For many matriculants and University graduates, the choice to spend a ‘gap year’ figuring out their future is an increasingly popular choice.

After years of studying and being ‘told what to do’ the appeal to do your own thing is almost a universal desire.

Yet in an increasingly complex and competitive global job market having experiences and technical skills can literally give you wings to an amazing future. The sky is literally the limit.

So, instead of heading overseas and working odd jobs, becoming an ‘Au Pair”, Yacht Deckhand, camp counsellor or spending the year waiting tables – why not invest in becoming a qualified drone pilot by securing your Remote Pilot License (RPL).

What is an RPL?

An RPL is the qualification and license you need to fly a drone for professional purposes by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA). By securing your RPL, you’re able to augment your current career path, or to grow further into the technology space.

Having a license to operate drones for a drone company or operator is increasingly critical an in-demand skill with thousands of jobs opening across the world. Plus, if you’re looking to study further in technology, engineering or follow a STEM career path – having a drone license distinguishes you.
