UAS Night Mission Training
The Avion Unmanned team can bring your agency's UAS program to the next level with our Night Operations training. This is a two-part program that starts at our online training portal. These lessons cover the regulatory requirements of night waivers and will walk you step-by-step through the waiver request process. We also discuss night physiology such as visual illusions and dark adaptation, and how to safely perform UAS operations at night, from preflight planning to postflight inspection. This training meets the FAA-mandated requirement that must be included in a waiver request for night UAS flight in the National Airspace System.
The flight portion of the training helps UAS operators identify the hazards of night flying firsthand. Students will learn to prepare risk assessments and perform scenario-based night flight maneuvers. Our certified instructors can help you obtain your night operations waiver and develop and manage a successful UAS standardization program.
