Let our team of experienced instructors teach you everything you need to get your RePL (Remote Pilot Licence), through a combination of classroom and practical training. Choosing this more in-depth approach to training will help distinguish you as an exceptionally trained pilot and give you the skills to complete RPAS operations to a high standard.
You will learn about the equipment, airspace regulations, weather, site assessments, maintenance, emergency procedures, flight best practices and more. 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 conduct commercial operations under a company’s Remote Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) with remotely piloted aircraft systems under 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:
- Multirotor <25kg
- Fixed Wing <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 program has been designed for individuals with little or no aeronautical experience, preparing you for safe RPA operations to the highest professional standards.
The RePL course costs $1,995* ex GST – we accept online payments or bank transfers. The price includes all training materials, AROC fee and CASA RePL fee and administration.
*Corporate group discounts available
This course consists of 5 days of interactive face-to-face training at our facility in Eagle Farm (Brisbane). The program includes 3 days of theory with multiple-choice assessment and 2 days of practical training at our dedicated training field with a practical flight test. We provide all the training material, resources and support to prepare you for a successful outcome.
