This module links theory to practical applications and focuses on developing flight handling skills. Students will gain an understanding of the various factors that affect flight characteristics and gain insights into strategies for operating unmanned aircraft systems safely. Students will also be introduced to mission planning, advanced manoeuvres and handling emergency procedures while being cognizant to other relevant factors to the operation of Unmanned Aircraft. The practical components learnt will allow students to transfer their knowledge and skills to heavier categories of Unmanned Aircraft of the future as well as allow them to apply airworthiness considerations in the design and development for future Unmanned Aircraft.
