Congratulations on being a new drone pilot! We all understand the excitement of getting a new drone. But don’t rush into flying just yet! It’s relatively straightforward to take off, but do you know every button’s function or have a good understanding of how your drone reacts to the remote controller? Before you head out and get it in the air, you should know your drone well. As it’s the best way to prevent crashes and flyaways. Furthermore, it’s being responsible for the safety of yourself, others, and your drone. Operating a drone can sometimes be tricky. So to avoid any silly missteps, it’s essential to read the product’s manual and get familiar with DJI’s GO apps and pay close attention to preflight preparations. After you understand your drone’s capabilities and limitations choose a safe test flight zone and practice some basic maneuvers before you take the leash off. Additionally, remember to take advantage of free online resources. You can find all you need to know and do before your maiden flight on the DJI Support and DJI Tutorials YouTube channels. Finally, if any problem occurs, you can always contact DJI Support on Facebook or Twitter for help. Here, we’ve summarized 15 tips to help first-time drone pilots prepare for their air adventures.

CAA Approved NQE Heliguy has National Qualified Entity (NQE) approved status from the Civil Aviation Authority. This permits us to carry out unmanned aircraft pilot training at a number of UK locations. Drone pilots who want to undertake commercial work are required to have been trained and tested before they can apply for a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the CAA. We’ll guide you through this process and ensure it’s as painless and enjoyable as is possible! We have an FCA-approved consumer credit licence to enable us to broker credit deals on drones, equipment and training. Heliguy’s on-site technical team not only builds custom aircraft and deals with repairs, it’s also equipped to produce bespoke equipment and modifications to UAVs with the aid of 3D printing technology and years of hands-on experience. Our knowledgeable sales team are just a phone call away when you need a quick answer to your query.

The process to follow when applying to the CAA for an operational authorisation (a permission or an exemption) depends on the relative complexity of the authorisation that you are seeking: Applications for relatively ‘simple’ operational authorisations, which are commonly referred to as a ‘Standard Permission’, are addressed via an online application process: A ‘Standard Permission’ enables a person to conduct commercial operations with a small unmanned aircraft (drone) and also permits operations within a congested area. Applicants will be required to provide all documents and payment online (credit /debit card only ) before submitting their application. Applications for more complex operational authorisations, commonly referred to as ‘Non-Standard Permissions’, or those that require a specific Exemption from the Air Navigation Order are addressed via a more traditional ‘paper based’ application form, the SRG 1320.

Bell Helicopter isn't known for indulging in concept aircraft, but it's dipped its toes in the concept waters for the first time with the FCX-001. Unveiled at Heli-Expo 2017 in Dallas, Texas, the rotorcraft concept features an airframe crafted from sustainable materials, a hybrid power system, an artificial intelligence co-pilot, and morphing rotor blades that change to suit different flight conditions.

With Boeing projecting demand for 41,000 new commercial aircraft and 617,000 pilots over the next 20 years, traditional manned commercial airliners and business and general aviation aircraft will continue to dominate the skies in the near future. However, during the 2017 Paris Air Show, and really over the last year, several companies, including Airbus and Boeing have revealed new aerial flying concepts designed to give drivers in congested cities new options for getting to work, transporting cargo and other uses.

If you have no experience with the model airplane, flying can also easily practiced in the flight simulator PC software (AeroSIM-RC). Various MikroKopter models can hereby be realistic flown using the actual remote control system. So you quickly get a feeling for the handling of the transmitter and the aircraft. With a practice session in this program you can easily enhance the pilot skill "step-by-step".

They hover and skim above the water at speeds of up to 250 miles an hour, while carrying heavier loads of cargo and troops than any airplane could - the Ekranoplans, or "Wing-in-Ground" (WIG) vehicles are possibly the most exciting and strange-looking transportation technology ever invented by men. Developed mostly by the Soviets during the Cold War (by the Rostislav Alexeev design firm), some ekranoplans were over 500 feet in length and had the estimated weight of over 500 tons! And yet they skimmed over the waves with grace, at high speeds, able to negotiate stormy conditions, and unseen by the radar - all thanks to the aerodynamic principle known as the "ground effect".

This book provides a practical guide to the fundamentals of performance, including the requirements of all major applications: power generation, mechanical drive, automotive, marine and aircraft installations. The new edition includes two additional chapters on performance issues of engines in-service and on the techno-economic issues that determine whether a gas turbine project will be profitable.

The X-planes are a series of experimental United States airplanes and helicopters (and some rockets) used to test and evaluate new technologies and aerodynamic concepts. Most of the X-planes have been operated by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) or, later, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), often in conjunction with the United States Air Force. The majority of X-Plane testing has occurred at Edwards Air Force Base.[

Am Dienstag den 30. April 2002 fand der Erstflug des zweiten Prototypen statt. Im Rahmen des Flügelbaus der Werknummer 2 wurden von der Firma Schmidt&Schatz viele Vorrichtungen für den Flügelbau angefertigt, um für die weiteren Flugzeuge die Fertigungszeiten zu reduzieren. Daraus und aus der Einarbeitung in das Projekt resultierte der lange Zeitraum für den Bau des Flügels. Der Erstflug erfolgte auf dem Büchig bei Ostheim und es gab keinerlei Beanstandungen, die Veränderungen notwendig machten. Durch die verbesserten Fertigungsmethoden errreicht das Flugzeug die geplanten Massen und hat jetzt doppelsitzig eine Abflugmasse unter 850 kg. Damit erfüllt eta die JAR 22 und die Wettbewerbsregeln der offenen Klasse. Die Werknummer 3 wird nun in gleicher Konfiguration gefertigt. Der Flügel für den dritten Prototypen, der dann Musterstand besitzen soll, ist bereits im Bau und schreitet mit den erstellten Vorrichtungen gut und zügig voran.

What is the FAST program? The FAST program gives you the opportunity to get a taste of what the sport of soaring is all about. It is a program that offers you an introductory lesson in flying a glider, during which you will handle the controls of the aircraft under the guidance of an FAA certificated glider flight instructor. Who is this for? The FAST program is geared towards you! If you've ever watched a hawk gliding effortlessly in the sky and wondered what that experience must be like then now is the time to try soaring! This is a sport that attracts individuals from all walks of life and of all ages, and is a great activity for the whole family. The FAST program experience also makes a great gift.
