Commercial Use of Drones

RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) utilise cutting edge technology to provide brilliant high definition video and high resolution stills for a multitude of purposes.

Its no secret aerial photography has exploded with high end property professionals and with technology accelerating at such an enormous rate, the competitive advantage is now available to everyone.

A birds eye view gives a sense of space and location for any property while highlighting proximity to infrastructure and amenities.

Aerial platforms  are rapidly becoming vital tools for businesses looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations.

any inspections need to be conducted by personnel getting into precarious positions and because of size can be difficult, timely, costly and unsafe.

Typically, drones have GPS, proximity sensors, 3D mapping software high-definition cameras. So can provide videos and photos of rust and cracks so engineers can safely inspect the footage for defects.

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 or restricted airspace but only with approval from the local airspace authority. The ReOC holder that you fly for will organize this approval.
  • Night flying is now permitted with conditions.

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 Ayers 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)
