  • Definition

    pilot in control of an uncrewed aircraft’s flight path, who might also be the remote pilot in command (RPIC) (3.1.119)


    NOTE 1 The handover of control of the uncrewed aircraft (UA) (3.1.134) can be a normal aspect of certain operations and occur several times during a single flight.

    NOTE 2 Handovers are required for various reasons, including long flight times where rest periods for the handling pilot are needed, training activities where control is passed between instructor and student, and due to the system’s command and control architecture.
