Drone Flying Workshops

An unmanned aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard. We use iPads during our sessions with options for manual flying and coding the drones to fly. Take a look at our Code-A-Drone workshops and Drone Racing activity to find out more.

Our Code-A-Drone workshops and extra curricular clubs are a great way for students to learn new computing skills. They take computing lessons to new heights, by utilising hands on, cutting edge aviation technology. Our sessions inspire students as they take part in this fun, creative and interactive group activity.

Corporate

Our Code-A-Drone activity is great fun for people of all ages and is a great way for adults to take on exciting challenges as part of a team. Using our drones, we have devised a range of activities that centre around problem solving which helps to promote team work, communication skills and planning techniques.

MakoCreate’s introduction to Drone Racing gives budding pilots the chance to take to the skies and race a real drone in a fun, creative and safe environment. During the session, each participant will learn how to manually pilot a mini-drone to take off, fly, turn, do stunts and land safely. They are then given a range of challenges that put these new free flying skills to the test. The final part of the activity will teach participants to race drones safely around a circuit that will challenge all of their new piloting skills. During the activity, each participant will be provided with all the relevant equipment and tuition. No previous drone flying experience is necessary.

So Much Fun!

“Racing the drones was really fun and the guys from Mako were great.”

Everybody Loved It

“I wasn’t expecting it to be so much fun! Everybody loved it.”
