Our Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) Course

RePL training

COVID 19 UPDATE – We are following the government’s advice and recommendations. For this reason we’ve had to put a hold on the in person delivery component of our REPL courses away from our main base in Brisbane. We are still offering the online training component nationally and we will be conducting two day practical assessment courses in every state once the restrictions are lifted. We are running one-to-one courses out of our main base in Brisbane as we can ensure separation standards without exposure to the public. Please get in touch with any questions at:

Our Remote Pilot Course has been designed in line with the upcoming RePL manual of standards being drafted by CASA to govern RPA/UAV knowledge and flight standards across Australia. Our course is broken down into theoretical and practical flight components, with options for either in person or online theory delivery. As part of our RePL course we provide:

5.0 Hours Flight Time

Begin on our DJI Phantom and progress to our Inspire 1 RPA whilst building your required 5 hours flight time on course. We’ve deliberately designed RePL flight exercises that maximise your exposure to the full capabilities of RPA and ensure you meet the CASA designated flight standards. We also practice utilising the onboard camera systems and capabilities of both systems to prepare you for aerial photography, survey and inspection operations.

Blended Face-To-Face and Online Tuition

Our aviation qualified instructors provide quality in person and online tuition through our online training portal, allowing you to complete your course at your own pace. Instead of having to attend a five-day course, the theory can be completed at your own pace, followed by a two-day face-to-face course. Our theory has been developed with leading aviation theory developer the Aviation Theory Centre. Our course includes lessons on: RPA Law, RPA Systems, Meteorology, Navigation, Human Factors, Operational Planning and Aeronautical Radio.

AROC & ELP Included

Our aviation instructors are endorsed to provide Aeronautical Radio Operator’s Certificate Training, without this your RePL may be limited to line of sight remaining clear of controlled airspace. As part of our course we also cover the cost of the CASA fees for the AROC and ELP (a saving of $150) which is not included by most other training providers.

Remote Aviation Australia offers options to complete your initial RPAS training (theoretical and operational), flying multirotor RPA. Once you have completed your course and passed your theoretical and operational exams we will send your paperwork (Form 101-05) to CASA for processing. Roughly 2-4 weeks later you will receive your RePL in the mail with your type and category of RPA listed.

Once you have your RePL in hand you can apply for third party liability insurance if you are intending to operate an RPA falling under the excluded category. As a qualified remote pilot you may also work under an ReOC or apply to CASA as Chief Remote Pilot for your own ReOC.

Please contact us if you would like to complete operational training to add another category of RPA to your RePL.
