UAS Operator & Data Collection Specialist
Areas of Expertise:
Operators will have knowledge on operating in FAA approved airspace. This will ensure that commercial and agricultural UAS operators with ComAgUAS designation are familiar with airspace requirements, terminology and conduct.
Unmanned aerial systems have unique operating characteristics. Operators must be proficient in all systems of semi-autonomous vehicles. The skills and the knowledge will ensure that commercial / agricultural operators of UAS can expertly control their sophisticated equipment.
Equally important is understanding the environment that we operate the UAS. Specific industry knowledge will required. Operators will know industry specific terminology. They will also recognize hazards and methods of risk mitigation.
So many companies are seeing the potential of unmanned aerial systems, but they lack the information to confidently add these to their operations. ComAgUAS was created to help these companies integrate UAS and maintain a program of compliance and effectiveness.
Anyone who has passed a FAA approved test will be able to operate an UAS under the proposed rules. There is no limit to the number of operators in any one company, but each individual must be appropriately certified.
ComAgUAS maintains multiple social media platforms; Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Snapchat. We will continue to add ways to reach our members and the industry we serve. We value collaboration and education and are committed to do our part.
Proposed FAA rules do not allow for an UAS to be operated beyond the unaided vision of the operator. This eliminates the use of UAS in many applications such as agriculture, pipelines and utility transmissions. ComAgUAS is dedicated to helping governmental agencies implement rules for the legitimate use of UAS beyond visual line of sight when the operators are properly trained, vehicles are properly equipped and the situation warrants this use.
As a member, you will have access to multiple member benefits including certification programs, events and education. But the most important could be that you will have a voice in shaping this new industry. We need an engaged membership to be effective.
