    ASTM F2635

    Abstract

    This classification provides a set of definitions and categories for the certification and licensing of Unmanned Aircraft (UA) pilots. It is designed for use by both industry and regulatory authorities applicable to UA across the entire size, weight and performance continuum, and is guided by the following principles: match existing regulations for manned aircraft to the maximum extent practical; similar words in other standards or regulations shall have similar meaning herein; avoid burdening regulatory agencies and users with an overabundance of new terms and definitions; and anticipate adoption by military and government users, although targeted primarily at commercial and private users.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This classification covers a set of definitions and categorization for the certification and licensing of Unmanned Aircraft (UA) pilots. It is designed for use by both industry and regulatory authorities applicable to UA across the entire size, weight and performance continuum. In creating this classification, contributors were guided by the following principles:

    1.1.1 Parallel existing regulations for manned aircraft to the maximum extent practical.

    1.1.2 Similar words in other standards or regulations shall have similar meaning herein (e.g., 14 CFR Part 61 and FAA Notice 07-01, and Australias CASR Part 101).

    1.1.3 Avoid burdening regulatory agencies and users with an overabundance of new terms and definitions. Where new terms are required, their meanings shall strive to be self-evident.

    1.1.4 Although targeted primarily at commercial and private users, the standard should anticipate adoption by military and government users.

    1.2 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.
