The protocol includes the following requirements: 

  • Obtain specific written permission for each flight or mission: apply online
  • Part 107 FAA Remote Pilot Certificate.
  • Virginia Tech UAS training; available through Canvas here
  • Aircraft must be registered with the university via the online flight application. 

Commercial and third-party operations will have additional requirements.
