Australia-wide CASA Certified Drone Training Provider

CASA Certified Drone Training

Wicked Copters is the only CASA-certified drone training organisation approved to the new 2020 Manual of Standards (MOS) to offer up to 25kg Multi Rotor, Aeroplane, Helicopter and Powered Lift* drone training. We also provide a number of specialised and industry-focused advanced courses.

We have the industry’s best practice instructor-to-student ratios - one instructor to two students in the field for Multi Rotor, and one on one for all other types. As new commercial drone models are increasing in capabilities and weight above 7kg (such as DJI Matrice 300), we recommend you complete a sub 25kg weight class wherever possible for future proofing your skill sets and employer demands.

This is a five day RePL course for students and includes your Radio Licence (AROC) and English Language Proficiency (ELP). Your RePL allows you to operate drones commercially in the excluded category or under a Remote Operators Certificate (ReOC). You will need to have accreditation to fly the correct type (e.g. Multi Rotor) and category (e.g Small, up to 25kg).
