Frequently Asked Questions

Swarm approval involves changes to your manuals to include the Swarm procedures, and a CASA flight test to ensure safety and compliance.

Getting the procedures into your manuals is a pretty quick and painless affair.  Getting the flight tests from CASA and the instruments written will take approx 6 weeks or so.

FPV Australia charge for the updates to your manuals and the consultancy during the entire process.  This is a flat fee of $950.  CASA will bill you separately for the flight testing and instruments etc.

Most of this process is done via email etc.  However, there will be a need for a flight test, and that can happen at your own property (if appropriate) or at a location that suits this type of operation.  If you can get to our Sydney training facility, you can complete the flight test there.  You will need your drones.

Yes you can.  CASA will issue a temporary instrument that will allow you to skill yourself up to become competent and ready to pass the flight test.  You can’t train until you have the temporary instrument.
