Thank you for your enquiry regarding the CASA certified Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) training course.

Why Train with Us?

  • We have been over five years in the business; from when CASA first created the courses.
  • We automatically train to the higher 25kg qualification.
  • All subjects are covered comprehensively in a friendly learning environment by professional, experienced aviators. This is becoming more and more important as RePL pilots are regularly mixing in with manned aircraft airspace.
  • The field training includes use of multirotor up to 25kg and work on the FPV tablet presentation.
  • Types of drones used during field training include: DJI Phantoms, Inspire, Matrice M600, Mavic, 3DR Solo and others.
  • Our Radio (AROC) course covers real-world communications around aerodromes.
  • We are up to date with the new CASA certified curriculum theory material.

The CASA requirement is for the student to have logged 5 hours of drone flying by the end of the course (this includes any private drone/model flying you may have done previously).
