RE: 5 day RePL training course:

Classroom Environment; Theory PresentationGeneral Comments:

“Good diversity of people attending the Course and really able to ask questions. Enjoyed flying the larger drones” (B.S.)

“Good class size & right environment for learning. Presentation very good.” (B.S.)

“Fantastic, well prepared and professional learning experience” (P.A)

“I did my Remote Pilot Licence course for multirotor RPAs with Interspacial as they offered a lot of bang for the buck with their affordable course fees but industrial-standard training platforms, including the DJI Inspire and Matrice 600. Throughout the course, no corners were cut. There was a very strong emphasis placed on safety as there was on RPA airmanship itself. The staff are friendly and very helpful with both the training as well as the administrative side of things. The instructors, Stewart, Jimmy and Abraham are highly experienced, professional, and knowledgeable in the field of drones and will get you up to speed in no time, oh, and June whips up an awesome lunch too! This is definitely the place to be to kick-start your career as a drone pilot. Highly recommended.” (S.W)

“I found that the small size of the classroom as an advantage towards a better visual and hearing through the course material”. (H.T.) “Thorough & in-depth content for such a short time frame” (P.A)
