Flight Tests suspended until further notice - Covid 19 Update

March 24, 2020

Last updated: 24th March 2020

 

Due to the addressment from the Prime Minister on 23rd March 2020 we are suspending all Flight Assessments until further notice. You will not be able to book in for a Flight Test until we receive further guidance from the government.

 

We at UAVHUB feel this is the right thing to do in light of the current situation.

 

We are contacting all students currently booked in within the next 3 weeks (starting 24th March 2020) to postpone their flight examinations until further notice.

 

For students who are booked in for a later date beyond 13th April we will be in touch within the next few weeks.

 

The below guidance is still in place for when Flight Assessments resume:

 

Instructors are not to greet clients using physical contact such as hand-shakes and are to maintain a 2-metre separation from clients at all times whilst conducting the examinations.

 

Instructors are not to help clients carry equipment, unlock aircraft, aid in the control of an aircraft or to handle the client 'paperwork' at any time.

 

The student will be requested to brief the examiner as normal and the assessment will continue as normal from there.

 

Planning paperwork will be requested to be sent digitally to courses@uavhub.com for the examiner to inspect when they have returned to their respected home.
