A Drone Pilot is responsible for operating a drone, which is sometimes called an unmanned aerial system (UAS). Drones are operated remotely, which is why Drone Pilots are also known as Remote Pilots. A Drone Pilot controls a drone, causing it to take off, stay on course, and land safely. Also, Drone Pilots conduct safety tests, oversee vehicle performance, and assess drone systems’ capabilities. They may also operate cameras or other equipment the drone carries.
