What is the OSC Training Course?

This specialist course is delivered online by Mr MPW himself (Matt Williams) and will walk you through the process of writing your CAA Operating Safety Case (OSC) which will allow you to get better permissions from the CAA.

You will be walked through all 3 volumes of the Operating Safety Case, using a real-life example of an OSC that was used in the UK to obtain permissions down to just 10m from persons not under your control!

In addition to walking you through all 3 volumes, Mr MPW also reveals the secret weapon to gaining better permissions from the CAA; the Bowtie XP Safety Management System (SMS), which is the preferred method for the UK Civil Aviation Authority, as used in the 'manned' aviation world.

FAQ

  • Has Mr MPW ever wrote and held an OSC?

    Absolutely! Unlike some of the other providers who are offering a 'Volume 3 OSC Course', Mr MPW has written and operated under OSC's all around the world, including our own OSC which allowed us to fly down to just 5 metres separation from persons not under our control, with aircraft weighing up to 25Kg! Mr MPW has consulted for a number of the UK's top OSC operators and helped to write the framework for the OSC procedure on behalf of the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA) in Bermuda which allowed himself and the team to fly the Alta 8 alongside full-sized helicopters during the America's Cup in 2017 , as well as operating in countries such a Peru and the Dominican Republic with our eBee's, under special permissions, out to as far as 7km BVLOS.

  • Does this course include a Template?

    Yes. The Mr MPW OSC Online Training Course includes templates for all 3 volumes of the OSC to help kickstart your own OSC. These go above and beyond the guidance laid out already in the CAP 722A.

  • Do you offer additional consulting?

    Yes. In addition to the course, Mr MPW can do one-to-one consulting on your own OSC document for an additional fee.

  • Who should do the OSC course?

    This online OSC course is designed for people who want to write an Operating Safety Case which will allow them to operate with reduced separation distances from people not under their control, than those granted currently with Standard Permissions (PfCO). The OSC can also be used to apply for permissions such as Extended Visual Line of Sight (EVLOS). We would highly recommend that you already have completed a PfCO course with an NQE or a General VLOS Certificate (GVC) course with an RAE before doing this course, and have some operating experience (ideally a minimum of 6-12 months), to improve your chances of making a successful Operating Safety Case application to the UK CAA.

  • Does this course and template guarantee I will get an OSC from the CAA?

    No. There is no guarantee that the CAA will grant you special permissions with your OSC. This course is designed to educate and inform you about how to write one and give you a VERY GOOD starting base to write your own. Mr MPW and UAVHUB accept no responsibility or liability should you use any of the materials provided within the course.

  • Is the cost for submitting an OSC in the price of the course?

    No. The submission of an OSC goes directly to the CAA and all fees associated with the application goes directly to them. We at UAVHUB have no part in the submission process.

  • Who submits the OSC to the CAA?

    You, as the applicant, submit the OSC to the CAA. UAVHUB have no part in the application process and can not guarantee that the CAA will approve your OSC application.

  • Do you check the OSC before submission to the CAA?

    As a standard part of the OSC course, no, we do not check your OSC before submission to the CAA. However, if you do wish to have your OSC checked over before submission to the CAA, we can do one-to-one consulting for an additional cost.
