Please keep in mind the complexity of the airspace as well as the complexity of your operation when considering lead time for coordination. COMMUNICATIONS Effective, complete, and timely communication is critical to aviation safety. For the UAV user group, effective communication is a two-way responsibility and can be accomplished in numerous ways. From planning, to operations and emergencies, the following are perspectives on effective and necessary communications within the Air Traffic Control system. Communication by email. Preliminary planning and coordination can often be facilitated properly by email. Written accounts of planned exercise help to minimize potential errors and miscommunications.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
