WEBINAR – Urban Turbulence & Micro Climates with your UAS

Regular Pricing19.95 USD
Your eTicket will be emailed after payment to your PayPal email address.

Have you ever had a situation in the field where your sUAS seemed to have a mind of its own?  In this 90 minute webinar, we’ll discuss how wind flow patterns offer predictability if one is able to read the environment.   We’ll explore how seemingly unpredictable sUAS behavior can be predicted based on understanding micro climates and urban turbulence.

Environmental concerns play a significant role in capturing data with a drone, particularly when 3D modeling is the goal, or when accurate measurements are required. In this 90 minute session, we will discuss and demonstrate the impacts of winds and environment on stable, safe, and useful sUAS flight. We’ll also diagram why common types of sUAS incidents occur, helping pilots to understand how to avoid the seemingly unavoidable crashes in urban environments.   Last, we’ll have an interactive discussion on how to identify and read micro climates in the urban environment.

Pilots both manned and unmanned admit they haven’t considered some of these factors in the past, and now have a better understanding of why drones crash into buildings, seemingly without pilot input.  Join us to learn more in this fresh topic in UA operation.   It is particularly applicable to working in cityscapes, but does also delve into forests, communication towers, etc.

Join Joanne Leming and Douglas Spotted Eagle for this LIVE 90 min session is created for anyone flying sUAS for mapping, modeling, forensic capture, or environmental data gathering purposes.

Once you have registered, we will send you a login for the webinar.  We look forward to training with you!

Night UAV Flight Workshop (Post Commercial UAV Expo)

About the Workshop

Sundance Media Group (SMG) will offer practical Night UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, otherwise known as drone) flight training course to equip UAV pilots with the knowledge, skills and confidence to pilot your UAV at night safely, efficiently and effectively.

Greater than 70 percent of our flying information comes through the eye and the eye is easily fooled at night. This is compounded by the inexperienced pilot alternating views between a tabled/lighted display and the position of the UAV in the sky. Night flying has a higher accident rate than identical day flying, both in UAV and manned aviation. Why? Depth perception is severely distorted, as is reaction time. There are also visual illusions that need to be recognized and mitigated. This session will provide information that will allow pilots to sidestep these challenges, while properly assessing and managing the risks associated with night flight (as waived per Part 107.29). You’ll also learn the foundation of applying for a COW/COA for night flight from an experienced night-flight pilot

Theoretical Training (2 hours)  (Henderson Executive Airport)

The workshop will begin with a comprehensive theory session classroom style, then we head out to the night flight location for some practical experience. Topics to be covered during the classroom portion: 

  • FAA rules of night UAV flight  (What is a 107.29 waiver?)
  • Different types of visual illusions that commonly occur at night
  • Autokinesis and night landing Illusions and how to avoid them
  • Equipment setup
  • Risk Mitigation
  • Importance of acclimating your eye for night flight & avoid light contamination
  • Foundation of applying for a COW/COA for night flight from an experienced night-flight pilot

This workshop is designed to provide all the necessary information needed to empower pilots to sidestep these challenges, while properly assessing and managing the risks associated with night flight (as waived per Part 107.29).  *This workshop includes a certificate of night flight training, which can be used to expedite your FAA waiver.

After a comprehensive theory session, we will travel to the nearby night flight location for some practical experience. We’ll present different types of visual illusions that commonly occur at night. In this practical hands-on class, we will discuss visual illusions as well as best practices for night flying. We will cover Autokinesis and Night Landing Illusions and how to avoid them. We will also discuss acclimating your eye for night flight. We will also cover the use of lights to illuminate our subjects and how to avoid “light contamination” in our eyes.

  • Practical Flight Training (2 hours)  (In the field!)
    • Overview of pre-planning checklist
      • Outline for the day
      • Wind Speed/weather check
      • Location overview: On-site walkthrough of potential obstacles/issues
      • Safety & Emergency procedures (requirement of aircraft lighting)
      • Equipment check, site setup, and basic flight controls
    • Overview of Night Flight UAV flight requirements
      • Airspace & notification requirements
      • Communication with ground crew and Visual Observer
    • UAV Night Flight with craft of choice

Registration with this workshop includes:

  • A Night UAV Flight Handbook
  • Boxed Dinner before heading out to the field for practical training
  • A red flashlight
  • Post-Class, a certificate of completion*

 

*The certificate of night flight training, which can be used to expedite your FAA waiver.

Please note:  UAVs outfitted with required FAA lighting systems will be provided for the attendees to fly for this workshop. Please do not bring your personal UAV as we will not be able to fly it during this workshop.
