Top 10 Tips to Obtain a BVLOS Waiver

Top 10 Tips to Obtain a BVLOS Waiver

Beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations in the United States remain an exception to the general rule that requires the remote pilot in charge (RPIC) to maintain visual line of sight (VLOS) of small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUA or UAS). The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) permits waivers, or approvals, of UAS BVLOS operations and it has granted approximately 90 of them in 2022.

And while the FAA’s Part 107 Waivers Issued page provides copies of these waivers, the applications filed with them, which “shall be attached to and become a part thereof”, still remain publicly unavailable. So, what’s the secret sauce to getting a BVLOS waiver?

Why Should Drone Pilots Use Logbook & Fleet Management Software

Why Should Drone Pilots Use Logbook & Fleet Management Software

In aviation, documentation remains a critical component in upholding standards and reinforcing required levels of operational safety. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires crewed aviators to maintain pilot logbooks. These documents attest to a pilot’s qualifications and experience. They must include annotations relating to the training and aeronautical experience used to meet certificate, rating, or flight review requirements and the recent aeronautical flight experience required to comply with Part 61. These documents should also represent what a pilot has accomplished after each flight.

For drone pilots, although Part 107 does not explicitly require similar documentation, it does so indirectly. Given the above-mentioned context, what is the best way to manage all this required documentation? While paper logs can help, a digital support is commonly required, and log management software is the ideal solution.
