What You Need to Know About UAS COA and PAO Operations Before or After You Start Your Program

About this webinar

This webinar is available on-demand and does not have a specific scheduled time.

Flying a public safety operation under a COA is all the rage. So many departments are jumping into public safety flight going down the COA or Public Aircraft Operation route.

Some elect to pursue this after a consultant helps them with this approach. Others are told by manufacturer sales representatives this is the best route to take. Some departments decide to go the COA route to start their program because a another agency told them it was the thing to do.

The class is for all public safety pilots and for those that think they may be contract pilots for a public safety agency.

Pilot Robert Zarracina has contributed articles on COA operations and has extensively studied the subject and talked with aviation experts about what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to PAO flight programs.

As a COA or PAO pilot you may be facing complete personal liability for flights you make. But you might just not be aware of the complexities of a COA operation because most people just don't know what they don't know about this subject.

This is a very confusing and murky topic. Before you fly as a COA pilot, you should attend this free webinar to become an expert about what you can and can't do.

This is a free educational presentation based on real-world experience and not a sales presentation for anything. There is nothing for sale and nothing to be purchased.
