4.11. Flight training and drone testing

Pilots need to be trained in new aircraft. New, modified or repaired drones need to be tested before they are released for normal flight operations.

Training and testing through their very nature require more room for errors or malfunctions and must therefore be conducted at locations suitable for this purpose.

Risks

  1. Injury or damage caused by pilot mistakes or malfunctioning equipment.

Audit Steps

  1. Evaluate the suitability of the locations used for flight training.
  2. Evaluate the suitability of the locations used for the testing of new or modified drones.
