Upgrade your RePL with practical type training for
sub-25kg multirotor platforms.
RePL MR <7kg
Practical Training & Assessment
RePL Endorsement: Multirotor < 25kg
$ 1500 ex GST
RePL Upgrade: MR <25kg
This course allows RePL holders to upgrade their licence to operate RPAS up to 25kg.
If you were granted your RePL within the last 3 years or can prove that you are an involved RPA participant, then there is no additional theory required. It is simply a 1-2 day course (weather and competency dependent) of practical training and assessment. You will learn about the larger platform, 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 remotely piloted aircraft systems up to 25kg.
With a standard RePL, you will likely be licensed to operate a multirotor drone up to 7kg, but if you need to fly an RPA larger than 7kg, you can upgrade your certification to include multirotors up to 25kg.
As this is an upgrade course, you need to already hold an RePL for MR <7kg.
To avoid having to repeat 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 $1,500* 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
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 MR <25kg 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.
