Introduction to drones.

  • What has changed

    Effective 29 September 2016, the new category of excluded RPA came into effect, with reduced regulatory requirements to fly very small RPAs commercially. Operations under 2kg (excluded) will not need an RPA operator's certificate (ReOC), or a remote pilot licence (RePL). We have designed this course specifically to guide you for a safer and enjoyable experience and to keep the skies safe.
