Aeronautical Radio Operators Certificate (AROC)

The Qualification

  • Holding an Aircraft Radio Operator’s Certificate (AROC) is a requirement for all aviators; this includes Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) operators.
  • Consequently, it is a requirement by CASA that an AROC is held by any RePL applicant.
  • The course accredits a person to operate Radios and other relevant aviation communications equipment on-board aircraft and on the ground.
  • Successful completion will allow the student to operate in both a Standard and Emergency operating environment.
  • The AROC allows a RePL holder to gain approvals, such as the ability to fly above 120m, closer than 30m to people or fly within 5.5km of a controlled aerodrome. 
  • From September 2014 CASA requires an English Language Proficiency (ELP) test to be completed as well – this is included in our RePL course.

The Course 

  • The AROC is a component of the Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) Course, however we can offer this course separately on request
  • English Language Proficiency (ELP) conducted as part of the AROC training.
