Course Description

This course has specifically been designed for individuals looking to obtain their Remote Pilot’s Licence via 5 days of interactive and mentored classroom learning. Upon completion of this program, students will be licenced and fully prepared to conduct commercial operations with remotely piloted systems that have a take of weight of less than 7kg.

Please note: If you are looking to start your own drone business, you will also require a Remote Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) which is not included in this course. Please click here to view our courses that do include a ReOC.

This Remote Pilot’s licence program is broken down into three parts:

  1. Theory
  2. Practical training (5 hours of mentored practical flying – Drones Provided by Ace)
  3. Field tests & Theoretical exams (Held at the training fields or in class respectively)

Upon enrolment, students will receive a comprehensive welcome pack containing all information relating to their 5-day course as well as access to Ace Aviation’s online study materials. During these 5 days, students will be mentored by Ace Aviation’s trainers as they work through several theoretical and practical components. These modules will provide students with a complete understanding of RPAS operations, procedures, terminology and applications.

Over the five days, students will alternate between practical and theoretical study. Practical training and assessment will be held at the training fields, while theoretical study and exams will be held in class. Students will be fully guided and supported throughout the process.

The theoretical exam will be in a multi-choice format and all topics in the exam will have been covered beforehand by trainers and online study materials. The practical side of this course includes one day of field training, where students will learn how to manage their aircraft with the assistance of Ace trainers. During this time, students will be able to work with trainers through any difficulties they may be having in controlling/manoeuvring their drone. The practical assessment component of this course is not considered difficult. It is required by law to ensure that future pilots can operate their drone safely. With our trainers by your side throughout the entire course, you will be well prepared in all aspects of commercial drone operations.
