Sugou so now, when youre about to begin your operations and were choosing the best possible takeoff and landing site, a number of things have to be considered once youre at the site and looking around you have tall buildings, mechanical turbulence, you get wind tunneling, look around in Your area for obstacles that maybe you didnt recognize when you did your satellite based image site survey, youre going to want to note the wind direction, so you have a nice takeoff and landing into the wind. If you have a wind and a monitor, you can use that to help identify, or here at the airport. Today i can see a wind sock. You might have to move around buildings or identify things that are causing interference. One of the most important thing is, especially in a site with uneven terrain is try to choose the highest elevation position if you can to take off and land from thatll also help you and, of course, thinking about the security at the site and how its always The people you didnt plan on being there that where they might come from, how are you going to control them coming onto the site? Have you chosen a spot that this all works out with? And finally, if you have visual observers, certainly an operation like this would be highly recommended to have some extra people.
Where are they going to be positioned? They can help with both security and visual observers. So once you have all your your uh youve identified your position. Thats the best with all these factors, you can lay out your cones, your landing pad, make sure you have your emergency equipment like your fire extinguisher, never know what might happen Music and then then uh youll be just about ready to do your final. Go! No! Go decisions and begin your operation in this module. We will be going over flight operations and additional tips stay tuned for more now were really getting ready to start our operation and theres, something we have to talk about and thats checklist. As you know, from your training and your flight review, checklists are a must something that i have to bring up as a flight reviewer. So we often see candidates show up with a beautiful binder full of all the documents, all their checklists. And then you have to ask yourself when youre flying and you have your hands on the controller. How are you gon na flip through a binder and reference, an emergency checklist, so at sugu drones we highly recommend the use of an arm board. This is the same sort of armboard. The pilots would use on their leg or their arm, and we have nice convenient size that you, when youre doing an operation by yourself, because you wont always have a visual observer, will be able to.
Actually you practically reference. This information in an organized manner and still maintain control of your aircraft. We highly recommend the the armboards. Now these checklists will cover all the uh important pre takeoff checks, youre, also going to have your pre flight briefing, all the factors youre going to discuss with your visual observers and any other flight crew. You have and then finally, that the walk around and the aircraft make sure you dont forget anything. You can have some of those checklists in your binder, but certainly the emergency procedures, your takeoff and landing. I highly recommend it be on your arm board readily easily accessible and a big plus when youre doing your flight review. If you have not yet done that theres some additional tools, you really should consider for advanced operations such as at an airport and, of course, having a two way. Radio is very valuable information for you or your visual observer to monitor the radio and understand when aircraft might be moving or approaching on taxiways or anywhere close to your operation and even if youre, not an airport, to know traffic that might be coming through the area. Such as low flying float planes here in muskoka, of course, a wind anemometer, is also a very valuable tool. You hear about often some more complex things are the spectrum analyzer, definitely a good to have item and and finally ive forgotten what the fourth thing is cube. The announcer rangefinder, which can be purchased at www.
sugutools.com and yes, finally, a rangefinder measuring the locations uh to to buildings nearby buildings, the heights of nearby buildings, if youre having to work in that corridor above a building being able to have an accurate measurement um, especially if Youre filed youre now canada operations to a certain height, its good to check with the rangefinder distances, buildings, etc. A laser range finder can be quite helpful in the following module.
