This 2 hour introductory course to flying a drone will have you up in the air in only 20 minutes without the cost of buying a drone yourself !
You will learn the basics of drone operation, how to take off and land, position the drone for the best photos and videos and navigate around different terrain.
You will be flying a dual control drone, so I will be able to both guide you and help you safely get the best out of your drone experience.
You'll soon be flying both next to and over beautiful Lake Wanaka or soaring over forests - always with a magnificent mountain backdrop. You are encouraged to take your own photos and/or video.
At the end of 2 hours, you will have the confidence and basic knowledge to fly a drone by yourself ! you may even be excited enough to buy your own or you may just be happy with the unique experience of being a first-time pilot.
Either way, you can learn at your own pace and time until you are ready to fly and make this a day to remember.

I have been a documentary cinematographer for over 40 years and a drone cameraman/pilot for 4 years. I love my work which has taken me to over 50 countries world-wide. In the last decade, the introduction of drones has opened up a whole new and exciting world of visual possibilities which I would love to share with you. I am lucky to live in one of the most beautiful parts of NZ surrounded by rivers, lakes and snow-capped mountains - think Hobbits and Lord of the Rings -what better place for you to have a hands-on experience of learning to fly a drone for the first time.
