There are no pre requisites for the RePL course. But you will need to have an ARN (Aviation Reference Number) issued by CASA before we can process your Remote Pilot licence. If you do not have an ARN, you can apply for one via the CASA ARN Application process.

Type Training

If you already hold an Australian pilots licence for Aeroplane or helicopter, you don’t have to do a full 5 day course. We can offer you a conversions course and type training.

This involves only 1 and 1/2 days of practical and theory training to cover off the RPA specific subjects required to issue you with an RePL.

We do need you to have some previous Drone flying experience before attending this course.
