All you need to know about the process required to obtain your RPA Operator’s Certificate (ReOC) from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA)
The RPA operator’s certificate is what allows a company or individual to work for, hire or reward with an RPA – remotely piloted aircraft. If you wish to fly a remotely piloted aircraft in Australia which is outside of the excluded categories, then you must be licensed by CASA.
The excluded categories information refers to an amendment which was passed as of 29 September 2016 which reduces the cost and legal requirements for lower-risk remotely piloted aircraft (RPA). For more information on these amendments, please read this information on CASA’s website.
