Aviassist and Officeworks partner to bring professional excluded category training

Aviassist and Officeworks have partnered to bring professional online training to Australian business taking advantage of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority’s excluded drone category. The excluded category is the perfect way for Australian business to dip their toe in utilising drones commercially.

Excluded category

The excluded category is a category of remote aircraft where no formal licence requirements exist. Commercial operators can fly remote aircraft less than 2kg and landowners up to 25kg within the standard operating conditions. Operators must register for the excluded category with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority five days prior to the commencement of commercial operations.
