11. ATC will provide the same separation service to UA as they provide to manned IFR
12. ATC personnel will be trained to manage UAS operations. UA performance
information will be made available to ATC personnel to assist them in managing UAS
13. The UAS will be operated by a remote pilot who has responsibility for the safety of
flight operations and is appropriately trained, rated and qualified for navigation by sole
reference to instruments.
14. The remote pilot will be qualified to file an instrument flight plan and capable of
accepting and complying with any instructions or clearances as directed by ATC, using
an ATC radio onboard the UA, with the exception that the remote pilot would not
accept some visual clearance requests. Development of a complete set of remote pilot
qualifications is beyond the scope of this MASPS.
15. The remote pilot will maintain continuous two-way communication with the required
ATC facilities while in controlled airspace, and if necessary re -establish that
communication by other means if a Lost C2 Link state occurs.
16. The remote pilot is required to comply with written or graphical routes and instructions
published in Standard Instrument Departures, Standard Arrival Routes, and Instrument
Approach Procedures for aircraft that use traditional runways for launch and recovery.
17. The remote pilot will be authorized to use the DAA system to help the UA to remain
well clear using current or revised rules analogous to 14 CFR §91.113 and §91.181.
The remote pilot is authorized to deviate from an IFR clearance in order to maneuver
to remain well clear from other aircraft and to avoid a collision. The remote pilot must
notify ATC of any deviations as soon as practical. The remote pilot will prevent
excessive deviation from the cleared route to prevent further disruption of near by air
traffic. Refer to DO-365 Appendix A for more details of the DAA MOPS.
18. The remote pilot follows IFR arrival and departure procedures, which may be tailored
to UAS operations.
19. Other aircraft at the same airport as the UA may be on an arrival or departure in a VFR
pattern while the UAS is following instrument procedures.
20. The UAS may operate at airports with or without a tower, as well as suitable off-airport
sites. The remote pilot will maintain continuous two-way communications on the
Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF) when operating at non-towered
21. The UAS may encounter aircraft that are being separated by ATC and aircraft that are
not being separated by ATC.
22. A spectrum management organization will give the remote pilot an initial set of
frequency assignments for use in terrestrial and/or satellite connections during the
flight of the UA. That set of frequencies may change during the flight of the UA.
Those assignments would be among those frequencies approved for UAS usage by the
FAA and FCC. The actions of that spectrum management organization are beyond the
scope of this MASPS.
1. The CS will be certified to provide sufficient and reliable information to the remote
pilot to support all tasks allocated to the remote pilot, e.g., aviating, communicating
