Who are we?

FPV Australia, along with Mongrel Gear was started in 2006 by John Fleming when his love for all things RC lead to a business idea that soon became something more.  After being self employed in the IT industry for more than 22 years, John put his business skills to use in this new business venture, and it wasn’t long before Mongrel Gear and FPV Australia were thriving.

In 2008 Mongrel Gear began building custom built multirotors and was shipping them all over the world – even to the North Pole.  With the explosion of the multirotor industry, and the arrival of companies like DJI, the demand for custom built copters began to grow rapidly, and Mongrel Gear would cement itself as a forerunner in this new and cutting edge industry.

In 2013 Mongrel Gear was officially recognised by CASA to provide Manufacturer-Type training for multirotors, and in 2014 some 7 years after the business started, Mongrel Gear took its skills and industry knowledge and began working on a training program to allow pilots to obtain certification from CASA to fly their multirotors commercially.

With a lot of hard work, and in close consultation with CASA, in August of 2014, FPV Australia was officially recognised as a CASA Approved Training Organisation, and went to work opening its first flight school in Gungahlin, ACT – the first of its type in the country, and now has branched out, running courses in every state in Australia.
