AeroMedical Decision Making for sUAS in Controlled Airspace


Course Description

While you may daydream a little while driving your car, flying an aircraft is different and takes mental concentration. There’s a process that helps you keep your thoughts in check and re-assesses your flight operation before it becomes a liability to you and others. Some examples we’ll discuss will be general knowledge and others will be new to many who have yet to push themselves beyond their comfort level. Drugs, alcohol, and other physiological factors that can affect your ability to fly safely are all part of this class section. There are a series of courses a commercial sUAS operator will need to take to become knowledgeable to pass the FAA written test and receive certification to fly legally. This is just one of them.
