AVI30316 – Certificate III in
Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight)

Remote pilot duties include applying technical and non-technical aviation skills and knowledge within RPAS operational environments. This qualification forms some of the requirements for certification by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) as described in Civil Aviation Safety Regulation (CASR) Part 101 Division 101.F.3 Certification of UAV controllers.

As drones are becoming more accessible and their versatility and practicality becoming more apparent the need for commercial remote pilots is skyrocketing. With the Australian Security Academy, you can study your Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilots- Visual Line of Sight).
