Colena Ltd t/a Heliguy

Heliguy is an experienced and trusted CAA-approved NQE and delivers a range of courses, including the Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO), Emergency Services Drone Operators Training (ES-DOT) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Over the last four years, we have taught drone pilots from major names across a range of industries including Balfour Beatty, BBC Natural History Unit, Sellafield Sites, Manchester City FC, and Caterpillar, as well as major UK police forces and other critical government enterprise.

Based at stunning venues around the UK, Heliguy's comprehensive three-day PfCO training (Ground School) is more than a course and a certificate - it is about an experience, giving you the chance to train in a dynamic group environment, ask questions and receive valuable on-demand guidance and support, take advantage of unique networking opportunities, gain valuable industry insights from the professionals, and access our large inventory of rental equipment.  

The most daunting part of the PfCO process was often formulating an Operations Manual at home, post Ground School. However, after developing a tried and tested approach, candidates sitting Heliguy’s PfCO Course are able to complete this vital document as part of the Ground School and under our guidance. Our new streamlined approach will shave many hours off the once time-consuming and complex process.

As a PfCO training leader, Heliguy implemented functional testing with a check system for minor and major faults in various categories. This guarantees an open and transparent examination process during your flight assessment, gives you vital insights about your flying skills and ensures you are operating at the required standard. Our bespoke flight assessment is tailored to your desired commercial operation, allowing you to hone your skills specifically for the industry you are serving.
After the culmination of the Heliguy course, our experienced NQE training team will be on hand to give you help and advise whenever you need it, either by phone, email or during one of our regular Ground School sessions.

The cost of the Heligy PfCO course includes Ground School, retrospective flight assessment, unlimited post Ground School support, expert consultancy and free module re-sits.

Heliguy is one of DJI's largest and trusted European channel suppliers and is recognised as a Gold Partner, certifying our expert knowledge and services to interested enterprise customers. We recently won a Top 10 Partner of the Year (Europe) award from DJI Enterprise.

We are the UK's largest and most-established one-stop-shop drone provider, including a DJI-accredited repair centre and R&D lab. We are accredited by the CAA, Achilles, CPD and Cyber Essentials and are ISO 9001 rated.
