Great place for drone training in Ireland. The amount of things I thought I knew about drones until I went on this course is unbelievable.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone as it was money well spent

Ricki Brennan, Webaria.ie
An excellent course by very skilled and knowledgeable instructors. I highly recommend this course.
Rob O'Hara, Teagasc

Mark is an exceptional tutor. He has that rare ability to communicate effectively and in a way that makes all the subjects very interesting. I have no hesitation in recommending Safe Drone.

Alan Golden, Golden Moments Aerial Photography, Waterford

Excellent course delivery. Mark is extremely knowledgeable and relays the information very well and takes time to explain thoroughly and in simple terms

Fergal McCarthy, E-Systems Ltd
Safe Drone were extremely professional through out the entire process. Mark’s experience was really evident, he was extremely patient and helpful during the ground school and in preparation for the pilot competency test. For an absolute beginner there is a lot of content in this course but Mark has separated it all brilliantly into manageable sections meaning I never felt overwhelmed.
Jarlath Finegan, Event Junkies
Really informative course and very well presented. Recommended for all potential drone users
Bruce Mattisson, Intel Ireland Ltd
Faultless! Excellent course. Well presented.
Eamonn Ballance, Irish Rail
the acid test for me was, ‘following the two day course, am I more interested in this area or less?’ and,of course,the answer is a resounding yes
Peter Ronan, Limerick Institute of Technology
Mark & Tad were very thorough in their lectures and at no point was it any trouble to further explain certain subjects.
All in all the guys are a fantastic team and the course is incredibly informative.
