- Stalls Occurs when the wing exceeds its critical angle of attack.
- Center of Gravity (CG) Limits Supposed to be defined in the Pilot’s Operating Handbook or UAS Flight Manual, but those don’t exist for drones.
- Angle of attack Determines when the craft stalls. This doesn’t change if the vehicle weight changes.
- Load Factor Increases during any maneuver.
- Remote PIC This is the answer to any question about who is responsible.
- Left Aircraft always turn left when circling a runway, because drivers sit on the left side of the car in the US, and pilots sit on the left of the plane, too. It’s easier for them to look out the left window to see the tower.
- Maintenance schedule You’re supposed to have one, even though most drones can’t be user-repaired and don’t provide a schedule.
- Risk Management Helps to prevent an accident chain.
- Personality factors Machismo Taking risks to impress others
- Personality factors Impulsivity Doing something without thinking about it.
- Personality factors Invulnerability Thinking accidents won’t happen to you.
- Personality factors Resignation What’s the use? They don’t control their destiny.
- Personality factors Anti-authority Nobody can tell me what to do.
- Crew Resource Management (CRM) It’s how you manage your “crew” and you should integrate it into all phases of the operation.
- Systematically focus on different segments of the sky for short intervals That’s how you should scan for traffic–let your eyes rest in different areas for a while, rather than continuously scanning.
- Latitude Is like climbing a ladder (north-south)
- Longitude Is the long way around the planet (the Earth is fat cuz it spins).
- Standard briefing Contains the weather forecast.
- CTAF vs UNICOM vs MULTICOM vs AWOS AWOS is weather. CTAF is for pilots to talk to each other when there’s no tower. UNICOM is a base station that broadcasts to pilots when there’s no tower. MULTICOM is used as the CTAF when there’s no CTAF (122.9 or 122.95).
