Course Overview

Our RePL course covers a minimum of five hours of hands-on flight training. You will be given the chance to fly a number of different aircraft and gain in-depth experience to qualify for CASA flight standards. For those with specific areas of interest, we’re happy to tailor your RePL training to give you more exposure in those areas.

  • RPA law and systems

Once you have completed the course and developed your skills to the appropriate standard, UAV Training Australia can issue you with your remote pilot licence.

Obtaining Your Remote Pilot Licence (RePL)

There are two options available for completing the theory components of our RePL course. Participants can attend our standard face-to-face classroom lessons, or attend via virtual classrooms from the comfort of your own home. Please feel free to call us and speak to our training consultants to work out which ReP training option will suit you best.

Do I Need RePL Training?

UAV Training Australia offers a comprehensive Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) course from our Sydney training grounds. Our RePL training contains all the skills and knowledge drone operators need to obtain their RePL certification and begin operating drones on a commercial or professional basis. Anyone who wants to use drones for work purposes is required to hold an RePL and adhere to the Standard Operating Conditions laid out by CASA.

You don’t need to obtain an RePL if you fly drones for leisure or other private purposes. Likewise, Sub 2kg aircraft are an Excluded Category and you won’t need an RePL to operate one commercially. While recreational pilots aren’t required to hold an RePL, taking an RePL course is a good way to get started as a drone pilot and gain experience with a range of platforms. If you are an amateur pilot or a professional who wants to operate a Sub 2kg aircraft then our Introduction to Drones course is a good alternative to our full RePL course.

Thanks to UAV Training Australia I have just secured a full time position with Ultramag Geophysics as a Matrice 600 operator!

I’m looking forward to the hours and the experience that I will continue to gain with the M600 and payload out in the bush.

The two practical days were really enjoyable and very informative, I learned a lot and gained some great skills and additional confidence.

Thanks for your hard work putting together the practical component of the course for us!!

The trainers Michael and Wayne were professional and polite from 1st phone call to the end of the course.  I would DEFINITELY recommend UAV Training Australia to ANYONE looking to get their RePL and AROC.

I just finished my Remote Pilots Course and the instructors were the most professional and knowledgeable instructors I have had the pleasure to be instructed by in many years. Theory was so informative and their flying of UAV’s was amazing, skill that would be unchallenged.

Thank you for dedication towards my tuition. Best course ever, I learnt heaps! 

A great crew to learn from, excellent experience learning about the industry & gaining a licence!
