Understanding the rules surrounding drone use is important to ensure the safety of all airspace users. Here at Fly the Farm, we are advocates for ensuring that drone users understand how to fly safely while still having fun. You can find out more via the CASA "Know your Drone" site.

This is a 4.5 day, Remote Pilots Licence course.
I have spent two years looking for a training organisation who I can trust to bring high quality RePL & ReOC training to rural Australia. That company is UAS Pacific. Their syllabus is high quality, best practice training which is provided by highly skilled instructors with vast experience in commercial operations (both manned and unmanned). They are one of just a handful of training organisations in Australia who are QBE certified, meaning that trainees are able to access insurance with QBE following training.
Training can occur in Brisbane or Toowoomba, or at your location or nearest town if we can get 4 or more people attending.
Toowoomba training occurs the 3rd week of every month if there are enough confirmed numbers attending. Please confirm with Meg prior to booking on 0492 979 491 in case of unscheduled changes.
Successfully complete your training with UAS Pacific and CASA will issue you with your Remote Pilot Licence (RePL), which is the unmanned version of a pilot’s licence.
Everything is included:
- training aircraft and associated equipment,
- flight simulators,
- training manual with online support,
- notepad and pen,
- lunch and refreshments, soft drink, tea and coffee is provided
- CASA processing and administration costs.
RePL bookings recommended 1 week prior to course commencement as there is self study required.
**all UAS/ drone pilots, who will wish to fly in controlled airspace and/or beyond visual line of sight require their aircraft radio operators certificate (AROC), including a pass in the english language proficiency (ELP) examinations. This also includes ground operations personnel like spotters who are using an aircraft radio.
