    What is a Drone Operations Manual?

    One of the most important stages of your General Visual Line of Sight (GVC) drone training journey is your Operations Manual (OM). This document explains to the CAA how you will conduct yourself when you are operating within the Specific Category under UKPDRA-01.

    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 UAS Operations in the Specific category under UKPDRA-01. 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.

    As part of the General Visual Line of Sight Certificate Course, you will be required to submit a Return for Information (RFI) form to UAVHUB regarding what types of UAS operations you wish to undertake, your intended aircraft and a little about your company.

    The team over at Open Sky Consulting (a part of the UAVHUB Group), will produce you a fully specced out Operations Manual, ready to go to the CAA. It is YOUR document, so if you wish to make changes to the one supplied you may do so, BUT it will need to still be signed off by a member of the Operations Manual Team at UAVHUB.

    Make sure you fully read through the Operations Manual, and understand its contents, as, at the end of the day, it is YOUR manual.
