There is no minimum age to hold an RePL, but you must be at least 17years of age to hold an AROC. All RePL holders also require an English Language Proficiency (ELP).
Besides the minimum age and a general proficiancy in English, there are no pre-requisites.
The course is not difficult, and we strive to ensure every pilot gets the dedicated training they require. Some students do need additional training, and within reason we do not charge additional fees.
The Wicked Copters Virtual Classroom has been approved by CASA. We utilise purpose built TV-like studios for our Virtual Classroom with backups available for power and internet. To deliver interactive online face-to-face training, we use high tech hardware used for media broadcasting to TV.
The studios have sound boards with high quality microphones and advanced noise reduction systems. The content you see is not a shared desktop but multiple computers, tablets and electronic white boards to provide you with a high tech course. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone combined with a speaker and microphone.
Most of our Virtual Classroom sessions will have two Instructors (each in their own studio) for redundancy.
