Upgrade your RePL with type training for
sub-7kg fixed wing platforms.
RePL MR <7kg
Practical Training & Assessment
RePL Endorsement: Fixed Wing < 7kg
$ 1800 ex GST
RePL Upgrade: FW <7kg
This course allows RePL holders to upgrade their licence to operate fixed wing RPAS up to 7kg.
This is simply a 2 day course consisting of Fixed Wing theory and practical components of training and assessment. You will learn about the different category, including standard and advanced manoeuvres to ensure that you have the skills to operate safely and confidently.
Unlike other training providers, our instructors are all unmanned (and manned) pilots with real-world experience, bringing a wealth of knowledge from years in the industry.
On successful completion of this course, you will be licensed to fly commercially under a company’s Remote Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) with fixed wing remotely piloted aircraft systems up to 7kg.
With a standard RePL, you will likely be licensed to operate a multirotor drone up to 7kg, but if you need to fly a fixed wing platform (different category), you can upgrade your certification to include fixed wings up to 7kg.
As this is an upgrade course, you need to already hold an RePL for MR <7kg.
To avoid having to repeat core Theory components, your RePL must have been issued within the last 3 years, or you must prove that you are currently an involved RPA participant.
The RePL course costs $1,800* ex GST – we accept online payments or bank transfers. The price includes all training materials, CASA RePL upgrade application fees and administration.
*Corporate group discounts available
There is half a day of Theory training and assessment specific to the fixed wing category. Practical training and assessment on the platform will make up the remaining 1.5 days.
As part of your RePL you would have needed a minimum 5hours flight time to pass the practical component. There is no time requirement for the upgrade – it is an assessment of your practical competency on the larger platform. For this reason, 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.
CASA RePL Endorsement for FW<7kg and a Course Completion Certificate
We will present you with a Course Completion Certificate on the final day and our team will submit the required paperwork to CASA who will issue your RePL Endorsement within 2 weeks.
