What do pilots who operate plant protection drones need to do in their operations to reduce the risk of bombers and avoid accidents?
First of all, according to the “Regulations on the Management of Civil UAV Drivers” issued by the Civil Aviation Administration, personnel operating plant protection drones should have a driver’s license with V classification registration according to the “Regulations” method, or the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. The training and evaluation of plant protection drone operators who are independently responsible for plant protection drone production enterprises that meet the qualification requirements stipulated by the department means that the personnel using plant protection drone must be registered under real names, undergo professional training and evaluation, and be certified to work.
Secondly, be sure to carefully observe the surrounding environment before the operation, understand the facilities and air control requirements around the operation site, and avoid obstacles such as forest trees, high-voltage line towers, wires, and poles that affect the safe flight of the planned operation block and the surrounding area. Check that the performance of the plant protection UAV is intact, and set the parameters such as the flight height, speed, spray width and spray flow of the agricultural plant protection UAV according to the geographical conditions of the operating area.
Third, during the operation, strictly follow the operation plan, and the flight distance is controlled within the line of sight; take-off and landing flight should be more than 5m away from obstacles, parallel flight should be away from obstacles more than 10m and decelerate accordingly; according to the operation situation, Observe the position and status of the far end of the flight and the spray width, flight height, speed, distance, breakpoints, etc. of the agricultural plant protection drone, and make corresponding treatments.
Fourth, you must pay attention to stay away from the crowd during the operation. Many laymen will be very curious about drone spraying and want to watch the aircraft operation at close range. Pilots should popularize the danger of drones before these operations; The drone operator cannot control after drinking and is unwell, and those who are allergic to pesticides cannot.
Finally, it is necessary to formulate a plan for handling emergencies and determine the emergency landing point for agricultural plant protection drones if they fail (must be away from the crowd).
In addition to plant protection pilots should pay more attention in the process of operation, the relevant departments of all regions should strengthen the formulation of plant protection drone
management regulations, promote the establishment of the official management association of plant protection drone, and regulate the personnel engaged in plant protection management. During the investigation, it was found that the local lack of corresponding drone management regulations and official drone associations, and lack of publicity on the safe operation of plant protection drones.
