For all your drone training needs.

Here at RPA Skills we provide the drone industry with our exciting one-day 101 RPA Flight Management course. We also conduct 102 Flight test assessments for new and current 102 operators for 141 certified providers across NZ. As drone operators, we recognise the importance of providing the industry with a high quality training programmes for operators whether it be multirotors or fixed wing aircraft.

I also operate as chief pilot for WSP NZ, where we operate under our 102 UAOC exposition to fly in many different and challenging environments. Training with us means you'll receive real world flight instruction from real operators with 30yrs of flying experience. 


CAA Approved Training Provider and NOTAM issuer for 101 operations

One of the benefits of training with us is that you will be instructed by a CAA / NZQA-qualified instructor with over 30 years of experience who understands the operating parameters of this technology. Whether it be multirotor or fixed-wing applications we provide a solid and robust experience for your business needs.

As of 2023, we are pleased to provide 101 operators a Notam service. This allows operators to fly above 400 feet. Get in touch to discuss your flight needs.

As a qualified educator and HSE specialist, I bring many years of experience into the fold of RPA Skills, providing hazard and risk management techniques that will assist with meeting legislation and strengthen the RPA operator’s duties under current health and safety legislation.

So why should you be training your staff?

Health and Safety compliance is top of mind these days:

As of the 4th of April 2016 all Employers (PCBU's) must ensure staff are trained in the safe use of all tools and equipment in the workplace. After completing the flight test you will have a certificate of competency to meet this legal obligation for your company. Clients are required to ensure contractors suitably qualified to operate equipment and undertake the works performed, we are happy to help you meet this responsibility.


It's just a flying camera right?

With this equipment in trained hands you have an amazing cost effective risk mitigating and time saving device that is world leading. By using drones and exploring new ways of using these aircraft we have seen so many new ideas and possibilities. While attending the course you get to discuss and share ideas where these tools could be utilized. A flying camera is just the beginning.
