Daylight Waiver performance based standards

Daylight Waiver

5 performance bases standards need to be addressed when applying for daylight waiver.    The article in Women and Drones provides helpful tips on these standards.

  1.  Method for remote pilot to maintain visual line of sight during darkness.
  2.  Provide method for remote pilot to see and avoid other aircraft, people on the ground, and avoid ground bases structures and objects during darkness
  3.  Provide a method remote pilot will be able to continuously know and determine position, altitude, attitude, and movement of their small unmanned aircraft.
  4. Provide a method to assure all required persons participating in the small unmanned aircraft operation have knowledge to recognize and overcome visual illusions caused by darkness, and understand physiological conditions which may degrade night vision.
  5. Provide a method to increase conspicuity of the small unmanned aircraft to be seen at a distance of at least 3 statute miles unless a system is in place that can avoid all non-participating aircraft.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding the application process.

Safety is our first concern.   Desi Ekstein is a licensed remote pilot and a student of the  FAA Safety Wings program.   Continued education is important in this fast changing industry.  We also offer a list of references to help you be a safe pilot.

When you fly your drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system. Under the law, your drone is an aircraft.  Drone operators are pilots and must fly responsibly and safely.   We have gone above and beyond to stay informed of the current safety regulations.

Computer programming

STEM / STEAM …. A brighter future.

First…   What is it?  STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.   STEAM add “ART”.   I believe that art is an important part to the equation and drones are the perfect tool for the job.

The knowledge and enthusiasm that the students show towards new technology is amazing!   To start the program the students are handed a box of parts.   They build the drone, computer program the RC communication, make sure it can fly, and use Tinkercad to build replacement parts.Amazon

FAA Require Registration Of All Drones

The FAA has announced that all drones will need to be registered.

FAA Drone Registration

Not all of the details have been ironed out.   But the main concern is that Christmas is right around the corner and Drones will be the big selling item this year.   It is so important to keep our airways safe!   This registration is already a requirement for those people or companies having the Section 333 exemption.     The registration system is scheduled to be in force by November 20, 2015.   That is a huge undertaking in my opinion.   Forbes explains the press conference.

It is imperative that the FAA find solutions to keeping our airways safe.    I myself have seen many post regarding people flying irresponsibly.   I am proud to surround myself with professionals in the UAV (drone)  industry that make an effort to be safe.   I hope to start reaching out to others to “fly right”  and be available for people to learn the proper, safe way to fly.
