Details of Proposer

UAS Information

Make and Model
Year of Manufacture
Serial Number
Maximum Take-off weight (kg)
How many hours has the UAS type flown since production
Single or Multi-Engine
Engine type
What is the engine overhaul / ultimate life on the engines
Maximum operating rangeta
Maximum operating endurance
Hull Sum to be Insured
Required Liability Limit

Is the UAS to be insured a prototype/development vehicle, or a series production machine?

How does UAV take-off? conventional undercarriage/ launch rail/ rocket assissted etc.

How does the UAS recover/land? Recovery net, parachute, conventional landing on an undercarriage etc.

Do primary flight control surfaces have any form of control redundancy?

if yes, please supply details

If the engine/generator fails, is there any alternate electrical power supply (i.e. onboard battery) to provide electrical power for communication link and controls? Could the vehicle attempt a glide return to base?

In the event of any malfunction during the flight, are there any fail-safe systems (auto recovery / parachute system)?

If “yes” please supply details.

UAS Uses

(Estimate hours per year) UAS 1 UAS 2 UAS 3
Aerial Surveying / Photography
Powerline Inspection
Agriculture Operation
Sporting events / Festivals
Total Hours

Are any unusual manoeuvres being carried out?

If possible, please provide a summary on the proposed flight test schedule (i.e. how many hours of basic manoeuvre, cruise, high altitude / low altitude etc. to be flown)

Will any take-off or landings be carried out in poor visibility or at night (either be external pilot or autonomous)?

Is the UAS operated in controlled airspace or over built-up areas? (please specify)

Ground Control Station & Communication

Operates inline of sight or GPS
Take-off / Landing – fully autonomous or external pilot
Single or Dual communications
Mean time between failure (MTBF)
Is there any form of comms “Relay” employed?
Communication type
Communication range

If communication / contact is lost in flight can the UAS return to base on its own?

If yes, what is the procedure for attempting to retain contact with the UAS once it is overhead the ground station / recovery zone?

What is the operational range / radius of the UAS from the ground station?
