Pilot FAQ

When will there be more jobs available for drone pilots?

Jobs are available all across Australia. To access these job opportunities you need to have downloaded the free Aerologix app and fully completed your registration. Keep an eye out on the app for job invitations in your area.

What jobs can I expect to do through Aerologix?

Aerologix supports jobs for every level of drone pilot around Australia. There’s a job for all skill sets, from beginner aerial photography assignments to complex 3D mapping of construction sites and agricultural land.

What drone specifications are required to become an Aerologix pilot?

Different jobs carry different requirements. The higher-spec drone you have, the more jobs will be available to you. We require a minimum of a 20-megapixel camera for more complex jobs such as surveying and mapping. Our technology requires a certain number of pixel density to render quality data which Aerologix prides itself on. However, we insist that you have a minimum of 12-megapixels for a beginner level photography assignment.

Unsure of what drone to purchase? It can be hard to find the right drone in such a competitive market full of choices. However, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Enterprise is a great place to start. If you’re looking for a higher spec drone, we also recommend the Phantom 4 Pro V2. These drones are compatible with most jobs you may find on the Aerologix platform, including telco tower surveys.

How can I become an enterprise drone pilot?

At Aerologix, we require you to have a RePL (Remote Pilot Licence), awarded by CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority). We highly recommend that you insure yourself, which protects both you and your client. Depending on your drone, we also advise that you complete a ReOC license (Remotely piloted aircraft operators certificate), also issued by CASA.

Do I need insurance to fly with Aerologix?

Drone insurance is not critical but pilots are strongly encouraged to seek basic insurance to best protect both themselves and the clients. Head over to our partner, Precision Autonomy, to find out what insurance options are available to you.

How do I get paid for jobs?

All payments are made directly by the client into your nominated bank account(s) through our payment vendor partner, Stripe.

Are my payment details stored safely by Aerologix?

Aerologix does not handle any part of the payment process, so we do not store, record or share payments details with third parties. All payments are handled directly by our payment vendor, Stripe. We do not have access to any financial information entered into our app. Find out more about Stripe’s privacy policy here...
