UAV Manufacturer Training

What is Manufacturer’s Training?

Manufacturers Training or Type Training is training that is provided on a specific brand and weight class of Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) or “drone”. It serves two purposes:

  • To familiarise the pilot with the unique characteristics of a particular airframe
  • To allow the pilot the required certification to fly in a particular weight class

Our Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot, Visual Line of Sight) course includes Manufacturer’s Type Training on sub seven kilogram airframes. Our training is on the DJI Phantom 4 and DJI Inspire 1 or 2 airframes. In effect this allows professional pilots to fly any multi-rotor airframe under seven kilograms.

For students wishing to fly RPAS above 7 kilograms, we offer a one day sub 25kg Type Training course conducted on DJI’s Matrice 600 airframe (M600).
