Operation Training

Wicked Copters is a CASA approved RePL Training Organisation.

Our instructors are both CASA licencsed and MAAA / MAAQ members. Our aeroplane training is carried out at approved flying locations West of Brisbane.

Our 2019 RePL Commercial Drone Pilot Licence and Operation Training courses are aligned with the new Part101 MoS, effective 9 April 2019.

The Operation Training is for:

  • current PPL, CPL or ATPL pilots wanting to obtain their Remote Pilot Licence in the under 7kg or under 25kg weight class.

  • or current UAV Controller Certificate or Remote Pilot Licence holders who wish to upgrade to the under 25kg weight class for the same type of craft as per their Licence.  This includes multirotors, fixed wing and helicopter, and you will require at least 5 hours logged flying experience on your type;

  • or for current UAV Controller Certificate or Remote Pilot Licence holders who wish to add a different type of craft to their existing Licence.  This includes multirotors, fixed wing and helicopter, and you will require at least 5 hours logged flying experience on your type.

If you already hold a UAV Controller Certificate or Remote Pilot Licence, and you complete our CASA approved Operation Training, then we will submit details of your experience gained to CASA using Form 101-05.

 

If you have a manned aviation licence, then you will receive your initial licence only after you submit details of your experience gained (via our Operation Training) to CASA using Form 101-01, and you will be required to pay your CASA fee (approx $160) for the issuing of the licence.

 

Operation Training is conducted at the end of our RePL drone training courses in your area (Fortnightly in Brisbane, every 4 weeks in other centres).
