Excellent place to do drone training. The gents at The Ripper Aviation Academy are the real deal, have plenty of available practice drones on course so your never standing around waiting. Mike the Chief pilot has a wealth of experience and knowledge after a lifetime of experience in the aviation industry. If your looking at doing the course, look no further as you'd be cheating yourself going anywhere else.

I approached the Ripper Academy after a couple of outstanding recommendations. I completed my RePL with Sub 25kg with Mike who was thoroughly professional and fun to work with. My experience with the Ripper Academy has led me to an instructing position with them which speaks for itself. In my opinion, whether you want to be the best RPA pilot you can be and know the rules for your personal fun, or you want to work commercially, there simply is no better or more experienced option than The Ripper Academy” 5 Stars!

Outstanding training, concise, professional, dedicated , and a course delivered with such a high level of professionalism, every day was a pleasure to log in and sit for my training. The academy's use of technology enabling me to join the course from the remote far south coast town of Eden NSW, also meant I could get on my way towards obtaining my ReOC much sooner than would have normally been possible.

Highly recommend training and getting certified with the Ripper Aviation Academy. Mike, Ben and the team are highly knowledgeable and make it fun to learn. The team aren't just drone pilots they have been in aviation essentially all their lives. They know aviation and they know drones. Can't wait for the next course!

Training with the Ripper Academy was great, there was heaps of information to learn but it was taught clearly. The teachers know their stuff. Can't wait to do more training in the future.

Getting all of my licenses through The Ripper Group was an awesome experience. The team was professional, fun and taught me everything I wanted to learn and more! I am now very confident flying a variety of drones. I have been flying everyday since the guys at The Ripper Group taught me.
