The leading cause of UAS mishaps and accidents are equipment failures. This course will also look at the importance of conditional maintenance, tracking maintenance, and preconditions that can reduce equipment performance and increase risk.

The environment can play an important role in small UAS operations. Small UAS operators need to be aware of the National Airspace System, how to avoid midair collisions, and deal with weather and obstacles.

Every operation is unique and will present unique challenges and hazards. Small UAS operators should plan and be equipped to deal with issues such as dealing with Air Traffic Control and traditional air traffic. Working with customers but not allowing communication to be detrimental to the operation, and dealing with varying scales and complexities in a UAS operation.
