Unmanned aircraft in the EASA Certified category are considered to be aircraft and hence, in a way similar to manned aircraft, need a Type Certificate. This Type Certificate should cover the airworthiness of the entire Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS)/Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), as specified in the Type design. The UAS requirements shall eventually be laid down in codes like the EASA Certification Specifications (CS).
The course will provide an overview of the existing certification specifications for UAS/RPAS and on how the certification process should be currently undertaken for RPAS of different configurations and MTOM.
Furthermore, the course will provide information on emerging standards for UA equipment (e.g. geofencing) as well as for the CE marking and declaration of conformity in the open and specific categories.
10 lectures of about 50 minutes, plus 2 group exercises (1.5 h each), plus 1 hour for final examination: 13 modules of around one hour distributed in 2 consecutive days.
The 10 lectures comprise:
In addition to questions and answers at the end, but even solicited during the lectures and availability of the trainer during the breaks, one group exercise per day is planned:
