F.A.Q

How long does the course take?

The RPL course may be completed in under 2 weeks depending on personal schedule.

May I bring my own drone to train with?

The aircraft needs to be registered with the KCAA under our training organisation in order for flight time to be logged, therefore it is not necessary to bring your own drone for training purposes.

Does an RPL qualify me to operate commercially?

The RPL license forms part of the RPAS Operators Certification. However, an RPL alone would not qualify you to run a legal commercial operation. We may assist with the ROC consultation process.

How may I Insure my drone while it is in flight?

Drone insurance requires the pilot to hold an RPL, the drone to be registered with KCAA and the flight to be conducted under an ROC.

Where am I allowed to fly my drone?

1.The drone shall be operated no less than 50m from a road, people or property. 2.The drone shall not be flown within a 10km radius of any airport or aerodrome. 3.The drone shall not be flown higher than 400ft above ground level and 500 metres in distance – Visual Line of Sight (VLOS).
