UAV Night Operations
1-Day UAV Workshop Session
When undertaking external thermal imaging building surveys, it’s essential to meet basic environmental requirements in order to avoid adverse influences such as solar gain. This usually implies that surveys will commence two hours after sunset or before sunrise. For this reason, it’s invaluable for infrared UAV pilots to understand the complexities of night flying. Based around work-flow and human factors, this workshop session covers topics including work-flow, crew management, flight planning and emergency procedures.
