Jordi Santacana, in addition to being the best pilot in the world, is a simple and warm person. Professors Albert and Marc are great professionals who have helped me learn all the concepts of the course in an excellent way. And the instructor-student relationship has been unbeatable. It is noticeable that they are experts. I completely recommend BCN Drone Center, it is the best center to learn to fly.
I just finished the RPA pilot course and I’m sure I couldn’t have gone to a better place, a team of great professionals and enthusiastic communicators who have a passion for their work, excellent facilities located just one hour from Barcelona in a unique environment and full of material in perfect condition. 100% Recommended Thank you so much !

If you want to learn about drone technology theory and practical aspects BCN has all you need. Segregated air space and classroom facilities are great, well selected speakers that transmit ideas about how to setup your drone on all aspects needed, aeronautical as well as payload requirements for various applications. The food is so good...
Lead GIS Analyst at Tullow Oil
It is a place where knowledge and skills are fused to model one to a competent pilot and an operator of drones. With highly endowed instructors, and lots of training hours both on the simulator and practically flying one is all that is required to transform any enthusiastic drone pilot to an excellent one. A true pioneer of UAS and champion for its future

Very good job from the instructors involved . You can easily see that they like their job and make the students enjoy it! Hope to come back soon!
So smart and intense the UAV Remote Sensing Application 1-week session, exploring the whole innovative UAV channel from the flight and imagery acquisition to various applications. The BCN team (and speakers) is very professional and enthusiastic, and their Catalunya green site is really inspiring.

Great course! Excellent instructors. Most of the course is practical which makes it more fun.
Senior Remote Sensing Technician at RCMRD
This course helped me appreciate drone technology much more. I interacted with users of drones from all around the world and was fascinated by the amount of work people have put in using drones for aerial mapping, cargo delivery and many robotic applications for the benefit of humanity.
It was a meaningful experience in a new city.I think I'd like to take another course next time.Thank you.
United States of America
The course was well worth my time. It provided a great opportunity to learn about modern UAV system design and operation; UAVs are much more than R/C aircraft and deserve special consideration. Considerable time was allocated each day to flying aircraft on the simulator and flying a small UAV on site.
