“The footage was outstanding”

Above OZ offers a unique mix of expertise in aviation, with years of experience in the film and television world. From our roots in the creation of moving images, we answered the call for aerial vision by developing Above Oz.

Now, as Adelaide’s leading RPAS company we have developed an impressive client list, shooting TV programs, advertisements and corporate promotional videos nation wide. But with demand from a wide range of clients we are now flying missions for scientific research with leading universities, real estate, geological photogrammetry, local councils, car racing; the applications of remote flying continue to grow.

With so much expertise on hand, the logical next step was to teach others in this exciting new industry. We are now CASA certified to teach the Remote Pilot License (RePL) course, so whether you are a scientist, electrical linesman, farmer, cinematographer, miner or school leaver, we can train you as a professional pilot in this fast growing industry.

 Let’s get the language sorted out: These three terms all mean the same thing!

The familiar name the general public and the media use. This name is not favoured by the aviation industry..

UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle)
An industry term that includes hot air balloons and other aerial vehicles as well as drones. This term is now being phased out.

RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems)
The correct industry name being phased in globally. The term RPAS includes the hand controllers, while the aircraft itself is an RPA.
