Brad Mason is Ripper’s RPAS Instructor/Assessor and has qualifications in the following:
The story of how Brad got into the drone industry involves being forced into a career change after experiencing a work injury (many moons ago) and recognising that helicopters were his second passion. He developed a drone from a model helicopter, taught himself how to fly it and then applied to CASA for a licence. That was back in 2002, the same year that CASA promulgated the first drone regulations, so he’s been in the industry ever since the start of commercial drone operations in Australia.
Working with Ripper comes with many benefits, but the below are the ones that Brad loves most about what Ripper does:
AI enhanced flight operations are pretty special and will continue to break new ground, and Ripper Corporation is right there at the forefront of it which is great for Brad to be a part of. Their Koala spotting operations at night, particularly the recent water-based flight ops, demonstrate a level of operating experience that is second to none, and highlights the efficiency and efficacy of drones over conventional environmental research methods.
Drones and drone technology are in an era of innovation. RipperCorp is the team leading that innovation from the front. You can view our courses and their upcoming dates or request a callback to engage us for drone operations.
