A fascinating sector is emerging in the world of aviation. Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are re-defining aerial activities, and broadening the definition of what it means to be a pilot. Unmanned: Textbook for UAS Studies, shares that emerging world with its readers.
Subjects in Unmanned include: Evolution of UAS, Regulations & Authorities, UAS Classification, Command & Control, Situational Awareness, Types of UAS Operations, Payloads, Special Flight Operating Certificates, and Rotary Wing UAS.
Based on its parent publication, the award-winning From the Ground Up from which it shares content, Unmanned also delves into subjects that UAS operators must know in order to fly the systems that are their responsibility. These subjects include: Theory of Flight, Aerodromes & Airspace, Aviation Weather, Air Navigation, and Radio. Unmanned concludes with a comprehensive list of explanations, spanning several pages, of International Abbreviations & Terminology used in the UAS field.
The dawn of this new sector in the aviation world is here.This title, a first-of-its-kind in the world, to educate those who will fly these fascinating technologically-advanced aerial machines, for commercial applications. Large and small, heavy and light, the UAS is an amazing new breed of aircraft. Its world is broad, and its pace of development is rapid. Unmanned leads the way in tackling the subjects necessary to understand this emerging sector.
