a series of short, regularly spaced eye movements to search each 10-degree sector.


A local TV station has hired a remote pilot to operate their small UA to cover breaking news stories. The remote pilot has had multiple near misses with obstacles on the ground and two small UAS accidents. What would be a solution for the news station to improve their operating safety culture?

The news station should recognize hazardous attitudes and situations and develop standard operating procedures that emphasize safety.
