Flight Test and Safety Ratings Safety Research Team Subject Matter Experts Advisory Board
The Unmanned Safety Institute employs a flight test team that maintains safety statistics that can be used to establish baselines for mean time between overhauls and inspection intervals. Lessons learned from the flight test team are incorporated into all training. The Unmanned Safety Institute’s in-house team of researchers aggregates data from all Unmanned Safety Institute initiatives to draft standards, best practices, and operational tools as well as publish UAS safety statistics. Unmanned Safety Institute Fellows are recognized experts in their fields. These experts contribute to course material and best practices as well as conduct original research that is published in some of the world’s leading aviation journals. The Unmanned Safety Institute has established an advisory board composed of experts in the aviation community and industry thought leaders. This board helps establish community-based standards, flight safety ratings, and UAS best practices.
