Does drone control and operation drones have to pass training?
French "European Times" quoted Agence France-Presse on June 20 as saying that on June 19, French local time, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) announced that from early September, drone pilots weighing more than 800 grams must accept free shipping. Training, the Civil Aviation Administration will conduct drone control on the Internet, must training be passed to operate drones?
On the 19th, a statement from the French Civil Aviation Administration pointed out that from the date of the establishment of the training platform, drone remote pilots for recreational purposes have two months to receive training. The purpose of the training is to "cultivate responsible behavior of remote pilots through teaching methods, improve conditions for the safe use of drones, strengthen pilots' awareness of the main regulations, and urge pilots to respect the privacy of third parties on the ground, from UAV users realize UAV control.
After the training, drivers will be tested online, according to the statement. There are 20 test questions, and after the test is successful, the driver will be able to download a training certificate.
In addition, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation pointed out that the training provided by the French Federation of Model Aircraft Handling Technology also has the same training qualifications.
As the new drones on the market are getting lighter and lighter, France has set up training for drone pilots over 800 grams, which will allow many new drone models to escape the legal "radar", so this regulation is even more cause for concern. dispute.
On June 1 this year, in the "Administrative Measures for Commercial Flight Activities of Civil Unmanned Aircraft (Interim)" officially implemented by the Civil Aviation Administration of my country, it is aimed at unmanned aircraft with an empty weight of more than 250 grams (including 250 grams). Aerial spraying (sprinkling), aerial photography, aerial photography, performance flight and other operations and unmanned aerial vehicle pilot training are carried out for drone management and control. Do you have to pass training to operate drones? , which basically includes the most threatening drones on the market, which is more comprehensive and more realistic than the French control measures for drones over 800 grams.
In recent years, various countries have introduced laws and regulations on the control of drones from different angles and in different fields, but there are still problems such as unclear management and implementation departments, inconsistent management methods in various regions, and serious lagging behind the actual development of the market. In a short period of time, the comprehensive control of drones can be achieved without harming the healthy development of the drone industry.
