Background
                Since 2019, the CoVID19 impacts the daily life of all people around the world. This makes many technologies become more important such as Drone, VR. This technology has been around the corner for many years, but it even got more demand during the pandemic period. Technology plays an important role as it helps many people to stay at home safely but still can work and enjoy their life in the virtual and real world. Plus with the advancement of the sensors make the device more lightweight and more powerful. Also with the recent plan of Facebook Horizon release, would make VR becoming a part of mainstream technology soon.

Day 6: Drone pilot

8 cores modules required by CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) of UK.

1. UAS Airspace Operating Principles

At first glance it can appear daunting. Even though drones normally operate in the bottom 400 feet of airspace you’ll need to know what happens above and beyond your flying area. Things like controlled airspace, danger areas, prohibited areas and restricted areas. There are lots of acronyms to get to grips with such as FIR, ATZ, MATZ, CTR and AIAA but we’ll make it as fun and pain free as we can.

2. Airmanship & Aviation Safety

 There’s a lot of ground to cover but it includes procedures for operating safely. We tell you why it’s important to take pride  in how you fly and why you should pay close attention to planning.

3. Air Law & Responsibilities

This is the most important part to explain about the regulation of using drone in each country you stay as well as how to do the best practice on how operate drone responsively.

4. Meteorology

 We’ll teach you how to get a forecast that’s suited to drone flying and how to interpret it correctly. We’ll also tell you about aircraft icing, turbulence, and wind gradients and how the area in which you’re flying can have a dramatic effect on local conditions.

5. Navigation Charts

Just because your drone has a built in GPS doesn’t mean you needn’t worry about navigation. There’s a whole section of our course devoted to good old fashioned maps and charts and the limitations of GPS. If you haven’t seen an aviation chart before you’ll be surprised how much 3 dimensional data is crammed into a two dimensional space and most of it is vitally important for safe flight planning.

6. Human Factors

The vital part of the syllabus but it’s one that students are surprised to see listed. Then they hear about the adverse effects of tiredness, alcohol and medication. Even cold weather, excessive workload, distractions from clients and spectators or working on your own can put a drone pilot under pressure – pressure that could lead to an accident.

7. Aircraft Knowledge

It contains a lot of components and complex systems which you need to understand. Things like Inertial Measurement Units, Power Management Units, Accelerometers and Electronic Speed Controllers. You’ll also need to know the specifications and limitations of your own aircraft, not just for practical reasons including safety and emergency procedures, but also for when you come to write your Operations Manual.

8. Operating Procedures

Everything from flight planning, site surveys, risk assessments to pre and post flights checks and emergency procedures. Although these things can sound daunting, they will boost your confidence no end when  you know how to do things properly and safely.

    • How did we make it? How NASA space data was used?
    • What problem and achievements did your team have?

          2.6 Project Demo (30 seconds of glory)

    • Project video
    • App prototype
    • Data & Resources
3. Project Management
  • Include a link to code in a public repository on your project page
  • Ensure that all your team members are registered and identified on the team’s webpage
4. Video, Graphic Presentation

                Create an infographic or poster to represent your project. Use the English language on your project page and English language or English-language subtitles if you’re asked to create a video.
