Remote Pilot Licence – Course Notes

This is the Basic RPAS Course and covers the required CASA Syllabus to ensure you possess the required knowledge and skill to operate a Drone legally and safely under the provision of a Remote Pilot Licence. This is an Aviation Course and on the successful completion of it you are issued with a CASA Remote Pilot Licence and entitled to its privileges.  All Aviation courses are competency based and as such you must pass the theory and practical components to be deemed competent. This course includes the required 5 hours of drone flying to meet the requirements of the Remote Pilot Licence.

The 5 hours of flying is not designed to train you as a ‘Drone Racer’ but provide you with basic flying skills you need with an element of precision.

We understand that some students are already very experienced and competent in flying Drones or RC Aircraft and we will embrace those skills. However, this does not change the fact that you must complete this course (the CASA Syllabus) in both theory and practical components to the standard required. Remember, we are an aviation company providing an aviation related course to individuals so they can obtain an Aviation licence namely the Remote Pilot Licence (RePL).

Ultimately, it all about the Legal and Safe operation of Drones.
