Always wanted to get your RPL license? Here's your chance!
United Drone Holdings now offer RPL training in both Johannesburg and Durban!
This course consists of two sections, theory and practical. The theory takes place over seven days covering topics such as Air law, Human performance, Meteorology, Navigation, Radio links, Construction and Flight, Battery procedures, restricted radio telephony and English proficiency. Followed by each subject, there will be a multiple choice test (pass rate : 75%).
If you are already SACAA accredited (PPL & CPL pilots), then you will be exempted from the courses from Day 1 - 4 since it has already been covered. You can thus attend from Day 5. Theory classes take place at Hanger #25 Eagle's Creek Aviation Estate in Tshwane or at the BAC Helicopters Facility in Durban.
The practical course runs for five days plus a day for the DFE (Designated Flight Examiner) test. Practical training takes place at Hanger #25 Eagle's Creek Aviation Estate in Tshwane or at the BAC Helicopters Facility in Durban.
