The RPA industry in Australia is one of the fastest growing sectors of aviation. Technology advances over the last five years have enabled state of the art robotic aerial vehicles to be within the easy reach of the average persons finances.

The machines are controlled by sophisticated intelligent auto pilot hardware integrated with remote control access through standard handheld devices.

There is very little skill required to operate them as the computer 'brains' of the RPA takes care of everything, the remote pilot simply makes the inputs on the controls and the brains do the rest. Limitless opportunities
