  • BSI Flex 1903 v1:2023-08 formally released

    This is an interactive version 1 of BSI Flex 1903 v1.0:2023-08. The aim of the standard is to create a lexicon of standard terms and acronyms used in this sector.

    We welcome your engagement and comments on this version to help inform the development of the next version. Comments on clauses or terms in the standard should be made via the BSI Standards Development Portal. We would also welcome general feedback including what terms could be considered for future versions and these can be made through our dedicated feedback page.

remote pilot in command (RPIC)



  • Definition

    remote pilot designated as having responsibility for the uncrewed aircraft in-flight


    NOTE: The RPIC holds the leadership position within a designated flight crew. In a multi-crew operation, the flight crew might consist of more than one remote pilot, and control of the uncrewed aircraft might be handed over between them at various points during the flight. However, in such cases, only one remote pilot is designated as the remote pilot in command, and this does not normally change over the course of a single flight.
