Identify the hazardous attitude or characteristic a remote pilot displays while taking risks in order to impress others?

  • Impulsivity.
  • Invulnerability.
  • Macho.

You are a remote pilot for an insurance comapny. You are to use your UA to inspect a roof in a remote area 15 hours away from your home office. After the drive, fatigue impacts your abilities to complete your assignment on time. Fatigue can be recognized

  • easily by an experienced pilot.
  • as being in an impaired state.
  • by an ability to overcome sleep deprivation.

Safety is an important element for a remote pilot to consider prior to operating an unmanned aircraft system. To prevent the final "link" in the accident chain, a remote pilot must consider which methodology?
