Accidents happen, BUT the inset photo shows what happens when an uninsured and untrained civil UAS pilot in Australia drops an octo-copter on someone’s head, and nothing about this incident was pretty! To try to prevent this happening elsewhere Transport Risk Management (http://www.transportrisk.com/uavrcfilm.html), a world-leader in aviation insurance provision, has teamed with Unmanned Experts LLC to provide ‘Initial Qualification Training’ (IQT) to Small UAS operators. The initial courseware is online in an e-learning format and includes the following: The 8 Module IQT Short Course (http://www.unmannedexperts.com/initial-qualification-training-iqt1/) has been built from ‘best practices’ in both manned, radio-controlled and UAS/RPAS international communities and is designed to provide essential aeronautical information for serious amateurs and professionals operating Small UAS in National Airspaces. Topics include all applicable regulations and guidance documents; aeronautical background information such as charts, NOTAMS and Aircraft Circulars; Radio Communications Procedures; Human Factors and Crew Resource Management; Basic Small UAS Aerodynamics; Weather factors; Airmanship and Decision-making and Safe Operating Procedures. No prior knowledge is required for entry onto the course, which is accessed from the UMEX Learning Management System (https://unmannedexperts.talentlms.com/catalog). Contact TRM to discuss a substantial discount (currently a further 50% off sale price)! Individual Course Lectures include:
SR1. Small UAS Regulations & Guidance F5. Basic Aeronautical Data SF1. Small UAS Aerodynamics F6. Radio Communications Procedures SW1. Small UAS Weather O1. Human Factors & CRM SO1. Small UAS Operational Art SO2. Small UAS Safe Operations SQ1. IQT Qualifying QuizSuccessful completion of the course leads to a Certificate which is qualification for liability and hull flight insurance coverage with Transport Risk Management as well as for professional credits with George Mason University (http://ocpe.gmu.edu/student/ceus.htm) UMEX runs a number of Small UAS flying instruction courses as well, which also qualify for TRM coverage, and come highly recommended for those wishing to improve their flight skills as well as their professional knowledge.
