Course Description

Introduction to Controlled Airspace for sUAS Operations

With the introduction of sUAS’s into the airspace, today’s pilots face many airspace challenges. The lack of knowledge of the airspace or improper preflight planning has resulted in pilot deviations which are a violation of FAR (Federal Aviation Regulations). This has already resulted in a series of incidents and near misses.

One of the most important concepts to take from this course is the need to understand the type of airspace you will be flying in and to check notices to airmen (NOTAMS) before every flight – even a short flight in your local airport practice area. This chapter is designed to help prevent sUAS accidents and mishaps, including near misses occurring from a lack of understanding of airport issues. You will learn the different controlled airspace classifications, the importance of each and the restrictions that apply to each. TFR’s and NOTAMS are covered in detail, as well as the many different types of parameters.
