To operate a drone which has a weight of above 2kg in Australia for Commercial Purposes, then the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations dictate that you require a remote pilot licence (RePL). At National Drones Institute we can train and certify you to obtain a remote pilot licence in just five contact days if you are attending one of our face to face courses.
National Drones Institute also has CASA approval to issue certification on both fixed wing and multi-rotor systems up to 25kg. We have specifically designed our course to be fun, informative and practical to pack as much benefit into the time you have with us as possible. Our instructors all have practical experience with both multi-rotor and fixed wing systems, which means that experience gets passed onto you.
If you intend on conducting any jobs or operations within controlled airspace – you will also require an aeronautical radio operator certificate. This gives you the ability to monitor the appropriate VHF aviation frequency as well as make broadcasts when operating within 3nm of a non-controlled aerodrome. The training and assessment for this certification is conducted by National Drones Institute and is included in our Remote Pilot Licence Course. A pre-requisite of the Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate is that you must have an English Language Proficiency assessment completed. This is also conducted as part of the course.
