Commercial Use of Drones

An RPA (drone) will usually have photographic surveillance or photographic image or video image capture capability including infrared; this is called payload. These types of vehicles have historically been used in military applications for missions that are too dangerous for manned aircraft.

WHERE & WHEN You can Fly Your Drone


  • You can fly your drone anywhere not above 400ft; except, you must not fly within 3nm (5.2km) of an aerodrome that has an active Air Traffic Control.
  • You must not fly over a non-controlled aerodrome or under its runway approach paths.
  • You may fly in military restricted airspace but only with approval from the military representative in charge of the area. The ReOC holder that you fly for will organize this approval.
  • Night flying is now permitted with conditions.


As mentioned above, our dedicated team of CASA certified RPA (drone) controllers have extensive experience in the commercial aviation industry including, collectively; current GA Commercial Pilot Licence; aviation Flight Engineer; working together with CASA flight operations; to deliver professional, industry standard training.

General Comments “An excellent introduction to an everchanging & evolving industry. Professionally presented. I look forward to a long & rewarding relationship with you and fellow students.” (K.D.)


“Great course and I learned so much. FYI, I was on a small charter flight on the weekend between a remote aboriginal community and Ayres Rock. During  the flight, I had plenty of questions to ask the pilot about airspace, radio usage and how he was getting the most out of Oz Runways. Great to go through the theory while actually in the air”. (P.B)
