Global Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Regulations (AS324)

- Created (as experimental course AS395AA in 2015/2016) and regularly teach (as AS324 now a permanent part of the Bachelor of Science in Unmanned Aircraft degree program at the Prescott Campus) courses with CANVAS in Global UAS Regulations. As the UAS industry continues to grow both domestically and internationally, there is a developing need for students, graduating college and entering the UAS workforce, to understand the regulatory and airspace environment surrounding these operations. This course offers the framework for understanding this global perspective. It is organized by world region, focusing on those nations closest to the US in terms of proximity and business contacts. There is first a detailed description of the airspace followed by the specific regulations pertaining to the operation of UAS in that airspace. Sometimes the rules change depending on the purpose of use, namely, public (governmental), commercial (non-governmental), educational, and hobby or recreational. Where this is the case, these nuances are also addressed.  

- Created several related webpages utilizing video and slideshows, Prezi, and PowerPoint for class presentations (www.sarahnilsson.org).

- Created and administers 5 exams per semester, consisting of at least 10 short answer open-ended and multiple-choice questions, per semester to evaluate student understanding and progress.

The FAA Airman Certificate Standards (ACS) require knowledge in the following five areas: Regulations; Airspace Classification and Operating Requirements; Weather; Loading and Performance; and Operations. This is accomplished by the familiarization with regulations (14 CFR Part 107), airspace classification, operating requirements, and flight restrictions, aviation weather sources and effects of weather on sUAS, sUAS loading, emergency procedures, crew resource management, radio communication procedures, performance of sUAS, physiological effects of drugs and alcohol, aeronautical decision making and judgment, airport operations, and maintenance and preflight inspection procedures.
