Reduced Distance PfCO Course


If you want to operate with reduced distance separation compared to what the standard Permission for Commercial Operations allows (less than 50m), then you have to submit an Operational Safety Case Volume 3 (commonly referred to as an OSC Volume 3). This is specified in the CAAs guidance (CAP 722).

This OSC is submitted in addition to Volumes 1 + 2 along with supporting evidence in an application to the CAA for a reduced distance PfCO.

The Uplift Drones OSC Volume 3 course contains expert guidance from our experienced consultants, gained from a legion of successful OSC Vol 3 applications. You will receive extra detail and instruction, above and beyond what is provided in CAP 722 on how to structure your OSC Volume 3 application to the CAA.

What’s Included in this Course:

  • An Introduction to the OSC Vol 3.
  • What to consider including in your documentation to support your application to the CAA for reduced distances.
  • Evidence to consider presenting to the CAA in your application.
  • Guidance on how to write the Vol 3 document.
  • Examples of risk assessing your operation (a copy and paste template is NOT provided).
  • Two part course including; 2-hour e-learning module and 1-day classroom course with an OSC experienced operator.
  • Additional expert guidance in comparison that featured in the CAP 722.

All our students are assigned a dedicated Uplift Instructor as their main point of contact throughout the OSC application process. This instructor will review Volume 3 of your Ops Manual and answer any queries you may have along the way.


OSC Volume 3


“Qualified operators will be well aware of the benefits of holding a PfCO from the CAA. The OSC Vol 3 or sometimes referred to as an “exemption” is the next step to gaining permissions that are above what the standard PfCO allows. These enhanced permissions may be operating closer to uninvolved persons or flying higher than the standard PfCO allows. Our OSC course gives an insight into how to write the documentation to support this application process and what evidence to submit to the CAA.” – Matthew Lee, Director of Uplift Drones

Uplift believes adherence to the principles laid out in the OSC Volume 3 course will significantly improve your chances of approval. This OSC Vol 3 guidance is now available at this excellent value price, in comparison to expensive consultant’s fees.


Terms & Conditions:

  • The OSC Volume 3 training course is not approved by the CAA. Note: the CAA do not grant approvals for OSC Volume 3 training courses.
  • Completion of the course does not grant a reduced distances permission or “OSC”. Nor does it guarantee approval when applying to the CAA, as the final decision for any permission rests with the CAA based on the evidence submitted. This course will provide expert guidance to give you the best chance of approval.
  • We recommend you have already held a PfCO for a significant period of time, with significant logged flying experience, before application for an OSC approval.
