    Significance and Use

    The purpose of this practice is to provide guidance to owners, mechanics, airports, regulatory officials, and aircraft and component manufacturers who may accomplish maintenance, repairs, and alterations on a light unmanned aircraft system (UAS). In addition, this practice covers the format and content of maintenance manuals and instructions for the maintenance, repair, and alteration of light UAS. The light UAS can be operated as a commercial aircraft or as a sport aircraft. This practice states the requirements for the maintenance of light commercial UAS. These same requirements may be used for the sport light UAS with the provisions shown. The maintenance requirements are divided between the aircraft and the ground equipment. The aircraft contains the air data terminal and the ground station controls the nearby ground data terminal. Therefore, the data link is not listed as a separate component, but has elements in the aircraft and near the ground station that is called the ground data terminal.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice provides guidelines for the qualifications to accomplish the various levels of maintenance on certificated light unmanned aircraft system (UAS). In addition, it provides the content and structure of maintenance manuals for aircraft, ground control station, and data links that are operated as a light unmanned aircraft system (UAS).

    This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
