About Us

Our journey to comprehensive drone training

Established in 2008, Aviassist is a Civil Aviation Safety Authority certified company specialising in drone training and dedicated to providing aviation expertise to Australian Business. We describe ourselves as “your partner in aviation” and our motto “facilitating flight” describes our commitment to ensuring any aviation activity can be made straight forward and stress free for our partners.

Aviassist began its journey as an experience base of professional pilots, providing flight crew for Aeromedical, Aerial Survey and Corporate Charter. Sharing our knowledge with the next generation of commercial pilots, aviation training was incorporated, providing real world experience to aspiring flight crew.

Since Aviassist was founded, remotely piloted aircraft technology and associated applications have begun to rapidly evolve, making these new aircraft financially viable for a large range of commercial applications. Aviassist has evolved into a company embracing remotely piloted aircraft and has pioneered custom drone training solutions for commercial drone operations.

Aviassist has grown into a company that conducts regular drone training and piloted aviation theory courses Australia wide. We specialise in training those with little or no exposure to aviation and have many years and thousands of hours of real-world experience to share.

Aviassist is passionate about promoting safe aviation activities and increasing business efficiency through the use of the latest technology. Civil Aviation Safety Authority approved and independently audited, Aviassist is your first choice for professional drone training.
