Why HALO Drones is different to the many Commercial Drone Training companies...
Excellence is at the core of HALO’s values and everyone involved in the company aspires to give their best. We have strict standards and you can see our policies on Health and Safety and Quality at the bottom of this page. As a result, we truly believe our range of drone training courses and operational services are industry leading. If we didn’t believe this, we wouldn’t put in the effort to create them in the first place. To back this up we are willing to guarantee any of our services with a 100% refund if you are not satisfied with our services and we cannot resolve your complaint, subject to our terms and conditions.
We focus on Safety first; by striving for excellence and developing the highest standards of competency, and managing the continued development of our pilots, we ensure HALO operators are regarded as the best in the industry.
We want to enable Accessibility to drones for all; by optimising the supply chain so that end users can quickly and easily procure the best value drone service and or data.
We want to ensure drones offer true Value; by exploiting HALO’s in-house expertise to constantly research and develop new technology and techniques to capture data, and distribute this knowledge through our training courses.
Training and Services
HALO’s primary focus is on creating the very best training courses we can. In order to achieve this our small team of expert pilots deliver services with drones on a daily basis. This enables them to remain current with operating the latest equipment for emerging applications and they inform the continual development of our training courses. In addition to our training course, we can also provide a range of services to support our customers along their journey of incorporating drones into their business. For example, our consultancy services can help raise awareness of considerations for utilising drones effectively and be used to establish an implementation plan. HALO can then provide outsourced drone services to help establish a minimum viable product, quickly while minimising the need for any investment. Once the value of the service has been proven, HALO can provide training to allow a company to establish a minimal in-house competency. In the future, during peak times of data capture HALO can be also engaged to provide outsourced drone services.
Expertise and Experience
All of our instructors and pilots are commercial drone pilots first and foremost. We do not come from a background in manned aviation and we see this is a massive benefit. It enables us to empathise with the majority of customers who tend not to come with any previous experience of aviation either. This means we are able to speak a common language and create training courses that focus on relevant, non technical information that is more accessible for the majority of new users. This helps our customers establish themselves quickly and differentiate themselves from competitors.
- Our pilots have a combined experience that exceeds thousands of logged operating hours
- Our instructors and assessors have previous work experience with several other drone training schools, having delivered over 60 courses totalling more than 1,000 candidates
Ethics and Authenticity
We care about how we do business and encourage everyone involved with HALO to always do the right thing (Ethical) and be true to themselves (Authentic); ultimately we judge this by always ensuring HALO’s activities have a positive impact on the environment, society, its employee’s, and customers.
We only want to do business with individuals and companies who share our values and vision. We are also very conscious of being accurate with how we market our services so that customers can be sure of what they are purchasing. We are considerate that is tricky for customers to quantify any form of claim that states we provide the best services, even if we believe it to be true.
Everyone in HALO Drones shares a passion for what drone technology can bring to society, and it is this passion that drives us to be the best we can be. You can be assured that you will reap the benefits of this attitude when you engage with our services and personable team members. We are putting the care back into customer care!

I was always put off by the idea of having to complete the operations manual as it looked like an awful lot of work. To my surprise the way that HALO had assembled the documents and the instructions, not only made it straight forward but it was an enjoyable process. It enabled me to reassess my understanding of the regulations and think about how I’d like to conduct my drone services so that to fit within my businesses pre-existing policies. Great work HALO!

We were really pleased to have Phil from Halo take the reins for a recent drone shoot for a corporate client. As a result, the shoot went smoothly and the client was delighted with both the footage and the process involved in getting it. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Halo’s services if you are require aerial imaging.”

It was great standing in Kensington Gardens at 5am with Phil and Adam from Halo, completing our drone shoot of the Serpentine Pavilion. Even with the strict filming restrictions we had, the results are amazing and we are very happy with the footage. Two thumbs up!

Working with Phil recently on the Blue Chip All Stars programme for Sky tv was a pleasure. Phil’s total professionalism in planning and flying the Drone shone throughout the shoot, the client was absolutely delighted with the results of the filming
David Sully, Red Kite Video
Phil was very professional in his preparation and flying, often in very testing wind conditions. He came up with a very clear flight plan and was supportive in suggesting how the areas should be photographed. The results were exceptional. Very highly recommended.
