Sub 2kg Drone Licence

So you’ve just bought a drone and are excited about getting out into some nice open spaces to fly it. Those that have just dipped their toes into this exciting and ever-growing hobby will most likely have a drone that is 2KG or less in weight and which therefore is not for commercial use. While you might have intentions to try and generate an income from it, it is worth taking a step back and considering gaining a sub 2kg drone licence.

Sub 2KG Drone Course Online

AS a CASA drone training school, the team here at Droneit offer a wealth of courses and knowledge that will help pilots of all levels of capability and skill to take their flying to new heights. All of our courses meet QBE standards and are, unsurprisingly, CASA certified.

How to Fly A Sub 2kg Drone

Our light commercial course can be completed very quickly, within 2-3 days for the majority of students, and after completing a half-day practical assessment and training, you are good to go. Not only is our learning system streamlined for ease of use and understanding, but our team is comprised entirely of expert drone pilots, all of whom are commercial-qualified pilots. Rest assured, no matter what knowledge gap you have, or additional insights you require, we have all bases covered.

The nice thing about starting a new hobby is that you will most likely undertake the learning and education part of it on your own and this journey of exploration can be made even more fulfilling when what you have picked up affords you larger incremental jumps in your ability to pilot the drone.

Sub 2kg drone training is a great way for you to move your learning up a notch and open the door to new possibilities. Once you are certified this will enable you to get insured to fly drones commercially in this category. Perhaps you just want to make a few bucks on the weekend to bolster your primary income, what better way to achieve this by making it possible to make money while you fly your drone?

Naturally, the capabilities of a sub 2kg drone will be limited compared to some of the more sophisticated models beyond that weight limit, but regardless, this does not mean that opportunities are not there. Best of all, once you have completed the course, this is a fantastic means to advertising your abilities and making you that bit more attractive than any of the other hobbyists in your area.

Fly drones commercially as a Light Commercial Pilot

The Sub 2Kg Light Commercial course is a great way for hobbyists to enter the drone industry and get insured to fly drones commercially under 2Kg. We have stripped out important information from the full commercial course (RePL) in order to suit your needs to operate in Australia. 

 The Sub 2Kg Light Commercial course offers online theory modules through videos, manuals, access to additional resources and quizzes in easy to follow modules which can be completed in your own time. 

 Upon completion of your online competency, a one day practical assessment can be booked in your nearest capital city in order to complete your practical flight assessment. 

 Once the one day assessment is complete, the team at Droneit will give a Certificate of Competency and send you the appropriate next steps in order for you to get insured. Completion of the Sub 2Kg Light Commercial Course will allow you get insured and to fly any multi-rotor <2 however you will still have restrictions to further exemptions (e.g. flying at night) and the ability to fly in restricted airspaces (e.g. helipads, airports etc). 

 In order to get access to flying in these restricted areas and exemptions, the full Commercial Course (RePL) is required to be completed. Droneit also offers this course and your Sub 2Kg Light Commercial course will be applied as financial credit towards your RePL licence if you decide to upgrade.
