Course Description

Ace aviation prides itself in being the only provider in Australia to offer candidates the unique opportunity to learn how to build Drones from scratch by real Aerospace engineers and maintenance engineers.
This programs arms candidates with pivotal skills to fulfil roles in the heavily growing aero skills, UAV & UAS industry such as:

  • Work with RPAS/Drone manufactures.
  • Become a ACE AVATION qualified maintenance personal.
  • Automatically be eligible to take part in ACORDIUM programs.

Bundle this with our RePL Program for a $600 discount. ($4000 total)

Facts

  • The drone industry is rapidly growing. Each year more and more drones are being bought. Here are some estimates for sales from 2015. In 2016, this is expected to DOUBLE!
  • To maintain and service these drones are expensive and a service that is hard to find these days with long wait times.
  • Drone Racing will be the next big spectator sport. There has already been a $1,000,000 race in 2016 and it’s set to get bigger and more common in the future!

Through taking this program, you will be able to put together a small copter and know the basics of the UAV & UAS systems which then becomes your building block to work on towards becoming a maintenance technician.
Upon successful completion, you can join ACORDIUM to grow your experience as an intern.
