    Operations Manual

    How will operate your drone?

    What is a Drone Operations Manual?

    One of the most important stages of your PfCOdrone training journey is your an Operations Manual (OM). This document basically explains to the CAA how you will conduct yourself when you are out working commercially.

    What goes into an Operations Manual?

    Important sections need to be explained from Safety training & Nominated Personnel through to Aircraft Systems & Incident Reporting. Flight Planning, Procedures & Emergencies also need to be covered along with all the necessary documentation needed for commercial Operations. Information about the operations you will be undertaking, the aircraft you will be flying & the pilots you will be using will also need to be included.

    How do I layout the Operations Manual?

    The Operations Manual is to be laid out using the Civil Aviation Authority's (CAA) Template that's contained within the CAP 722A.

    We have produced a helpful template for all of our students based on this template to ensure an easy process of producing one.

    The Operations Manual can either be written by yourself or written by a 3rd party company of your choice. The document can be rather large, between 40 to 50 pages long and this can be rather daunting for many people. We recommend Open Sky Consulting as many of our students have used their services and speak very highly of them. They also provide the Operations Manual for our ICARUS Pro students.
