Why are Pre-Flight Checklists Important? 

  1. They help minimize the risk of drone crashes, property damage, or danger to individuals on-site by reminding pilots of your safety procedures and standard operating procedures.
  2. It makes it easy to document if your drone pilots are compliant and creates a paper trail for every flight.
