As leaders in remote aviation operations and training, we are the CASA approved RePL training organisation providing multi rotor, aeroplane and helicopter sub 25kg and Heavy Lift RePL drone licence courses. All our RePL courses are updated and approved by CASA, and include the October 17 Directive and the new GAF forecast.
All our students are issued with a CASA sub 25kg Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) which also enables you to fly at night and in close proximity to people in accordance with your ReOC approvals and procedures. We cover the night flying and close proximity procedures as part of our courses.
Group bookings receive discounts when attending the same course, as do courses bundled with an aircraft.
If you are in a location that is not listed below and would like to attend a course, please contact us.
Our leading RePL drone training program has been developed by Wicked Copters, continually updated and approved by CASA. We supply every student with our 300+ page digital book, as well as a printed copy if requested. Our courses are detailed and in depth, but we ensure you understand and achieve competencies on all topics before moving on to any assessments.
Our course is either a fulltime Instructor led or Virtual Online Theory Study with 2 days of instructor led review, training and assessment. For those who do not have a UAV/RPA /Drone, we do supply training craft (eg: Mavic Pro, Phantom, Inspire, S1000 and M600 Pro, aeroplanes and helicopters) for sub 25kg and sub 25kg Restricted weight classes. We also have great bundles (see table below) which include the Remote Pilot Licence, AROC, ELP, ReOC assistance and assessment.
Upon completion of the relevant RePL Drone Licence Course you will receive a CASA sub 25kg remote pilot licence to operate ANY Multi-Rotor, Aeroplane or Helicopter. If you want to upgrade your restricted (formerly sub 7kg) licence or hold a manned aviation licence, no worries, we do conduct Operation Training up to 25kg, and theory training for up to 150kg.

What do I need?
We provide the textbook and training aircraft (of which we have a number of different types) and all the assessments. So whether you are an experienced Remote Pilot, or just a beginner (even if you have never flown before) – we cater for all experience levels.
Just your ARN:
You need to apply for your ARN from CASA before we can lodge your RePL application after the course. There is no cost involved.
CASA has changed to the way you apply for your Aviation Reference Number. One hundred points of ID will be required for all applications from 2 July 2018. Where your ID can be validated online, an ARN will be issued immediately.
We cover all the costs related to the Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and there are no ongoing costs as your licence is perpetual.
