Commercial UAV Academy (CUAVA)
Commercial UAV Academy (CUAVA) is a UAV ground and flight school that helps drone operators achieve the qualifications they need to operate professionally. Founded by experienced drone operators to provide well-trained, legally-compliant commercial pilots, it is a full National Qualified Entity (NQE) and is approved to run courses by the Civil Aviation Authority. (The CAA requires anyone wishing to operate a UAV for commercial gain to apply for Permission for Commercial Operations, PfCO). CUAVA instructors are also seasoned professional pilots, with a wealth of commercial experience both on the ground and in the air, to pass on to their students.
Curious PR manages the company’s social media and communications strategy. Our team secured expert interviews for the academy’s chief instructor, Alan Perrin, who was featured on a raft of national and international media platforms during the Gatwick Drone interference in December 2018, including LBC Radio and BBC World News, where he spoke at length about drone safety, and the future of UAV security.
