Blended Face-To-Face and Online Tuition

Our aviation qualified instructors provide quality in-person and online tuition through our online training portal, allowing flexible study options.

AROC & ELP Included

Obtaining an Aeronautical Radio Operator’s Certificate will enable advanced operations, flight of heavier RPA in airspace and efficient management of flight near aerodromes.

No previous drone/RPAS flying experience is required to undertake our course.

The theoretical content is aimed at a level of knowledge and comprehension of a person that has completed year 10. The minimum age we will accept on a course is 17.

Any person aged under 18 will also require permission from a parent or guardian to attend.

As part of our course we also cover the cost of the CASA fees for the AROC and ELP (a saving of $130) which is not included by many other training providers.

Pilot Conversion Pathway - RePL

Aviation Australia offers the opportunity to have recognition of prior learning (RPL) of previous studies, qualifications and experience assessed for certification against any RPAS training. If you hold previous aviation qualifications/experience, you do not have to complete the full, four-day RePL training course to obtain your remote pilot licence. We are approved to conduct the necessary operational training, and therefore can assist any existing pilots or air traffic controllers.
