Practice recovering from this position. • Practice take offs and landings 6
    • Phase 3: Flight Instruction • Day 1 – Pre-flight briefing – Manually fly fixed wing UAV • Day 2 – Pre-flight briefing – Manually fly rotor wing UAV (hex/quad/heli-copter) • Day 3 – Pre-flight briefing – Program autopilot – Fly on autopilot 7
