WINGS Program Credit—1 credit for Basic Knowledge Topic 1 (see note below). Aeronautical Decision Making provides the tools for those who fly unmanned aircraft to make time-critical decisions. Unmanned aircraft are well suited for performing dull, dirty, and dangerous missions; therefore, operators of unmanned aircraft must be prepared to make good decisions in challenging flying environments. This course examines the fundamentals of risk analysis, decision-making processes, and conditions that contribute to flying risk. Practical methods to lower overall risk are examined throughout the course.
