The Part 101 plain English guide also incorporates up to date information from Advisory Circular 101-10 Remotely piloted aircraft systems – operation of excluded RPA so AC 101-10 has been removed.
This guide makes it easier for you to find, understand and apply the regulations for micro and excluded RPA in certain commercial activities.
The guide does not reproduce the full text of the regulation, the MOS or the AC.
You can read the legislation in full on the Federal Register of Legislation website.
Who will benefit from this guide
This guide is for people who are conducting commercial operations using:
- micro RPA drones that weigh 250 g or less
- excluded RPA — this includes drones that are very small, small, or medium drones used in very specific commercial situations (activity and location).
While this guide is for micro and excluded drone operators, all drone users will find it useful as it demonstrates foundational drone safety rules.
