In order to operate any Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) or drone over 2kg commercially, you must hold a CASA issued Remote Pilot Licence. If you wish to operate commercially under the 2kg excluded category, the RePL will allow you to obtain insurance for your operations.
We provide online and classroom options nationwide, for multirotor, fixed wing and helicopter type aircraft up to 25kg.
If you hold a Manned Aircraft Pilots Licence (PPL, CPL or ATPL), or an Air Traffic Controller Certificate, you are only required to complete Operation Training in order to obtain your Remote Pilot Licence (RePL).
In addition, if you already hold a Remote Pilot Licence for a specific type and weight class of RPA, you can add additional RPA types and weight class to your existing licence by doing the relevant Operation Training.
We offer Operation Training for multirotors, fixed wing and helicopter type aircraft up to 25kg.
Now that you are licensed, and can fly your RPA of choice – do you know how to operate your camera and complete post production of your footage?
If not, our professional photographers, videographers and editors have created a course suited for RPA Aerial photographers.
In order to operate commercially under 7kg or 25kg weight class, you must work under a RPA Operator Certificate (ReOC). As the ReOC is a document intensive process (rather than study based), we offer ReOC assistance so that you will be able to submit your ReOC directly to CASA.
CASA requires all pilots (and ground crew) who need to communicate via an Air Radio to hold a suitable radio certificate.
Under CASR 101.285, you must hold a AROC to operate in controlled airspace or when CASA specifies the need to communicate with Aircraft.
