NSTS-1 English Course


National Standard Scenario NSTS-01 for operations in the visual range (VLOS) or with the first person view (FPV) performed with an unmanned aerial vehicle with a take-off mass of less than 4 kg

Conforms to the European regulations of the EU

Training NSTS-01 VLOS or FPV with a first-person view up to 4 kg - the training is conducted using the e-learning method in accordance with the latest European regulations and the program approved by the Civil Aviation Office (GUIDANCE NO. 15 PREZESA URZĘDU LOTNICTWA CYWILNEGO z dnia 29 grudnia 2020 r.)

Flights in operation NSTS-01

    • during flight, the unmanned aerial vehicle is kept at a distance of up to 120 m from the nearest point of the Earth's surface; distance measurement is adapted to the geographical characteristics of the terrain such as plains, hills, mountains;
    • when flying an unmanned aircraft up to 50 meters horizontally from an artificial obstacle with a height exceeding 105 meters, the maximum operating altitude may be increased up to 15 meters above the height of the obstacle;
    • flights are performed within the visual range of the VLOS of the pilot or at least one observer who maintains eye contact with the unmanned aerial vehicle in order to determine its position in relation to the pilot and in the airspace and to ensure a safe distance from other aircraft, obstacles, vehicles, people or animals ;
    • in VLOS operations without an aircraft observer, visual contact with the unmanned aircraft is permitted when the pilot checks the flight parameters transmitted by devices equipped with the unmanned aircraft;
    • in VLOS operations with an aircraft observer, it is permissible for the UAS observer not to be in the immediate vicinity of the pilot if two-way communication between the pilot and the observer is ensured and communication rules have been established.

How it's working?

    • register on our e-learning platform
    • choose a course,
    • pay for the theoretical course and exam,
    • get access to the e-learning platform, video materials, presentations, additional materials and control questions,
    • after completing the course and passing the internal examination, you receive a certificate of theoretical training completion
    • from our map (base) you choose the place of the practical course,
    • after completing the practical course, you take the final exam
    • after completing the documentation, we send everything to the Civil Aviation Authority and you receive a Qualification Certificate

Theoretical knowledge training lasts no less than 12 hours.

During these 12 hours, we will present you the following topics:

    • aviation regulations,
    • limitations of human possibilities,
    • operating procedures,
    • technical and operational measures to reduce the risk in the air,
    • general knowledge of unmanned aerial vehicle systems,
    • meteorology,
    • UAS flight performance, and
    • technical and operational measures to reduce the risk on the ground.
