1.) 4 HOUR PILOT EQ INTERACTIVE FLIGHT INTELLIGENCE DRONE WORKSHOP 3.0 TRAINING INCLUDES DISCUSSION ON FOLLOWING TOPICS:

HEAVY LIFT SYSTEMS AND AIRCRAFT LOADING

Regardless of aircraft you see yourself flying, having the confidence to fly a larger system can instill a level of assurance that is instrumental to conducting business successfully. During the Flight Intelligence 3.0 Workshop, we spend some time reviewing the Freefly Systems ALTA 6 and testing various weight and balance factors for stability. Flying a larger aircraft gives us a better understanding of aerodynamics through observing the effects on performance in varying conditions.

LIPO BATTERY MANAGEMENT 

Although we discuss basic battery care in our other Flight Intelligence Workshops, we take the time in the 3.0 workshop to dive a little deeper. Since traveling, a busy schedule, and lots of flight time is a portion of the experience for a successful drone pilot, it's good to know how to manage batteries efficiently so that they can last as long as possible. 

HEADING ORIENTATION 

This is an area you won't find discussed on your Part 107 Exam, but at Pilot EQ, we believe every UA pilot can improve their competitive edge in this way: we test your heading orientation confidence and assess response times in order to refine your personal pilots practice regimen. Every pilot is at a their own specific level of practice, and it is important for our pilots to always define and safely expand that boundary line in order to increase pilot capabilities. 

AERONAUTICAL CHARTS AND AIRPORT OPERATIONS

An aeronautical chart is the road map for the sky- a necessary resource for a pilot. It provides information on airport data and navigational aid, airspace, and topography. Airport operations and special use Airspace is specified in this particular workshop. We familiarize our pilots with various symbols in the chart legend that are useful for drone pilots specifically, and applicable to questions on the the Part 107 Exam. 

RADIO COMMUNICATIONS AND WAIVERS

Efficient communication is a human attribute that is invaluable, and absolutely necessary for a pilot. Radio allow pilots to give and receive information during various stages of flight, so we discuss it's application as a drone pilot and how to find various frequency to communicate through specific broadcast procedures. With this, it is also important to know how to apply for waivers since these are what would generally initiate the opportunity for radio communications in the first place.

PERCEPTION FACTORS IN DECISION MAKING

In our day to day life, we ignore how powerful stress, fatigue, hyperventilation, and even hunger can be, which can compromise our physiological and therefore psychological balance. Hazardous attitudes in a dynamic environment can be the ultimate distraction to our perception, so we educate our pilots about how these factors can affect us in the field while flying, and more importantly how to prevent these influences from negatively showing in your flight practice. We practice specific scanning techniques that will keep your awareness focused on the task at hand, while also addressing the deeper elements of Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM): hazard and risk. Different pilots see hazards differently, so it is important to identify these attributes consciously- especially when you are going to considers flying commercially in high-risk environments.
