Ensuring accreditation and
Comprehensive training to suit all requirements
CASA Accredited Training
Commercial drone use must meet CASA’s accreditation. This includes, fixed wing and multi-rotor drones, Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) and Remotely Piloted Operators Certificate (ReOC). As an industry leader we know, understand and provide this training at the highest level..
For corporates that are considering drone technology or simply want to learn more about it, we offer drone fundamentals & education training so your organisation is abreast of this rapidly advancing industry.
Industry Specific Training
We offer industry specific UAV training so if you’re thinking of engaging drone technology, want to understand the potential applications for your industry, or simply want to gain and understanding of the potential, you now have the opportunity.
In commercial applications it is generally a requirement that you need to be licensed and/or certified by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).

This will be dependent on what training you are seeking to undertake. There are four primary categories.
- Recreational – No licence is required. You are just required to abide by the Standard Operating Conditions. These can be found in your drone manual or at https://www.casa.gov.au/modelaircraft. We also strongly encourage you to visit the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) information forum on drone use.
- Excluded Category – This is where your drone equipment weighs less than 2kg – also known as (Sub-2kg). You are required to register your details and abide by the Standard Operating Conditions. These can be found in your drone manual or at https://www.casa.gov.au/modelaircraft. We also strongly encourage you to visit the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) information forum on drone use.
- RPA Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) and Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) required. Commercial use operations (outside Recreational and Excluded Category), generally require pilots to hold an RePL and operate under an ReOC. As an example, this is similar to Qantas having an Operating Certificate and all their pilots being individually licenced.
- Trick 4th Category – This category allows landholders such as farmers to fly on their own land as long as their drone equipment is less than 150kg. Specifically, if it weighs between 2kg and 25kg, no ReOC is required. If it weighs between 25kg and 150kg, however, an RePL is required but no ReOC.
Of course, we always encourage pilots flying, or seeking to fly commercially, to undertake continuous education and training.
