Remote Piloted Aircraft – Sub 2Kg VLOS (visual line-of sight) Flight Training

New England Avionics is taking a different approach to RPA Sub 2Kg training, we are offering on-site training for Landowners or Lease Holders.

Our training teaches you how to integrate DJI Drones into your business. The advantages of on-site training is that our combination of  basic theory of flying safely on your property and your CASA requirements are covered and you get a minimum of 1 hour of one on one practical flying.

Learning to calibrate and fly drones for the first time can be challenging, there is lots of information and flight laws to understand. New England Avionics has taken our 100+ flight hours experience and expert knowledge and distilled it into an easy to understand half day, full day and 2 day advanced course that covers the basics of what you need to know to fly your RPA safely and legally on your property.

With the new legislation changes CASA has announced for land owners for 29th September 2016. We will be offering advanced drone technology for land owners in the New England Tablelands area. We are currently working on different types uses for drones and their custom training procedures to suit the Agriculture, Local Emergency Services and Renewable Energy Industry.
