Want To Fly Drones For A Living in 2019?

Whether you want to add aerial capabilities to your existing arsenal of work skills, or are just looking for a new career path, then become a CASA certified remote pilot through one of our drone licence training courses that will cover you for the new legislation changes coming in next year. Aerial photography using drones is more popular than ever, but many industries are turning to remotely piloted aircraft to save time and money, reduce risks and perform tasks that were impossible less than a decade ago.

RePL Courses as per the new Part101 MoS, and Drone Rego / Accreditation

With a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and operating under an ReOC, you are able to fly drones up to 25kg, and obtain permissions and exemptions from the restrictive Standard Operating Conditions, when required.  The new Part101 MoS (expected Dec 2018) integrates the October Directive and AC’s and will give RePL holders under or with ReOC’s more autonomy with increased accountability. This means E-VLOS is also possible now.

The new Part101 MoS will change the way in which you obtain an RePL and apply for an ReOC in 2019.  In addition, Drone Registration for all drones over 250g, and mandatory training / accreditation for the hobbyist and sub 2kg excluded category will be implemented mid 2019.
