Victorian UAS Training to open its doors in Australia

Posted on behalf of Victorian UAS Training.

Victorian UAS Training -Commercial partners _____________________________________

Victorian UAS Training is proud to announce that after months of hard work we now ready to introduce ourselves to the industry.

The UAV industry in Australia suffers from a chronic shortage of training facilities; this means that people who want to get into the industry can’t and those that are already operating in the industry have only a small pool of potential clients.

With some of the best UAV regulations in the world there is infinite scope for the market to grow and to become a world leader in UAS technology.

This is where we hope to help by providing training to those who want to get into the industry and link them to appropriate Australian made and certified UAS technology that meets and exceeds the standards set out by CASA. This will help grow the industry by creating more customers for developers and providing them with a training solution for their current clients. We will also be able to help UAV developers produce CASA ready aircraft documentation for their platforms allowing them to give their clients a clear path through the certification process taking out all the guesswork.

Our CASA documentation is now ready to submit and we aim to be operational for training in February/March.

We are currently offering initial developer packages which feature exclusive use of our training and testing facility, a controller certificate for a member of staff and access to our referral network.

You can also reserve your spot in our courses and be one of the first to hold the new RPA level one certificate.

For more information on developer packages or to reserve your spot on one of our courses please visit:  or email us

I hope to see more and more training like this in Areas like North Dakota after the recent news coming out of the FAA about test sites.  #OnlyA3HourDrive

Me and the fiance talked about a trip to Australia next winter... Can non Australian Nations take this training course while visiting or on vacation?  Or is the course over a multiple week span?

Hi Joshua Johnson as far as Victorian UAS Training are concerned all are welcome but I will need to check if CASA (our version of the FAA) will sign off qualifications to people other than Australian citizens. I am more than happy to find out the answer to that question for you and let you know the outcome.

I would love if you could obtain that information for me Mathew!  I Greatly appreciate your dedication and efforts into assisting me deeper into the matter.

No worries that's the whole idea of this project making it simple and safer to get into the UAV industry so we will do everything we can to make that a reality.

While we are stuck with the current CASA paradigm your efforts are a God-send. Sign me up :)

The CASA regulations aren't to bad but they do lack the key ingredient of enough training organizations to make them work. Believe me CASA are as happy as you are to see us starting up because it makes their job a lot more strait forward. Keep an eye on our website as we will put up an announcement there when we are all clear to start training.

@Mathew, I'd Love to Add a Drone Training Page/Tab to my website.  Can I build the tab and add your training course first on the list?! :)  If so please message me a business contact type paragraph that I can use for my site and such.
