Training Testimonials

GVC Training 

Carys is not just a really impressive Drone Pilot, she’s a brilliant drone trainer. I conducted my practical training with Carys in 2021 and was impressed with her attention to detail and professionalism in regard to all aspects of drone flying - especially safety.  Carys made me feel at ease and instilled great confidence in me. I wish. I have never met anyone with such positivity, drive and passion for television production. Her enthusiasm is infectious and I know she really enjoys keeping up to date with technology, but most importantly sharing this knowledge with trainees.

David Edwards, Camera Operator. 

Post Training support 

“Carys’s knowledge and support throughout my training, exams and in the years since, has been invaluable. She has been there on the end of the phone when I’ve encountered tricky jobs, helping me with everything from risk assessments to advice on how to get permissions to fly & film in locations across the UK. I feel so lucky to have found Carys, because she is not only a fountain of knowledge relating to all things drone and camera, but also a great support in the industry. I can’t recommend her highly enough!” Rachel Airley, Surfr Media. 

Practical Flight training 

I’ve known Carys for a long time from when we both worked in Salford for the BBC. She gave me the confidence and clarity I needed to operate the drone in all circumstances and conditions. The course material was excellent, and Carys’ practical component was great - I really enjoyed the training, and once again the she was both an expert at flying drones and a great instructor.  Alex South - Senior producer and Camera operator
