An exciting course that takes your flying to the next level. Any pilot currently holding an RePL can access our Extended Visual Line of Sight ( EVLOS ) course. In EVLOS 1, the pilot is able to fly beyond the usual distances limited by the pilot's ability to see and orientate their aircraft by using an observer located with the Pilot.
The Ripper Aviation Academy are the ONLY training organisation currently in Australia to have a comprehensive EVLOS 1 and 2 training syllabus delivered in our unique, highly experienced and expert lead delivery modes, but also have the operational and procedures libraries written ready for you to incorporate into your ReOC. There simply is no comparison anywhere to our delivery in EVLOS 1, EVLOS 2 and onto BVLOS training with us being able to deliver and end to end solution no one else can from EVLOS training, certification, approvals, ReOC variations to include EVLOS and IREX training - all in-house.
When flying beyond your own line of sight, your observer will take that role from you in constant communication giving you exact feedback on your aircraft surroundings. You continue to fly your aircraft using your App or GCS whilst your observer maintains the 'visual' element of your flight.
In EVLOS 1 scenarios, there are no further requirements for the pilot in charge ( PIC ) - in EVLOS 2 scenarios for example, you are required to hold the CASA Instrument Rating Exam also available with us at the Ripper Academy.
In our course, you'll learn about all the rules and regulations for EVLOS flight and how to apply them practically. We'll fly using FPV, spotting scopes or other visual aids to help you experience both sides of the operation, both as an EVLOS 1 observer and Pilot. You'll complete the course and leave with approval certification for you as a pilot to fly EVLOS 1 scenarios. You will then be able to apply for approval on your ( or your employers ) ReOC for EVLOS approval and operations.
