UAV Industries is an authorised provider of the following ratings for your Remote Pilot Licence (RPL):


All students undertake the multi-rotor qualification, allowing pilots easy access into the professional world of drones.


Highly specialised drone rating, allowing expert drone operators to operate heavier payloads over shorter periods. Mainly focused on precision camera work.


Longer duration, surveillance type drone missions require fixed-wing airframes. Offering more flight time and distance.

UAV Industries can also provide additional ratings with regards to limitations of operations:

  • VLOS (Visual Line of Sight): up to 500m away
  • E-VLOS (Extended Visual Line of Sight): up to 1km away
  • B-VLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) (In the near future)
  • Night Ratings


In addition to our drone (RPL) and Instructors course, we are the first flight school to be approved to train Observers, who are essential for flights operating close to buildings, people, public roads and National Key Points. An Observer is also used to assist the pilot with flights operational in the E-VLOS category.
