Interest in Drones and RPAS training

Conducting drone training in Perth with Aviassist fits perfectly.

Most rewarding aspect of working at Aviassist

Liam finds the most rewarding part of the RPAS Instructor role “is when a student is struggling with any component of our training, and then you spend a bit more time helping them, seeing them finally understand or learn the task at hand, is most rewarding”

Further developments in drone applications

Liam looks forward to seeing drones being regularly used in the emergency service roles.

drone training instructor brisbane

Aviation Background

Irwin gained his Commercial Pilot Licence (Helicopter) in 2008. His first commmercial flying job was a with Ardmore Helicopters in Auckland. He spent a few years gaining experience before completing an instructor rating and continued with Ardmore Helicopters as an instructor. From there Irwin moved to Australia, basing himself on the Sunshine Coast to train foreign military pilots. Before joining Aviassist in 2017, Irwin was a helicopter pilot for an exclusive island resort outside of Cairns. With thousands of hours flying and instructing Irwin brings considerable aviation experience to the Aviassist team.

Interest in Drones and RPAS training

Irwin’s interest in RPAS training was piqued when seeing an Aviassist job advertisement for an RPAS Instructor. Understanding the industry was in its infancy and seeing what Aviassist was wanting to achieve, Irwin aspired to get in at ground level and help shape its RPAS industry future.

Favourite subject to train

Irwin’s favourite subject to train is Metereology followed closely by Aerodynamics. Irwin says that he has “Always liked Met, mainly because it is something we can’t control so knowing how things work can make your day a lot easier or a lot harder!”

Most rewarding aspect of working at Aviassist

Irwin find the most rewarding part of the RPAS Instructor role is “getting a student over the line that doesn’t think they have what it takes, or building up someone’s confidence to be a good pilot always makes me happy”

Further developments in drone applications

Irwin believes with an increase in airspace integration, applications replacing high risk piloted aircraft activities will become the norm.

Aviassist is proud of our passionate and professional team. Rowan Kimber is a commercial RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) Instructor and piloted Fixed Wing Instructor. Rowan has a Bachelor of Law (honours) and is an award winning lawyer specialised in Aviation and drone regulation. Based in Melbourne, Rowan leads Aviassist drone training Melbourne including regional Victoria and Tasmania.

Drone training instructor Melbourne

Aviation Background

Rowan commenced flying in 2001 at RMIT University in Melbourne. His first commercial flying gig was as a volunteer glider tow pilot in Benalla, Victoria. Rowan went on to work as a flight instructor in Melbourne prior to flying twins in the Torres Strait. Moving to Townsville, Rowan worked as a flight instructor and charter pilot. Rowan progressed to become the Chief Pilot of the charter side of the business and spent several years flying around North Queensland in various types of general aviation aircraft. After some time in the legal profession, Rowan joined the Aviassist team in September 2017 as a RPAS instructor based in Melbourne. Rowan is also the proud owner of a De havilland Tiger Moth, a World War 2 training aircraft.

Interest in drones and RPAS training

Rowan believes that RPAS are the natural progression for the aviation industry and will, in the not too distant future, replace all prior forms of aviation. He would like to help shape this new side of the aviation industry and help RPAS become the successful tool they are capable of.

Favourite subject to train

Naturally Rowan favours air law. The reason Rowan became a lawyer was that he was working as a Chief Pilot, responsible for legislative compliance, and had little idea what the legislation was actually saying. It is easy to naively think that the law is a simple common sense reading of the legislation. The more law Rowan learnt, the more he realised what the law actually required and the liability imposed on everyone involved in air operations.

Rowan states ” Everyday I hear about operators who see the law as nonsense barrier to their commercial endeavours. The legislation is there for a reason and doesn’t need to be a barrier.” The way Rowan sees it, know the requirements and use them to your commercial advantage.  Stay safe, stay compliant, stay in the air.

Most rewarding aspect of working at Aviassist

Rowan loves the classroom. Every week there is a moment where students understand why he loves aviation so much and they begin to want to know more and more. By the end of the class they ask how they can get their piloted aircraft licence, at that point he says he knows that he has done his job. Rowan goes on to say “These people are the ones who will help shape the drone industry in a positive way” and Rowan believes it is his job to point them in the right direction.

Further developments in drone applications

Rowan sees further development similar to piloted aviation. Rowan states that he “thinks it is time for drones to become certified so they can operate in close proximity to people, property and aircraft. I’d like to work on certifying something that will properly mix with piloted aviation”
