What happens on a flight test?
The best way of thinking about a flight test is to consider it your first real job. When you arrive your examiner will give you a briefing on the task you are required to do and you will be expected to produce an appropriate flight plan and risk assessment. Your examiner will expect you to brief them on the plan and assess your knowledge of air law and your aircraft. After this you will attend the location and be expected to complete a site assessment, check your drone and setup appropriate control measures for the task.
If you were doing a real job your client would expect you to attend with all the required equipment including laptop, maps, personal protective equipment, paperwork, anemometer, first aid kit, signs, small fire extinguisher. Also, if you have kit with you, use it! Leaving your kit in the car doesn’t add up to being prepared!
