We can offer you Type Training on a range of aircraft both <7kg and <25kg.

From June 1 2017 CASA made changes to the process in which to gain a RePL.  This can now only be achieved if the training organisation has CASA approval to deliver the training.  FPV Australia has such approval.

 

 

<7kg RePL Type Conversion

Do you hold a manned aircraft licence (PPL or better)

From June 1 2017, manned aircraft pilots looking to add drones to their licensing must attend a CASA approved training school for Type Training.  The old “Manufacturer Training” is no more.

FPV Australia offers this training during our course proper.  It consists of 1 day of training including theory and practical flight.  You will not be required to sit through the entire RPAS course, as you will already have an understanding of aviation regulations etc.  However, we will spend time in the classroom to deliver you vital information with regards to the safe operation of the drone, and then we will take you outside for some practical flying, where we will put you through a practical flight demonstration where you will need to demonstrate competency on the drone.

Upon successful completion of this training, FPV Australia will submit all the necessary paperwork to CASA on your behalf for the issue of the RePL.

What does it cost?

The cost of this training is $750, and can be completed on any of our RePL courses that are running around the country. Contact us 02 6112 8551 to book in.

What is included?

As you will be joining us for the day, we include everything you need.  Course material and the drone to fly etc!  Will also provide you with lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

Where is the training conducted?

You can complete this Type Training on any of our courses that are being conducted around Australia.  Simply give us a call on 02 6112 8551 or email training@fpvaustralia.com.au and find out where the next nearest course to you is.

<25kg RePL Type Conversion

This course is for existing RePL or Controllers Certificate holders whom would like to fly MultiRotor aircraft with a take off weight of more than 7kg, but less than 25kg.

From June 1 2017 CASA made changes to the process in which to gain a RePL. This can now only be achieved if the training organisation has CASA approval to deliver the training. FPV Australia has such approval.

This course consists of theory components pertinent to flying a larger MultiRotor aircraft, and a practical flight demonstration a heavy machine. FPV Australia uses a DJI M600 Pro for this. You will need some experience already flying a larger MultiRotor.

Only a few hours is required for this conversion, as is conducted in the afternoon on our existing RePL courses around Australia.  Feel free to have a look on our course calendar and see if there is a course running near you that you can jump into.

 

Prerequisites

You must already hold a Remote Pilot Certificate or Remote Pilot’s Licence <7kg MultiRotor, or have passed an aviation theory exam, such as the PPL. You will also need some level of experience flying a drone.

This course module is not for beginners.  You will need to demonstrate to FPV Australia that you have a minimum of 5 hours of logged flight on a drone before attempting this course.  Although this is not a requirement to gain certification, it demonstrates to us that you have flying experience and will have no problem handling a larger drone.

If you have not had any experience flying a larger drone, please contact our office to discuss your specific needs.

Please indicate which RePL course you would like to book in to.

Upon successful completion of this training, FPV Australia will submit all the necessary paperwork to CASA on your behalf for the issue of the RePL.
