Flying sub-2Kg drones may not require a licence but does require some skills!

An intensive, enjoyable and targeted RPAS training package for individuals and businesses. This 2-day, face to face course was born from training delivered to Surf Life Savers in RPAS surveillance operations on our beaches – and it is now available to the wider community. The course provides a level of theoretical and practical training that will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to operate your sub 2Kg RPAS commercially and / or recreationally within CASA’s sub 2kg RPAS guidelines. More information can be found here.

Who’s it for

  • Individuals and businesses that do not require a CASA RePL qualification, but have identified the need for an effective, short duration and cost effective RPAS training solution
  • New sub 2Kg drone owners (or future drone owners) wanting the skill sets required for getting the most out their aircraft
  • Individuals wishing to explore their interest in RPAS or take on flying as a hobby
  • Those looking for an activity that is both fun and educational. Combined parent / child options available.
