When setting up an organisation in the Flyfreely platform you will need to define which flight rules you will be operating under. Primary Authorities determine which regulations (or rulesets as we call them), will be available. These provide the legal basis for operations. Some Primary Authorities will automatically be created, while others will require you to obtain a certificate or licence from the regulator.
|Ruleset||Primary Authority Full Name||Primary Authority Short Name|
|Included RPA||RPA Operators Certificate||ReOC|
|Excluded RPA||Excluded RPA Operations||Ex-Cat|
|Model Aircraft Rules||Model Aircraft Rules||Recreational|
Once you have completed onboarding, you will also be able to set Secondary Authorities for your organisation. Secondary Authorities can range from additional approvals to permissions and waivers from the regulator.
Organisation or site specific authorities can be created by the FlyFreely team to meet your requirements.
|Secondary Authority Full Name||Secondary Authority Short Name|
|Approval of Area for Operation of Remotely Piloted Aircraft||Area Approval|
|Operation of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Beyond Visual Line of Sight||-|
Personal authorities are connected to an individual’s profile to record things like licenses, certificates, identifiers and inductions.
When setting up a personal profile you will be prompted to supply some of these details, if you have them.
|Personal Authority Full Name||Personal Authority Short Name|
|Aviation Reference Number||ARN|
|RPA Operator Accreditation||-|
|Remote Pilot Licence||RePL|
|Aeronautical Radiotelephone Operators Certificate||AROC|
|Approval - To Conduct AELP and GELP Assessments||-|
|Instrument Rating Examination||IREX|
Authorities can also be applied to RPAs. RPA Authorities may include registration, airworthiness inspections and weight / balance checks. These authorities can be used as conditions on registers to prevent RPAs with expired authorities from operating.
