Learn how to create and submit approval application packs for EVLOS operations.

Purpose of EVLOS approval training

Operating Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) outside of the Visual Line of Sight of the Remote Pilot requires approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). The EVLOS (Extended Visual Line of Sight) approval allows flight outside the Remote Pilot’s Visual Line of Sight by utilising internally trained observers. The Extended Visual Line of Sight approval covers RPAS operations Australia Wide.

Operations under Extended Visual Line of Sight require a Remote Pilot with a pass in the CASA IREX (Instrument rating exam) or approved alternate to be present during operations.
