Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) commonly known as drones, are seemingly everywhere at present. The Sochi Olympic Games provides a good example of the complexity of the technology with almost every aerial camera shot being taken with a UAV.
Technology is developing much quicker than the regulatory process. Air Safety Navigators has experience with UAV operations and controllers. Air Safety Navigators staff members hold UAV Controller Certificates.
Air Safety Navigators can assist clients with the prequalification of UAV operators as well as UAV Safety Audits. We also develop SMS Manuals and safety cases for UAV operations.
Our UAV safety audit process comprehensively covers all national regulatory requirements as well as industry best practice whilst assisting in managing community concerns and expectations with regard to UAV operations.
