This ACS book from the FAA lists the standards and requirements for the Remote Pilot Certificate, issued for operating drones and small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. The new Airman Certification Standards are ideal for checkride preparation, and will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during the checkride. For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System. Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant's understanding, knowledge, risk management considerations, and performance of each task. As always, ASA delivers authentic, accurate, and reliable FAA documents exactly as provided by the FAA. One noticeable change is that the FAA has adapted the size and format of the ACS so that it lists everything an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.

The utility and benefits of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are emerging and being recognized across the aviation industry. While this technology is not new, the ability to support domestic public and private operators is becoming better understood and opening up new uses to government organizations and commercial enterprise. Analysis of the unmanned aviation market indicates that small UAS (sUAS) will become the most prevalent and affordable form of unmanned aircraft available, featuring technology developed by contributors ranging from DIY and hobby model aircraft communities to defense contracting. This book will help readers understand what a drone or UAS is, what forms are available (including multirotor, fixed-wing, and hybrid types), to make well-informed decisions regarding purchase and use. Readers will learn how sUAS and their various configuration options can be used to address or support evolving business needs. Ultimately, readers will have enough information to formulate a plan to acquire necessary certification approvals and operate sUAS in a safe, efficient, and effectivemanner. Beginning with the history of UAS and ending with how to prepare for the future of this fast-paced and innovative industry, this book contains descriptions of typical sUAS architecture, related technology, common uses, and suggested safety practices, while also providing a narrative to help you determine the most appropriate path forward through complex legal, business, operational, and support considerations. Understanding how these pieces fit together, from the technical and legal perspectives, will shape your own strategy for the safe, efficient, and effective use of this "(r)evolutionary" technology. The authors developed this book to share critical background, concepts, guidance, and lessons learned from their collective experience as researchers, operators, and academic instructors to dispel common myths and provide a starting point to explore how sUAS can be applied to solve challenges and support economic pursuits. Written for experienced aviators, as well as those new to aviation and operating in the National Airspace System (NAS). Illustrated extensively throughout, each chapter concludes with review questions for classroom and self-study use; glossary and index included. This book provides a solid foundation for keeping up with this fast moving and exciting aviation field.

Intelligent Autonomy of UAVs

Advanced Missions and Future Use

Author: Yasmina Bestaoui Sebbane

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1351339397

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 404

View: 3353

Intelligent Autonomy of UAVs: Advanced Missions and Future Use provides an approach to the formulation of the fundamental task typical to any mission and provides guidelines of how this task can be solved by different generic robotic problems. As such, this book aims to provide a systems engineering approach to UAV projects, discovering the real problems that need to be resolved independently of the application. After an introduction to the rapidly evolving field of aerial robotics, the book presents topics such as autonomy, mission analysis, human-UAV teams, homogeneous and heterogeneous UAV teams, and finally, UAV-UGV teams. It then covers generic robotic problems such as orienteering and coverage. The book next introduces deployment, patrolling, and foraging, while the last part of the book tackles an important application: aerial search, tracking, and surveillance. This book is meant for both scientists and practitioners. For practitioners, it presents existing solutions that are categorized according to various missions: surveillance and reconnaissance, 3D mapping, urban monitoring, precision agriculture, forestry, disaster assessment and monitoring, security, industrial plant inspection, etc. For scientists, it provides an overview of generic robotic problems such as coverage and orienteering; deployment, patrolling and foraging; search, tracking, and surveillance. The design and analysis of algorithms raise a unique combination of questions from many fields, including robotics, operational research, control theory, and computer science.

Drone Operator's Logbook

Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform

ISBN: 9781519653604

Federal Aviation Regulations, COA, & Section 333 Exemption Compliant. This logbook has been specifically designed to be compliant with 14 CFR 61.51, Section 333 exemptions, and COA logbook requirements. Easy COA Reporting. If you have MULTIPLE aircraft, this will NOT work. Buy one logbook for each drone. The FAA requires that commercial operators who have 333 exemptions and "blanket" COA's to file monthly reports. It is EXTREMELY annoying to log all this information and then send it in via email. If you have one drone per logbook, do not have any takeoff or landing damage, equipment malfunctions, or lost link events, you could simply make scans of the pages for the month and email them into the FAA. The COA's say, "number of flights (per location, per aircraft)" & "total aircraft operational hours[.]" The columns only support one aircraft; however, recreational flyers could list multiple aircraft because they are currently not required to report. Disclaimer: Current FAA "blanket" COAs say "must submit the following information" and do not explicitly say scans are acceptable. The FAA could issue guidance in the future further clarifying the mode of report (text in email vs. scan in email). It is up to YOU to keep up to date on this. The FAA or Law Enforcement Can Request Your Logbook. 14 C.F.R. § 61.51(i) says, "Persons must present their pilot certificate, medical certificate, logbook, or any other record required by this part for inspection upon a reasonable request by" the FAA, an authorized representative from the National Transportation Safety Board, or any Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer. If your electronic logbook is on your device, do you really want to give law enforcement or the FAA your device? Furthermore, how are you to get the data off that device? Insurance. When you apply for insurance, they will ask you to fill out a form that is going to ask for all sorts of information. A logbook will assist you in filling out the form so you can receive the most accurate quote. Marketing. Showing a completed logbook to a potential customer is a great marketing point. Like the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words," a good logbook is worth a thousand flights. You can quickly demonstrate your flight experience by flipping through the pages. Furthermore, a well-kept and orderly logbook gives the impression that you are a professional. Required in Other Countries. Other countries such as South Africa require the drone logbook to be in paper. Paper is the current industry standard. Going for a Certificate/Rating. Individuals can use this logbook to apply their experience towards UAS certificates / ratings. While the FAA is still working on creating certificates and ratings, you can prepare for the future by logging everything now. Less Cumbersome. If you are marketing to a potential client, you can scan pages of your logbook and send it to them. It is more cumbersome to get the data off a phone or website. Very Little Problems. What happens if your phone is stolen, water damaged, battery dies, or there is poor cell phone signal? Paper does not need a cell signal or batteries. No Data Theft. You don't have to worry about data theft like you would with a website or an app. Fidelity. Electronic logbooks can be changed while pen and paper is permanent.
