Organisation Primary Authorities

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.

Organisation Secondary authorities

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.

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.
