    Hi Guys,

    Have my flight exam on Wednesday (hoping for good weather) - to get my PFAW here in the UK.

    I have everything in place, but I do have one question for anyone that has done the test before that I do not know the correct procedure for. At some stage I know that a simulated incursion will occur, when a 'member of the public' will enter the flying area.

    Whilst I know that I have to cease the current manoeuvre - do I just take the UAV up into the air to a safe height & hold it there, do I move it away from the MOP (to a distance of 50m), or do I land?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Martin.

    Sorry I can't answer our question, but I am also looking at doing the same course. Do you mind if I ask where/who you did the course with? Also, where are you based in the UK?

    Hi,

    I did my flight school ground theory in Leeds, and am doing the flight exam in Kineton, Warwickshire.

    If you look up EuroUSC, they will give you all the details you need.

    Hope that helps,
    Martin.

    I believe you must land in your designated safe area

    Hey Quad, are the regs the same in UK as Canada, eh?
