UAS Pilots Code for Best Practices #drone #droneday

NewImage

Thorough write up from sUAS News about the UAS Pilots Code:

UAS integration to the NAS is proving disruptive to long-established safety practices, and poses ethical, technical and regulatory challenges. This environment underscores the adage that the law lags behind technology. There is a need for clear and fundamental guidance for the UAS community as it strives for operational safety and professionalism.

In response, the Aviators Code Initiative and University Aviation Association recently released the UAS Pilots Code. The Code offers recommendations to advance UAS safety, airmanship, and professionalism, providing guidance for new UAS aviators who may be unfamiliar with aviation safety culture and practices.

The Code is designed to foster a common understanding across a highly diverse user community, guiding UAS pilots and operators toward an understanding of established aviation safety practices, informing manned pilots of the basics of unmanned aviation, and assisting regulators and flight safety organizations. The UAS Pilots Code is also forward-looking, anticipating development of new, more complex and automated operations and systems.

The Code offers broad guidance—a set of values—to help UAS pilots confront real-world challenges. It will help pilots and operators develop standard operating procedures (SOPs), effective risk management, and safety management systems (SMS).

Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
