated fleet allows you to take part in flight training using our DJI Phantom 4, DJI Inspire 2 or Matrice 600. This also allows you to make an informed decision before making an expensive drone purchase.

The experience at Uplift ensures that you learn from aviation professionals with years of experience, not newcomers to aviation. We will not just “coach” you just to pass a course, but provide you with the skills and experience required for advanced commercial operations. You can rest assured that we will help you become a safe, competent and knowledgeable commercial drone operator.


All courses will lead to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Permission for Commercial Operations. The CAA Permission for Commercial Operations is required to legally operate drones or Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) for paid work in the UK.
