The Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate (AROC) allows you to use an Air Band Radio.
The AROC course is independent of the Remote Pilot Licence (UAV Controller Certificate or Drone Licence). This means you do not require the radio certificate to complete the RPAS drone training course and receive your drone licence (RePL).
If you decide to obtain your own, or work under someone else’s Remote Operator Certificate (ReOC or UOC), the Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate is highly recommended for drone pilots covered under that operation in controlled airspace or near non-towered aerodromes.
You are required to obtain the English Language Proficiency as well to be able to apply for your AROC from CASA. We are able to provide both the AROC and ELP training / assessments. On successful completion of both, we submit your application to CASA for you and cover the CASA fees in our cost.
