RPAS Training – Which aircraft type endorsement is right for you?

Three different aircraft types are used for commercial drone work; Multirotors, Fixed Wing and Helicopters. Each of these aircraft types requires a separate endorsement. A single endorsement is provided as part of a standard Level 1 Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) course and additional endorsements may be added to your course or completed later when needed. The endorsement covers use of the aircraft type and is independent of the type of sensor that may be used for drone photography, drone mapping or drone surveying.

This table shows what aircraft types are in common use for different commercial drone applications.
