How is the course delivered?

This two-day course is designed for RePL holders to gain experience and certification to fly fixed wing aircraft. We use fixed wing platforms from small types like the senseFly Ebee, up to larger systems used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations.

Training can be conducted with our airframes, or we can fully accommodate type training for specific platforms that you intend to operate yourself. Contact us to discuss your type training requirements, and we will endeavour to provide you with the most complete type training solution.

What are the course outcomes?

  • CASA RPA Operating Certification: RPA type and weight class
  • Course Completion Certificate.

When do I receive my certification?

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 Certificate within 2 weeks.

What if I already have a PPL or CPL?

You still need to hold a RePL to do this course, but if you have previous aviation qualifications then you’re halfway there! See our Pilot Transition Program to fast-track your RePL.

This course can also be completed in conjunction with the basic RePL course (Multirotor <7KG)
