That ugly mess of ENAC

That the problem of the ENAC website, following the hacker attack suffered, was serious was understood almost immediately. The site was in fact unreachable from the beginning of July (editor’s note 9th July u.s.), and then returned partially usable on 17th July u.s., except for the online services section still down.

Only on July 31st, ENAC, through the “Provision GENDISP-DG-31/07 / 2020-0000027-P”, announced the suspension of the requirement of the pilot certificate “Non-Critical Operations” requirement (online drone license ), pursuant to art. 21 c.1 of the Regulation “Remote Piloted Air Vehicles” – Edition 3 “, Amendment 1 of 14 July 2020, until next 1st September 2020.

This obligation is therefore temporarily frozenuntil 1st September – only for those who drive a drone for recreational purposes up to 25 kg in weight. Instead, it remains valid for those who use a drone for professional purposes.

License suspension – Not abolition!

As is clear from the previous lines, the obligation to obtain the online drone license for “Non-Critical Operationsremains valid. ENAC obviously needs more time to secure its IT systems, especially the part relating to online services which is still unavailable.

So during the month of August, the APR pilots who use the drone for recreational activities, can fly without a license.

One wonders why ENAC has deprived the possibility of flying with the drone, for the entire month of July, given that it should have been aware of the damage suffered and the consequent inconvenience caused to the aspiring APR pilots.

As already said instead, professional pilots (or rather those who yearn to become such), must be in possession of both the “Non-Critical Operations” certificate and the VLOS certificate for “Critical Operations“, as it is necessary before passing the exam for the online license, to then improve with theory and practice with the ad hoc course for Critical Operations.

Since therefore the tests for the online drone license will be available again no earlier than 1st September 2020, during this month of August, in addition to the possibility of flying with the drone for recreational purposes (but not at sea !!!, and in this regard I invite you to read the article “Air Rules – Ban on the use of drones at sea“), it is possible for those who have yet to take the drone pilot certificate for “Non-Critical Operations“, to use part of their free time for test preparation!

For this purpose, 4mydrone, has prepared free, printable and downloadable Ebooks after registering on the Newsletter, for the preparation of the exam tests for the online qualification.

The Ebooks will contain the topics related to the subjects under examination defined by ENAC during the test phase of the online license, namely:

  • Air Safety
  • Aeronautical regulation
  • Airspace restrictions
  • Limitations of human performances
  • Operating procedures
  • General knowledge of APR (UAS)
  • Confidentiality and data protection
  • Insurance
  • Security.

The Ebooks structured so as to be able to focus on the fundamental aspects of the exam subjects, are rich in graphic info in order to facilitate the reading and learning of the test subjects.
