Today’s show is about NOTAMs and flying and conducting missions in their absence and how pilots can ensure the safety and other regulatory compliance in the absence of NOTAMs. Our question for today is from Jordan who would like to know how pilots can conduct flight missions in the absence of NOTAMs and in such scenarios how can pilots demonstrate their ability to conduct safe missions. As our listeners know, NOTAM checks are mandate of Part 107 requirements and often included in pre-flight checks by pilots. The absence of NOTAMs can potentially lead to pilot confusion. Rob and Paul discuss the requirements of NOTAMs followed by steps that drone pilots can follow to ensure they demonstrate the safety compliance during flights. Paul also shares hack pilots can use to ensure compliance to regulations in the event of absence of NOTAMs and should pilots be held liable for conducting checks during such a time.
Tune in today to learn how pilots can effectively navigate challenging scenarios and ensure compliance to regulations.
