(VAT exclusive price)

Course duration: 4 hours     Course date: 25 March 2019     Course location:  Gatwick


Course Overview


This course will provide delegates with a more in depth understanding and overview of the Operating Safety Case (OSC)  process. As an experienced Standard permission holder the delegate will have experience in operating to certain limitations and may now wish to explore how they can operate with more flexibility and reduced limitations such as EVLOs, BVLOS or reduced distances.


Civil Aviation Publication (CAP) 722 Appendix B, C and D outlines the process involved for completing and submitting an OSC and gives guidance on how to complete the three different volumes which cover your Concept of Operations, UAS specifications and risk assessments.


This course is a unique opportunity to engage with the newly formed UAS unit at the CAA who are responsible for assessing Operating Safety Case applications as well as meeting fellow commercial operators. During the course and group discussions you will get some tips and best practise in how to complete the different volumes and gain a better understanding of the role of the UAS Unit and regulatory oversight.

This course is suitable for a UAS standard permission holder who wants to progress to submitting an operating safety case.
