3.2. Recruitment and background checks

Pilots of manned aircrafts have to undergo strict background checks. The legal requirements for drone pilots are much less stringent, but depending on the risk profile of the missions drone pilots are expected to fly, background checks might be just as important for drone pilots and should therefore be conducted in a systematic manner.

Background checks for pilots of manned aircraft include criminal record checks, medical exams and drug screenings, psychiatric assessments as well as references from their employment history.
