ICAO Applications (fillable)

ICAO Fillable Applications are especially useful as they can be uploaded to a State's website for online completion by operators.

The second form, Expedited Authorization for Urgent UAS Operations, is for urgent requests seeking an expedited approval. 

Advisory Circular 102-37

Advisory Circular 102-37 was developed by a working group of the Dangerous Goods Panel and focuses on the carriage of dangerous goods on board UA. The basis for this AC is intended for circumstances when the full provisions of the Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (Doc 9284) are not appropriate or necessary, due to the nature of the UA operation.

Safety Managment Systems (SMS) for UAS Operators

SMS is as important for small organizations as it is for large complex organizations. By developing an SMS program at the outset, UAS Operators will be able to expand SMS as the organization grows. While the principles of SMS are the same, there are no templates to follow because each program  is specific to the UAS operator. The safety management information that is provided in this section serves as an example that UAS operators may wish to review, as they formulate their unique safety program.

GlobalMedic manages many non-emergency and capacity building programs, yet the majority of their work is critical intervention in the wake of disaster and crisis. They have made available their eighteen page Mission Planning document that includes all facets of a proposed operation including a risk assessment. The second document made available is their three-page Field Documentation Form to record details about the site of the operation, mapping and flight records, and data collection and reporting protocols for the organization.
