sUAS Flight Management Checklists Mobile App
The sUAS Flight Management Checklists app is a useful tool for piloting a small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS).
How does it work?
An sUAS is defined as a system consisting of an unmanned aircraft or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) weighing less than 55 pounds. This app consists of three primary components - a planning checklist, a pre-flight checklist, and an emergency management checklist. The checklist checks items that ensure sUAS operations comply with drone regulations established by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The app prompts the user to ensure that the drone is registered with the FAA, that the aircraft bears the FAA registration number, the weather reports are obtained prior to flight (including wind speed, wind direction, etc.), that flight restrictions are checked prior to flight and more. The app includes emergency management procedures such as reporting crashes and contacting the appropriate authorities in the event of an accident or injury. Drone flight can be fun and it can be a valuable tool for many businesses, but when one goes to fly a drone, it must be done safely and in accordance with drone regulations.
