Part 107 certification provides the remote pilot with the ground-level basics required to operate a small, uncrewed aircraft system (sUAS) in a safe manner. At Fidelis Aerial Imaging, the standards are considerably higher. As we perform the work of Storm Damage Assessment, our pilots maintain a heightened awareness of the risks associated with this environment. They work along side an experienced Journeyman Lineman, who will help them understand and mitigate any hazards present on a job site. The safety of our personnel is always paramount.
In order to further facilitate this mindset, Fidelis Aerial Imaging recommends that Remote Pilots complete the Trusted Operator Program (TOP) sponsored by AUVSI. This program "fills the gap between these minimally prescriptive operating regulations and a higher level of demonstrated knowledge, flight proficiency, safety and risk management practices". TOP pilots have a stronger situational awareness and are better prepared to safely and successfully complete each mission.
