we take aviation safety seriously.
The innovation in the UAV industry has been enormously fast that regulation and certifications have become ever more important in the face of consumer-level drones and seemingly easy to access and fly.
The inherent risks in unmanned aerial vehicles are well documented and as professional operators, it is imperative our clients understand the importance of our Part 102 privileges and what that means for our productions.
What is a CAA Part 102
Part 102 is a New Zealand Civil Aviation Rule that addresses the immediate safety risks associated with the use of unmanned aircraft systems, including drones.
For a Part 102 Operating Certificate, we must confirm we have procedures that cover the following topics:
Identifying the hazards to people, property, and other aircraft when conducting flight operations, with documented assessments of the risks associated with each hazard, and measures to mitigate or manage these risks.
Understanding airspace and following correct procedures for requesting authorisation to operate in restricted areas.
Publishing details about our aerial systems and the control systems used to pilot them, as well as maintenance procedures and methods to ensure continued airworthiness.
Documenting pre-flight, inflight and post-flight procedures.
Continued Pilot competency by ongoing flight assessments.
