This is one of the Best points about being involved with Drones either as a fun experience or as a profession. With the FAA managing the airspace and drones operating as a commercial endeavor there are rules and there are penalties for breaking them.
Fun Terms. Take a quick survey some of the topics covered in Becoming a professional in the Aviation Industry
Performance is a term used to describe the ability of an aircraft to accomplish certain things that make
it useful for certain purposes.
The primary factors most affected by performance are the takeoff and landing distance, rate of climb,
ceiling, payload, range, speed, maneuverability, stability, and fuel economy.
Stability is the inherent quality of an aircraft to correct for conditions that may disturb its equilibrium
and to return to or to continue on the original flight path. It is primarily an aircraft design
Weight and Balance
Compliance with the weight and balance limits of any aircraft is critical to flight safety. Operating
above the maximum weight limitation compromises the structural integrity of an aircraft and adversely
affects its performance. Operation with the center of gravity (CG) outside the approved limits results in
control difficulty. The aircraft’s weight and balance data is important information for a pilot that must
be frequently reevaluated.
A remote pilot is responsible for the safe operation of the small UA at all times. A remote pilot must
ensure that the aircraft is in a safe operating condition before flight, that there is not any hazard to
persons or property, and that all required crew members are properly briefed on the operation and
Physiological/Medical Factors that Affect Pilot Performance
Important medical factors that a pilot should be aware of include the following:
• the effects of alcohol and drugs
Aeronautical decision-making (ADM)
The importance of good pilot judgment,
Aeronautical Decision Making and
Risk Management are topics that the FAA is required to test an applicant about for the issuance of an
