PFCO FIFTH MODULE

PFCO5000 UAV Specific Knowledge and Operational Procedures (FPFCO5000)


Description

This Course is the fifth part of a six part series designed to train pilots of Small Unmanned Aircraft with a mass not exceeding 20kg to the standard required by the UK Civil Aviation Authority for a grant of a Permission for Commercial Operation (PFCO). That is a permission to operate a UAV on a commercial basis.
The objective is to ensure that pilots understand the theoretical considerations as applicable to UAV operation and the minimum skill level required to pass the flying exam. The Course outlines the methodology required for formalised operational planning and operational procedure definition.
Successful completion of this Course and the associated self-tests will present the pilot with the opportunity to attend for the theoretical exam and flying test together with the practical coaching in respect of Operations Manual and Safety Case Preparation Sections of PFCO6000.
