Flight Test - Operations Evaluation
Once you have submitted your ops manual the next phase is to take the practical flight test, this will be in form of a client request for aerial work , this will be on a mutually convenient day for both the examiner and yourself.
The flight test is nothing to fear all that the examiner needs to see is that you can operate your drone SUA safely and adhere to the methods in your operations manual. You will need to be able to fly the drone without gps assistance but stabilised flight is fully acceptable .
