Established in 2008, Aviassist is a Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) certified company specialising in the training and application of remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS), for commercial business purposes. Aviassist is committed to offering comprehensive education and training to ensure safety and proficiency when operating RPAS.
Aviassist’s journey began as an experience base of professional pilots, providing flight crew for Aeromedical, Aerial Survey and Corporate Charter. Sharing a wealth of knowledge with the next generation of commercial pilots, aviation training was incorporated to provide authentic experiences to aspiring flight crew.
A shift in airspace-use with the development and increased use and demand of RPAS, saw a reciprocated need for specific training to promote safe and educated use. Aviassist shifted their focus to embrace RPAS and pioneered custom training solutions for their commercial operation.
Aviassist’s managing director, Ross Anderson, is responsible for developing one of the very first commercial drone courses to be recognised by CASA.
With 18 years aviation experience, Ross is passionate about the aviation industry and ensuring that the company stays abreast of the constantly evolving technologies and protocols, whilst maintaining innovative and engaging training courses.
