DRONE TRAINING & COURSES
What is an RPAS?
RPAS stands for Remotely Piloted Aircraft System or in common terms is a 'drone'. If you want to fly a drone commercially that's larger than 2KG then you'll require a Remote Pilots Licence or RePL.
Victorian UAS offers two methods of gaining an RePL, a quarterly intensive course and an online course both with the same end CASA certified licence. We also offer an RPAS mapping course along with a range of RPAS type training courses.
Our head office is based in Warrnambool, Victoria although we do travel all over the country. If you'd like to become a certified drone pilot, get in touch with us!
What commercial services does Victorian UAS offer?
The team at VUAS have a background in landscape architecture and environmental science. Because of this our main areas of work are drone mapping, surveying, inspection and aerial imaging working in industries such as agriculture, environmental research/monitoring, engineering & surveying (if you're not one of these industries, don't worry there are too many subsets to list but we can probably help you out!).
The outputs we can produce surrounding mapping include Orthomosaic, 3D DSM, 3D DTM, Geotiffs, Volumetrics and a whole host of other acronyms that will boggle your mind. If you're not sure if we will be able to assist you, give us a quick call.
Our other specialty is custom development. We have worked on a multitude of platforms (terrestrial, marine and aerial) to suit unique and specific tasks such as inspection solutions, field robotics and both fixed-wing and multi-rotor ready to fly custom drone/RPAS builds.
Australia has some of the best regulations in the world allowing a broad range of potential applications for RPAS. From agriculture to search and rescue, photography to pest control we have the space and the need for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) to operate safely and legally in Australian skies.
VUAS provide solutions for businesses and individuals to leverage this exciting new technology through a range of training and consulting services. As one of the first RePL training providers we have been working in the industry for the past four years and have developed one of the most comprehensive RePL courses available and have assisted hundreds of our past students get their drone licence & make a start in the industry.
Our RePL training is conducted using our dedicated training platforms in both fixed-wing and multi=rotor categories. These RPAS systems have been specifically designed to give the best range of experience to new operators and allow them to safely transition into other commercial platforms.
We also provide a wide variety of commercial services that range from proof of concept and technique development for new areas of the industry to drone mapping, inspection & aerial photography services.
Our goal is to help the Australian RPAS industry grow by providing training and support for those starting out and linking them with our Australian referral network of developers of drone technologies and associated equipment. This will link newly qualified drone pilots with the appropriate equipment for the task, growing the industry for all.
