Remote Pilot Licensing

Do I Need a RePL Qualification?

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in Australia requires a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) to operate a drone (or Remotely Piloted Aircraft — RPA) that weighs above 2kg and is being used for commercial purposes. We will provide you with the training to qualify for both a RePL and an Aeronautical Radio Operators Certificate (AROC), which is required to operate a drone in controlled airspace.


National Drones Institute is your all-in-one service for RPAS training to obtain a Remote Pilot Licence (RePL), providing official training courses and commercial aerial activities for those wishing to undertake a career. All our RPAS training courses are CASA-Approved, ensuring the quality of our instruction and our conformance to industry requirements and standards. Whether you’re an experienced RPA pilot seeking certification for commercial activities or a complete beginner wanting to learn how to fly an unmanned aircraft, you’ll get the necessary training to get your drone licence.
