Establish Pilot Proficiency Requirements for Multi-UAS components
Commercial and public safety UAS are currently limited by the Part 107.205, which prohibits operating multiple aircraft by one person. A modification to Part 107.205 will benefit the public as well as UAS commercial operations in applications such as package delivery, precision agriculture, crop and wildlife monitoring, emergency management, and infrastructure inspections. The study that this literature review supports will help to inform FAA regulations and industry standards addressing single pilot and multi-UAS operations. This literature review is designed to (1) inform ASSURE researchers and FAA sponsors on findings from published studies and (2) identify research gaps that are outside the scope of this project but need further study in order to safely integrate multiple UAS operations into the National Airspace System (NAS).
