This course recognises prior aviation qualifications to fast-track your RePL MR < 7kg.
This course has been developed to assist those with existing aeronautical qualifications (PPL, CPL, ATPL or RPL) to obtain a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) through a tailored training syllabus. The program offers recognition of prior qualifications whilst providing the highest standards of RPA training for those seeking to embark on a career as a Remote Pilot, or looking to utilise RPA as a commercial business tool.
You don’t need to complete theory RePL training if you have passed the theory component of any Part 61 flight crew licence. This is simply a 1-2 day course consisting of practical training and assessment. You will learn about the platform, including standard and advanced manoeuvres to ensure that you have the skills to operate safely and confidently.
On successful completion of this course, you will be licensed to fly commercially under a company’s Remote Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) with multirotor remotely piloted aircraft systems up to 7kg.
To comply with Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) regulations, a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) is required to operate a drone that weighs over 2kg for commercial purposes.
RePL is also a prerequisite of applying for a ReOC (Remote Operator’s Certificate) – which is a requirement for any business to operate drones commercially with licenced pilots.
With an RePL, you can operate a multirotor drone up to 7kg and you can upgrade your certification to include higher type ratings such as:
- Weight Upgrade – Multirotor <25kg
- Category Upgrade – Fixed Wing <7kg
- Category Upgrade – Powered Lift < 7kg
You should take this course if you are wishing to embark on a career as a Remote Pilot, or looking to utilise RPA as a commercial business tool. Our RePL (Pilot Transition Program) has been designed for individuals prior aeronautical experience, preparing you for safe RPA operations to the highest professional standards.
The RePL course costs $1,500* ex GST – we accept online payments or bank transfers. The price includes all training materials, AROC fee and CASA RePL fee and administration.

This course consists of practical training and assessment, including the required minimum of 5 hours flight time. We allow 1-2 days for the instructor to train and assess you for as long as it takes for them to be completely satisfied that you are competent and prepare you for safe RPA operations to the highest professional standards.
This practical training is conducted at our dedicated training field in Brisbane. We provide all the necessary equipment, resources and support to prepare you for a successful outcome.
Although there is no theory component required due to prior qualifications, we still provide you with the training materials which you can study in your own time to ensure that you have an understanding of the theoretical components specific to RPAS.
