Damien holds a Commercial pilot’s license, a Grade 1 Flight Instructor rating and Taecert 4 Training and Assessment. This is accompanied by a multi engine command instrument rating, and sub 25kg MR + Night Powered lift sub 25kg qualifications.
He is responsible for training the students, deploying rapid Reoc for clients, growing academy development and assisting in new proposals and submissions to CASA. Damien also helps Darren to create and develop new training courses. At Rippercorp, Damien loves learning new things about the drone industry and Ripper is always looking at getting the latest in drone technology, so to be a part of that is always exciting.
Outside of work, you’ll find Damien riding his prized motorbike, flying planes (which he still does professionally on the weekends), rowing single skulls to keep fit and spending time with family and friends.
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.
