This ACS book from the FAA lists the standards and requirements for the Remote Pilot Certificate, issued for operating drones and small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. The new Airman Certification Standards are ideal for checkride preparation, and will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during the checkride. For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System. Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant's understanding, knowledge, risk management considerations, and performance of each task. As always, ASA delivers authentic, accurate, and reliable FAA documents exactly as provided by the FAA. One noticeable change is that the FAA has adapted the size and format of the ACS so that it lists everything an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.

This book has 402 citations and was last updated on February 10, 2015. The media has been buzzing about Amazon's announcement of their plans to use drones to deliver packages to customers. Soon after Amazon made their announcement, DHL and UPS followed with their own drone delivery announcements. Google has also become interested in drones as evidenced by their purchase of Titan Aerospace. These activities have caused many people to wonder what is going on with integration which is why I wrote this book. This book was written to be a useful resource for hobbyists, lawyers, businessmen, or anyone wanting to know what is going on legally to integrate what are called unmanned aircraft, "drones," or remotely piloted aircraft into the United States' airspace. While many individuals have been talking about the Fourth Amendment concerns with unmanned government aircraft (public unmanned aircraft), this book does not focus on those privacy concerns. This book will give an overview about unmanned aircraft and then explore their uses. Finally, this book will dive into the statutes, regulations, and policy statements surrounding unmanned aircraft.

Make: Drones will help the widest possible audience understand how drones work by providing several DIY drone projects based on the world's most popular robot controller--the Arduino. The information imparted in this book will show Makers how to build better drones and be better drone pilots, and incidentally it will have applications in almost any robotics project. Why Arduino? Makers know Arduinos and their accessories, they are widely available and inexpensive, and there is strong community support. Open source flight-control code is available for Arduino, and flying is the hook that makes it exciting, even magical, for so many people. Arduino is not only a powerful board in its own right, but it's used as the controller of most inexpensive 3d printers, many desktop CNCs, and the majority of open source drone platforms.

Drone Operator's Logbook

Federal Aviation Regulations, COA, & Section 333 Exemption Compliant. This logbook has been specifically designed to be compliant with 14 CFR 61.51, Section 333 exemptions, and COA logbook requirements. Easy COA Reporting. If you have MULTIPLE aircraft, this will NOT work. Buy one logbook for each drone. The FAA requires that commercial operators who have 333 exemptions and "blanket" COA's to file monthly reports. It is EXTREMELY annoying to log all this information and then send it in via email. If you have one drone per logbook, do not have any takeoff or landing damage, equipment malfunctions, or lost link events, you could simply make scans of the pages for the month and email them into the FAA. The COA's say, "number of flights (per location, per aircraft)" & "total aircraft operational hours[.]" The columns only support one aircraft; however, recreational flyers could list multiple aircraft because they are currently not required to report. Disclaimer: Current FAA "blanket" COAs say "must submit the following information" and do not explicitly say scans are acceptable. The FAA could issue guidance in the future further clarifying the mode of report (text in email vs. scan in email). It is up to YOU to keep up to date on this. The FAA or Law Enforcement Can Request Your Logbook. 14 C.F.R. § 61.51(i) says, "Persons must present their pilot certificate, medical certificate, logbook, or any other record required by this part for inspection upon a reasonable request by" the FAA, an authorized representative from the National Transportation Safety Board, or any Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer. If your electronic logbook is on your device, do you really want to give law enforcement or the FAA your device? Furthermore, how are you to get the data off that device? Insurance. When you apply for insurance, they will ask you to fill out a form that is going to ask for all sorts of information. A logbook will assist you in filling out the form so you can receive the most accurate quote. Marketing. Showing a completed logbook to a potential customer is a great marketing point. Like the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words," a good logbook is worth a thousand flights. You can quickly demonstrate your flight experience by flipping through the pages. Furthermore, a well-kept and orderly logbook gives the impression that you are a professional. Required in Other Countries. Other countries such as South Africa require the drone logbook to be in paper. Paper is the current industry standard. Going for a Certificate/Rating. Individuals can use this logbook to apply their experience towards UAS certificates / ratings. While the FAA is still working on creating certificates and ratings, you can prepare for the future by logging everything now. Less Cumbersome. If you are marketing to a potential client, you can scan pages of your logbook and send it to them. It is more cumbersome to get the data off a phone or website. Very Little Problems. What happens if your phone is stolen, water damaged, battery dies, or there is poor cell phone signal? Paper does not need a cell signal or batteries. No Data Theft. You don't have to worry about data theft like you would with a website or an app. Fidelity. Electronic logbooks can be changed while pen and paper is permanent.
