The UAS Pilot Log Expanded Edition takes your flight recording experience to the next level. Building on the success of droneprep's standard pilot log, this Expanded Edition incorporates pilot feedback and testing results to maximize the routine operations for pilots and operators of unmanned aircraft systems and drones. This log book captures all the elements contained in droneprep's standard log book but offers additional and expanded tools to enhance your flying and record keeping experience. Using this logbook, pilots will be able to distill complex procedures and note taking with simple, easy-to-understand entry pages that can be maintained by any drone operator, regardless of skill level or experience. Added spacing, graphs, notational areas, and commentary fields make this Expanded Edition a flexible and powerful record that will serve as both a tool to enhance the flight experience and a superb record of exactly what happened on the day of each flight. The UAS Pilot Log, Expanded Edition, is one of the first flight logs uniquely designed for the needs of drone operators. After extensive research into record keeping and processes maintained by expert operators, droneprep designed this log book system specifically for pilots and operators of unmanned aircraft systems and drones to plan and track critical flight details. As FAA and other government regulations evolve, the UAS Pilot Log will help keep you on top of your record keeping activities. Seamlessly designed to be useful and relevant, this logbook distills complex procedures and processes with simple, easy-to-understand entry pages that can be maintained by any drone operator, regardless of skill level or experience. The result is a flexible yet powerful record that will serve as both a tool to enhance your flying experience and a superb record of exactly what happened on the day of your flight.
Federal Aviation Regulations, COA, & Section 333 Exemption Compliant. This logbook has been specifically designed to be compliant with 14 CFR 61.51, Section 333 exemptions, and COA logbook requirements. Easy COA Reporting. If you have MULTIPLE aircraft, this will NOT work. Buy one logbook for each drone. The FAA requires that commercial operators who have 333 exemptions and "blanket" COA's to file monthly reports. It is EXTREMELY annoying to log all this information and then send it in via email. If you have one drone per logbook, do not have any takeoff or landing damage, equipment malfunctions, or lost link events, you could simply make scans of the pages for the month and email them into the FAA. The COA's say, "number of flights (per location, per aircraft)" & "total aircraft operational hours[.]" The columns only support one aircraft; however, recreational flyers could list multiple aircraft because they are currently not required to report. Disclaimer: Current FAA "blanket" COAs say "must submit the following information" and do not explicitly say scans are acceptable. The FAA could issue guidance in the future further clarifying the mode of report (text in email vs. scan in email). It is up to YOU to keep up to date on this. The FAA or Law Enforcement Can Request Your Logbook. 14 C.F.R. § 61.51(i) says, "Persons must present their pilot certificate, medical certificate, logbook, or any other record required by this part for inspection upon a reasonable request by" the FAA, an authorized representative from the National Transportation Safety Board, or any Federal, State, or local law enforcement officer. If your electronic logbook is on your device, do you really want to give law enforcement or the FAA your device? Furthermore, how are you to get the data off that device? Insurance. When you apply for insurance, they will ask you to fill out a form that is going to ask for all sorts of information. A logbook will assist you in filling out the form so you can receive the most accurate quote. Marketing. Showing a completed logbook to a potential customer is a great marketing point. Like the old adage, "A picture is worth a thousand words," a good logbook is worth a thousand flights. You can quickly demonstrate your flight experience by flipping through the pages. Furthermore, a well-kept and orderly logbook gives the impression that you are a professional. Required in Other Countries. Other countries such as South Africa require the drone logbook to be in paper. Paper is the current industry standard. Going for a Certificate/Rating. Individuals can use this logbook to apply their experience towards UAS certificates / ratings. While the FAA is still working on creating certificates and ratings, you can prepare for the future by logging everything now. Less Cumbersome. If you are marketing to a potential client, you can scan pages of your logbook and send it to them. It is more cumbersome to get the data off a phone or website. Very Little Problems. What happens if your phone is stolen, water damaged, battery dies, or there is poor cell phone signal? Paper does not need a cell signal or batteries. No Data Theft. You don't have to worry about data theft like you would with a website or an app. Fidelity. Electronic logbooks can be changed while pen and paper is permanent.

This book is an everything-included approach to understanding drones, creating an organization around using unmanned aircraft, and outlining the process of safety to protect that program. It is the first-of-a-kind safety-focused text book for unmanned aircraft operations, providing the reader with a required understanding of hazard identification, risk analysis, mitigation, and promotion. It enables the reader to speak the same language as any civil aviation authority, and gives them the toolset to create a safety risk management program for unmanned aircraft. The main items in this book break down into three categories. The first approach is understanding how the drone landscape has evolved over the last 40 years. From understanding the military components of UAS to the standards and regulations evolution, the reader garners a keen understanding of where we came from and why it matters for moving forward. The second approach is in understanding how safety risk management in aviation can be applied to drones, and how that fits into the regulatory and legislative environment internationally. Lastly, a brief synopsis of the community landscape for unmanned aircraft is outlined with interviews from important leaders and stakeholders in the marketplace. Drones fills a gap in resources within the unmanned aircraft world. It provides a robust understanding of drones, while giving the tools necessary to apply for a certificate of authorization, enabling more advanced flight operations for any company, and developing safety risk management tools for students and career professionals. It will be a mainstay in all safety program courses and will be a required tool for any and all individuals looking to operate safely and successfully in the United States.
