Learner Outcomes

Apply appropriate federal laws and regulations specific to small uncrewed aircraft systems (sUAS) operations; Interpret aviation charts to identify controlled and uncontrolled airspace, operating requirements, special-use airspace, and flight restrictions; Evaluate aviation weather charts, reports, and forecasts specific to safe sUAS operations; Explain the effects of weather, temperature, and humidity on sUAS performance; Describe the importance of determining the proper weight and balance condition critical to safe operation of a sUAS; Demonstrate proper radio phraseology and procedures to operate safely and efficiently in the airspace system; Explain the potential circumstances that would create an inflight emergency and how to mitigate potential consequences; Describe the physiological factors that can affect pilot performance; Explain how aeronautical decision-making (ADM) principles, including crew resource management (CRM), provide a systematic approach to good decision-making that assess and mitigate risk; Describe what data a sUAS pilot needs when operating in the vicinity of an airport; Describe the maintenance and inspection required to assure safe operation of a sUAS.
