Our Sydney RePL course enables you to become a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) certified remote pilot. With a mix of theoretical work and practical flight experience, successful completion of this course allows you to obtain a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and operate drones professionally.
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.
Participants also complete theoretical the competencies required by CASA’s Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) licensing requirements. The theoretical competencies in this RePL training includes:
- RPA law and systems
- Human factors
- Operational flight planning
- Aviation English Language
- Other RePL course modules
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.
