Abstract

The paper discusses an approach for a modular training program that is adapted but not limited to flight test operations of a remotely piloted electrical vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. The basis of this crew training program is built on an analysis of the legal framework, aviation safety in respect of airmanship and situational awareness, training methods, and agile project environment. A key role is the inclusion of aviation safety, with particular attention to operation-based subject good airmanship. The needs arising from testing and agile project development are considered. The training program is adapted to a Concept of Operations (ConOps) for an unmanned aerial system (UAS) of several hundred kilograms. The results in the form of a modular training program are described.
