Upgrading your RePL (Remote Pilot Licence)

An RePL authorises the holder to operate remote aircraft in a particular category and weight of aircraft.

<7kg <7kg <7kg <7kg
<25kg <25kg <25kg <25kg
Per aircraft type Per aircraft type per aircraft type Per aircraft type

An RePL can be upgraded to include another aircraft type or increase the weight capability within an existing aircraft category. Aviassist schedules training sessions to upgrade your RePL for Multirotor 25kg, Fixed Wing 7kg and Powered Lift 7kg.

RePL upgrade from 7kg Multirotor to 25kg Multirotor

Upgrading your 7kg Multirotor RePL to 25kg increases the options of aircraft and payload, substantially increasing capability in the field. Many commercial off the shelf remote aircraft are above the 7kg limitation imposed by many initial RePLs.

Upgrade training for Multirotor 25kg is conducted using Aviassist fleet of DJI Matrice 600 Pro, a hexacopter with a Maximum Take off weight of 15.5 kilograms. There is no additional theory or theory examination to increase the weight category from 7kg to 25kg though a detailed brief will be conducted on the aircraft.

We begin training where the initial RePL finished, confirming competency on the DJI Phantom 4. From here we go through a training package on the DJI Matrice 600 Pro before completing a flight test. On successful completion of the flight test your licence submission is made to CASA to upgrade the RePL to the higher weight category.

Training is planned over a day and a half and is competency based. Price for the RePL upgrade is $1250 including GST. See scheduled training dates and locations

Fixed Wing 7kg

Fixed wing remote aircraft offer a substantial increase in efficiency, covering a larger area in a shorter amount of time.

Upgrade training for Fixed Wing 7kg is conducted using Aviassist’s fleet of Sensefly Ebee, a proven platform with intuitive ground control software. A two hour brief is conducted via our Online Live virtual classroom to maximise time spent in the field. The brief covers all aspects of Fixed Wing aircraft in general and specific type information relevant to the training aircraft. A short examination is conducted prior to heading out to the field to perform the practical component of the RePL upgrade.

Training is planned over a day and a half and is competency based. Price for the RePL upgrade is $1250 including GST. See scheduled training dates and locations

Powered Lift 7kg

Powered Lift aircraft bring together the efficiency of a fixed wing with the vertical take off and landing capabilities of a Multirotor type aircraft.

Upgrade training for Powered Lift 7kg is conducted using Aviassist’s fleet of Wingtra Wingta One or Quantum System Trinity F90 platforms. The Wingtra is a tailsitter type design and the Trinity is a tiltrotor type design. We suggest training on the design closest to the one you plan to operate. A two hour brief is conducted via our Online Live virtual classroom to maximise time spent in the field. The brief covers all aspects of Powered Lift aircraft in general and specific type information relevant to the training aircraft. A short examination is conducted prior to heading out to the field to perform the practical component of the RePL upgrade.

Training is planned over a day and a half and is competency based. Price for the RePL upgrade is $1250 including GST. See scheduled training dates and locations
