Why do you need a RePL and an AROC ?

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in Australia requires a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) to operate a drone (or Remotely Piloted Aircraft — RPA) that weighs above 2kg and is being used for commercial purposes.

If you intend on conducting any flying within controlled airspace, you will also require an Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate (AROC). 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

What will you learn?

  • Flight Planning
  • Navigation
  • Controlled Airspace
  • Air Law
  • Identifying airspace
  • Gaining area approvals
  • NOTAMS (Notice to airmen)
  • Principles of Flight
  • Weight and Balance

How long does the course take?

Our in-class RePL course consists of 3 days of theory and 2 days of practical on-site.

How much does it cost?

Our in-class RePL course costs $2,500 inc. GST.

What are the benefits of studying in-class?

Our in-class RePL course is for those who prefer a classroom, face-to-face environment — where you can be really hands-on. 

Our fully air-conditioned classrooms provide a quiet, comfortable learning environment and each class is kept  small to ensure that you receive the personal attention you need. 

All rooms feature state-of-the-art data projectors and widescreen digital monitors and we also make use of simulator software to help you transition across to flying drones.

Where do you offer in-class RePL courses?

We run regular courses in all of the major capital cities in Australia.
