About Flight School

Flight School is a CASA approved RPAS flight school, owned and managed by UPG. It specialises in remote pilot training for all UAV owners.
Head office is in Brisbane, but we offer training schools in other major capital cities – Sydney and Melbourne, and Adelaide and Wollongong upon request.

The course can be conducted at a location of your choice if the minimum requirement of two students is satisfied. Other minimum requirements may be required and travel costs may be charged to the customer depending on location.

Our dedicated instructors have many years’ experience in the aviation and geospatial industry and extend this to the rapidly growing UAV (drone) market.

UPG Flight School was the first to offer a one-week training course for customers to gain their Remote Piloted Aerial System (RPAS) certification. And the good news is, you don’t need to be a UPG customer to enrol. We deliver training that ticks all the CASA boxes, in a fun, friendly, engaging 5-day course – meeting the superior safety record that the Australian aviation industry demands.

Fixed Wing or Multirotor courses are run regularly, and 2017 can be viewed below.
