Checklists for Drone Risk Assessment
Several factors affect the risks associated with flying drones. Being aware of the current status of equipment and flying conditions and making a detailed flight plan can set an automated system or manual UAV operator up for success. Having the requisite documentation for operators is also crucial, as certificates and licenses demonstrate competence and can prevent fines and penalties for unauthorized drone flights.
Digital checklists are more convenient than paper forms for drone management. By using Fluix, an inspector or pilot can complete a pre-flight checklist on a smartphone or mobile device regardless of the availability of internet connections. In addition to pre-flight measures, checklists for post-flight, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair can inform preventive asset maintenance.
