      REMOTE PILOT LICENSE | FLY YOUR DRONE SAFELY & LEGALLY IN SA

      Facilitated by Heli-X Cape Town (Pty) Ltd – CAA/0163

      Our Remote Pilot Licence (RPL) course provides pilots with the knowledge and practical skills that are necessary to safely and efficiently operate unmanned aircraft commercially.

      PLEASE NOTE: As per the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), in order to fly a drone for commercial purposes, after obtaining the RPL, one needs to either take the next step and get the Remote Operator Certificate (ROC), or partner with an existing company and operate under their ROC in order to conform under CAA legislation. Gaining the RPL is part of this process.
