Operational Procedures

Even the shortest flight conforms to a sequence of structurally recurring actions, including the flight itself, flight preparation and de-briefing. It is important that you, as a remote pilot, comply with the given procedures and even improve them, if necessary, in order to carry out a safe and successful flight.

This chapter deals with the phases of every flight, starting with flight preparation at home and ending with the documentation after each flight. The procedures described here are mostly recommendations that you should adapt to your specific situation. It is always important to take into account the UAS operating manual, which contains vital performance information and limits, as well as instructions from the manufacturer.

The decisive factor for flight safety is: do not be careless, even after the 1436th flight, but always follow the given procedures and checklists.
