This book is a "must have" for all Professional Drone Pilots as well as any hobbyist who wants to expand their knowledge. It is the most comprehensive Professional Drone Pilot Text available. Written by experienced, professional instructors and college professors. This text book, along with the Professional Drone Pilot's Checklist is used in all Association of Professional Drone Pilot certified ground school courses. The FAA has developed regulations to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS) for purposes other than hobby and recreation. These rules are specified in 14 CFR part 107 and address sUAS classification, certification, and operating rules.This text is designed for pilots and non-pilots alike who wish to obtain a part 107 remote pilot certificate with an sUAS rating. References to "part 61 pilot certificate holders" specifically refer to holders of pilot certificates other than student pilot certificates. Part 61 pilot certificates include sport pilot, recreational pilot, private pilot, commercial pilot and air transport pilot certificates. Text Content and ObjectivesWhen you complete this text, you will be able to identify: * Requirements to obtain a part 107 remote pilot certificate with a small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) rating * Characteristics of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) as stipulated in part 107 * Exclusions from the requirements in part 107 * Requirements for sUAS registration, markings, and condition * Possible supporting crew roles in sUAS operations * Best practices for crew management * Recommended maintenance procedures for sUAS * Inspection requirements to verify that the sUAS is in condition for safe operation * Restrictions and procedures for safe loading of sUAS * Procedures for evaluating performance during UAS operations * Effects of weather on sUAS operations * Operational requirements and limitations for sUAS * Procedures for requesting a waiver for eligible requirements in part 107 * Abnormal and emergencies situations that may arise during sUAS operations * Requirements for reporting accidents resulting from sUAS operations

In the public imagination, drones are tools of the military and law enforcement. However, there are many sectors in which government at all levels—local, state, and federal—has the potential to leverage drone technology. In this book, readers will be exposed to the history of drone use, as well as currently developing and theoretical future uses of drones. From scientific surveys, to enforcing statutes and environmental regulations on public lands, to helping with traffic management, weather analysis, disaster response, and search and rescue, the possibilities remain endless.

The public debate over civilian use of drones is intensifying. Variously called "unmanned aircraft systems", "unmanned aerial vehicles", "remotely piloted aircraft", or simply "drones", they are available for purchase by anyone for a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. They have strikingly useful capabilities. They can carry high-definition video cameras, infrared imaging equipment, sensors for aerial surveying and mapping. They can stream their video in real time. They have GPS, inertial guidance, magnetic compasses, altimeters, and sonic ground sensors that permit them to fly a preprogrammed flightplan, take off and land autonomously, hover and orbit autonomously with the flick of a switch on the DRone Operator’s ("DROPs") console. The benefits they can confer on law enforcement, journalism, land-use planning, real estate sales, critical infrastructure protection and environmental preservation activities are obvious. However, their proliferation in response to these demands will present substantial risks to aviation safety. How to ensure the safety of drone operations perplexes aviation regulators around the world. They are inexpensive consumer products, unsuited for traditional requirements for manned aircraft costing hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars and flown only by licensed pilots who have dedicated significant parts of their lives and their wealth to obtaining licenses. Regulatory agencies in Europe and Asia are ahead of US regulators in creating spaces for commercial use. Over the next several years, legal requirements must be crystallized, existing operators of helicopter and airplanes must refine their policy positions and their business plans to take the new technologies into account, and all businesses from the smallest entrepreneur to large conglomerates must decide whether and how to use them. Domesticating Drones offers rigorous engineering, economics, legal and policy theory and doctrine on this important and far-reaching development within aviation.

Leben aus der Botschaft des Kreuzes - was bedeutet das für uns heute? Klaus Berger und Clemens betrachten gemeinsam das wichtigste Symbol des christlichen Glaubens. Beide verbindet nicht nur eine langjährige Freundschaft, sondern auch der Wunsch, den gemeinsamen Glauben an das Kreuz und die Auferstehung in eine frische, neue Sprache zu übersetzen. Sie wählen ganz unterschiedliche Betrachtungsweisen und Zugänge und kommen doch zu dem selben Schluss: "Das Kreuz steht für die Wende, dass die Liebe stärker ist!"

Small Unmanned Fixed-wing Aircraft Design is the essential guide to designing, building and testing fixed wing UAVs (or drones). It deals with aircraft from two to 150 kg in weight and is based on the first-hand experiences of the world renowned UAV team at the UK’s University of Southampton. The book covers both the practical aspects of designing, manufacturing and flight testing and outlines and the essential calculations needed to underpin successful designs. It describes the entire process of UAV design from requirements definition to configuration layout and sizing, through preliminary design and analysis using simple panel codes and spreadsheets to full CFD and FEA models and on to detailed design with parametric CAD tools. Its focus is on modest cost approaches that draw heavily on the latest digital design and manufacturing methods, including a strong emphasis on utilizing off-the-shelf components, low cost analysis, automated geometry modelling and 3D printing. It deliberately avoids a deep theoretical coverage of aerodynamics or structural mechanics; rather it provides a design team with sufficient insights and guidance to get the essentials undertaken more pragmatically. The book contains many all-colour illustrations of the dozens of aircraft built by the authors and their students over the last ten years giving much detailed information on what works best. It is predominantly aimed at under-graduate and MSc level student design and build projects, but will be of interest to anyone engaged in the practical problems of getting quite complex unmanned aircraft flying. It should also appeal to the more sophisticated aero-modeller and those engaged on research based around fixed wing UAVs.

What is it exactly that we are trying to accomplish with this book? The world that we live in is going through a very interesting and dramatic change. With the new interest in both commercial and hobby drones and quadcopters (4 propellers) our skies are going to become a very busy space. While that alarms some people, for others it is an incredible time. For the would-be filmmakers, this is an incredible time to be alive. Never before have we had so many tools at our disposal to create and innovate. With high quality cameras being upgraded with each and every intimation of cell phones, we each have the power to produce beautiful and stimulating photos and video. We can create content that can be enjoyed by ourselves, or farmed out to Instagram and YouTube. Our videos, movies and films can be used to document the world around us, report the news, look at things from a new perspective, and really gain a deep understanding of our environment. Sure, there will be some speed bumps along the way . . . but every revolution has issues in the beginning. Indeed, the laws governing what we can and can't do will change as quickly as they're drafted to deal with problems that we don't know we will even face. But progress is like this. Fits and starts. We are going to guide you in your new endeavor, teach you about the kinds of drones you might enjoy flying; open you up to techniques that make you not only a safe pilot, but a great filmmaker! We want you to buy right, fly right, and shoot (film) straight. We will even discuss the notion of monetizing your videos and content. Yes, there is something for all of us here. Of course, there is no substitute for getting out there, buying a drone, and having some flight time under your belt . . . but we're certainly going to give you the best chance for success. So, without further ado, let's take a look at what a drone actually is and how we get here!
