FEEDBACK from Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (drone) TRAINING COURSE STUDENTS

2018

RE: 5 day RePL training course:

Classroom Environment: “I found that the small size of the classroom as an advantage towards a better visual and hearing through the course material”. (H.T.)

Theory Presentation: “Both instructors were fully experienced and knowledgeable about what they were teaching. They also had good skills in teaching and explain the complicated subject into an easy and understandable form”. (H.T.)

Flying Training: “Really good. I had no prior experience and was started on the basic manoeuvres with good direction, and moved up at a steady pace.” (E).

“Flying training was fun and most enjoyable part. Both Jimmy and Stewart were patient with non-experienced students and provide 1 to 1 training where it was necessary.” (H.T.)

Radio (AROC): “All the practice made me more confident for the exam.” (E).

“Classroom was well set out and comfortable. Theory content was quite complex in places but Stewart & Jimmy did an excellent job in making the information easy to understand & relevant to RPA operations. Flying was the highlight of the course, very hands on & included practical tips for actual RPA operations. It was also great to experience a wide range of different UAV models/sizes.” (R.W.)

“Interactive classes with breaks scheduled kept the class entertained. I got a lot out of it personally. It was great to fly multiple types of drones. Theory & practical was explained thoroughly”. (J.G.)

Radio (AROC) “Felt comfortable and not uneasy doing the practical components with a good examiner in Min. I think the course was great with Stewart & Jimmy being very experienced instructors and fantastic teachers.” (J.G.)

“Friendly! Love Stewart ‘question’ & Jimmy’s joke, traditional OZ environment. Great food & lunch. As a English as second language I still can understand most of the content” (S.T.)

Flying Training: “Overall it is great experience.” Re Radio (AROC) “Comprehensive and practice made us perfect.” (S.T.)

Photography Course: “Great structure – Composition first…. definitely worthwhile – inspired to move forward.” (M.W.)

RE: 1 day ‘type’ training course for PPL/RPL pilots: “I just wanted to thank all of you there for the very enjoyable RePL course yesterday. Very relaxed, informative and interesting. And great egg sandwiches at lunchtime too. I thought the delivery of the information was spot on and am very happy that I picked you to do my course with. I may come back to you soon for your opinions on the most seful/practical/value for money machine”. (S.S)

 RE: 5 day RePL training course:

“Classroom environment was fine, everyone was extremely friendly & understanding with each students learning capabilities.” Thanks guys. (A.H.)

“Flying training was great fun. Very intuitive and no one crashed.” (A.H.)

“The instructors were knowledgeable and always willing to stop and explain something in a bit more depth to allow full comprehension by all members on the Course. The grounds where the flying training was undertaken was perfect for what was needed by the students, it allowed us to focus on piloting with minimal distractions or obstacles.” (T.R)

“Friendly learning environment. Comprehensive coverage of all subjects” (A.P) “Great format.” (B.P) “Relaxed, informal environment which facilitates open discussion and questioning.” (B.W)

“Very knowledgeable presenters, very easy to listen to and stay engaged. Enjoyed learning the new materials and aviation theory. I loved the Papua flight stories. Fantastic and encouraging testimonials.” (D.S)

“Nice setup. Good flow of information and well explained. Flying training – as a beginner, the help of the hosts was much appreciated.” (F.V)

“Excellent facilities & relaxed environment for learning. Instructors always willing to assist & clarify in any way. Clear & concise presentation of extensive subject matter. Lots of anecdotal stories enhanced the overall experience. Flying training matched the level of classroom training. This made it very easy to learn & better understand flight & aircraft control. Quickly learnt the basics of aviation radio communications. Again the level of instruction was excellent.” (C.T)

“Great balance between each of the lecturers. Sometimes feeding off one another with a bit of humour. Subject units all comprehensively dealt with. Reckon I could now fly a B52 Bomber or an F111 flighter jet! Plenty of opportunity to ask questions.” (N.B)

“I am pleased to tell you I have been granted recently my own ReOC to maintain, Chief Remote Pilot status achieved. The CASA assessment process really drove home and solidified the RePL training provided by Interspacial, thank you for all your help, training and guidance.” (B.P.)

“Pleasant & stress free; very concise; great to use a variety of drone sizes; good fun.” (F.B)

“Very well run; most enjoyable.” (J.W)

“Comfortable work area; well presented & great knowledge; plenty of practice time during flying training.” (T)

“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)
