Remote Pilot Licence (RePL Drone Training)

Wicked Copters provides leading CASA Approved Drone Training for all Remote Pilot Licences (sub 7kg and sub 25kg), Operation Training and AROC/ELP courses across Australia every week.

As leaders in remote aviation operations and training, we are the CASA approved RePL training organisation providing multi rotor, aeroplane and helicopter sub 25kg RePL drone licence courses.  All our RePL courses are updated and approved by CASA, and include the October 17 Directive.

Our students are issued with a CASA Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) which 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 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.

Course Syllabus:

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.

What do I need?

Just your ARN:

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.

You may have heard of the CASA ARN (Aviation Reference Number) which is a similar unique identifier as your drivers license. You need to apply for your ARN by email from CASA currently using Form 1162 and you should receive it within a week. There is no cost involved.

Pricing:

We cover all the costs related to the Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and there are no ongoing costs as your licence is perpetual.
