The Radio Operator Course provides aviation-specific radio theory and practical knowledge for pilots, UAV/AUS pilots/operators, airfield managers and crane operators.
AROC qualified personnel can use the AROC to communicate: ground-to-tower, ground-to-air and in some cases air-to-air.
Before the course begins a candidate requires a CASA aviation reference number (ARN): http://www.casa.gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/main/manuals/regulate/fcl/form1162.pdf
If English is not the candidate’s first language, a formal language evaluation (FLE) is required. This can be booked at https://aslau.aspeqexams.com .
If English is the candidate’s first language, an expert speaker test may be conducted in house at no cost: http://www.casa.gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/main/manuals/regulate/fcl/form61-9elp.pdf
The course is delivered in four parts:
- AROC self study training from the training notes provided.
- Theory training conducted with FTA ground training staff.
- Practical training in the aircraft on the ground by a qualified flight instructor (QFI).
- Administration of the paperwork and delivery to CASA (the CASA processing fee is the responsibility of the candidate).
On successful completion of the ground theory and practical components, a CASA Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate Form, http://www.casa.gov.au/wcmswr/_assets/main/manuals/regulate/fcl/form64-roc.pdf, is sent to CASA for the issue of an AROC.
Course Cost $310
Courses are scheduled to meet the availability of the instructor and candidate.
