This checklist presents the steps that must be followed whilst planning an operation.
2. Has the Risk Assessment been filled?
The Risk Assessment (RA) is a document specifying all the risks that can occur during the progress of the mission. It states as well the mitigation that can be made to limit the risk to occur. The “Risk Assessment – Template” document offers a template to establish your own.
3. Is the environment in which the Elios will be operated safe?
Elios is sensible to its surroundings. The mission environment must comply to the limitation presented in the “Environment Awareness” section presented in the Original Instructions.
The presence of dangerous elements must have been stated in the RA and MS documents.
4. Is there any biological hazard?
If the Elios is flying in environment that can present bio-hazards (sewer, pandemic area, etc.), the risk should be listed within the MS or RA and appropriate measures must be taken (gloves, eye protection, respirator, etc.).
5. Do you have the adequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?
Even if Elios is safe to fly close to human, whilst in operation some precaution might be taken. The following PPE must always be worn:
- Eye protection
- Head protection
- Have protective gloves in vicinity
You must be aware of the effects of operating Elios in your working environment and prepare accordingly. If the environment contains hazards, wear the corresponding PPE (e.g: if the environment is dusty, wear respiratory protection).
The hazards and corresponding PPE should be stated in the MS document.
6. Do you have the proper flight authorization?
If you perform outdoor flights, depending on the area and on the country in which you will conduct your flight, you will need a specific authorization. Contact the Civil Aviation Agency in place in your country for more information.
7. Use of the aircraft
Flyability’s products are NOT listed as dual-use products. Ensure the system is not used with the intent to harm.
