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

There are four different drone types that are used for commercial drone work; Multirotor, Fixed Wing, Powered Lift (VTOL) and Helicopter. Each of these drone types require a separate endorsement. A single endorsement is provided during as part of a standard Level 1 Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) course. Additional endorsements may be completed later as needed. Aviassist RPAS training covers use of the drone type and is independent of the type of sensor that may be used for drone photography, drone mapping or drone surveying.
