Description

Training Course with some questions and answers developed considering the EU Regulation 2019-947 - UAS_OPEN_020 that defines the syllabus related the obtaining of the OPEN A1-A3 qualification.

The OPEN A1-A3 qualification permits the use of UAS with a MTOM (maximum take of mass) below 900 grams in urban areas and 25 kg in not urban areas.

The limit of 900 grams is considered for UAS with C1 marking. The limit is 500 grams for UAS without C1 marking (time limit 2023).

Operations in not urban areas are related to operations developed at 150 meters from urban areas and 50 meters from crowds or groups.

To get the OPEN A1-A3 qualification, the student will have to perform an exam on a specific website developed by the National Civil Aviation Authority. The qualification is valid in the entire European Union.

In Italy, for example, is it possible to perform the exam paying 31 eur. The exam is composed by 40 questions and it takes 60 minutes.

The instructor, Eng. Fazio Michele, is owner of a Training Center recognized by Italian Civil Aviation Authority with ref. ENAC.CA.APR.043 and actually has an experience of more than 90000 minutes of practical activity and 2000 hrs of theoretical activity (in Italian language only). This experience should define him as one of the instructor with the highest number of hours of theoretical and practical training in Italy and probably in Europe.

If interested, you can contact the Instructor using the specific form.

I got a Master Degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Salento on October 19, 2010 with a rating of 108/110. After winning the Call Principi Attivi 2012, a regional prize for the best start-up idea, where I obtained the first position, I am today Accountable Manager of Skyline Srls, a company specialized in design and development of remotely piloted aircraft systems up to 25 kg, a company located in Bitetto (BA) and Matera, in Italy, and Skyline Unmanned Systems LTD, a company located in London.

Winner of the Start Cup Puglia award in 2013 for drone applications in viticulture, and holder of a patent as a utility model for a vertical take-off and landing hydrogen drone, I had the opportunity to participate in the First World Conference on RPAS related technologies held at Le Bourget Airport in Paris in 2015 (the only Italian), with a paper related to the design criteria to be able to use remotely piloted aircraft systems in areas with high population density (hot topic of these days) and the only italian engineer to partecipate at the SESAR Working Group which made it possible to create the SESAR Drones Outlook Study, a document that describes the forecast evolution of the sector up to 2050.

The document is available on the web.

Member of the board of Assorpas from 2014 to 2016, member of UVS International from 2014 till today and officially in the Board of UVS International on behalf of Assorpas in 2016, I am currently one of the RPAS Pilot and Instructors with more theoretical and practical hours in Italy, with more than 90000 minutes of activity as Instructor (equal to about 1500 hours, excluding intermediate activities, extra activities not included in the mandatory training and activities carried out on behalf of Avioclub Montalto Dora in the period 2014-2017) and about 2000 hours of theoretical activity carried out both with regard to the training of students (mostly trained with individual lessons) and with regard to theoretical activity carried out at the Technical Aeronautical Institute “Euclide” of Bari (which did not lead to the relative obtaining of the qualification), excluding activities carried out for institutions, third parties and the theoretical teaching activities carried out on behalf of Avioclub Montalto Dora, as well as RPAS Safety Adviser recognized by the National Civil Aviation Authority (about 81 figures with this role in Italy today).

I constantly collaborate in numerous technical tables, often free of charge, regarding the development of regulations for the use of drones, closely related to the development of technologies.

I was owner of the only consulting organization recognized by Italian Civil Aviation Authority for Southern Italy until 2017 (the consulting organizations have all been removed from the website of Italian Civil Aviation Authority) and I have 2 publications on the RPAS Yearbook 2015-2016.

Laureatomi in Ingegneria Aerospaziale presso l’Università del Salento il 19 Ottobre 2010 con valutazione 108/110, in seguito alla vincita del Bando Principi Attivi 2012, dove ho ottenuto la prima posizione, svolgo attività di Accountable Manager per conto di Skyline Srls, società specializzata in progettazione e sviluppo di aeromobili a pilotaggio remoto fino a 25 kg, società ubicata a Bitetto e Matera, e Skyline Unmanned Systems LTD, società ubicata a Londra.

Vincitore del premio Start Cup Puglia nel 2013 per applicazioni di droni in viticoltura, e titolare di brevetto come modello d’utilità per drone ad idrogeno a decollo ed atterraggio verticale, ho avuto la possibilità di partecipare alla Prima Conferenza Mondiale sul settore dei droni tenuta presso l’Aeroporto Le Bourget a Parigi nel 2015 (unico italiano), con un paper in merito ai criteri di progettazione per poter utilizzare gli aeromobili a pilotaggio remoto in aree ad elevata densità abitativa (tema scottante dei tempi odierni) e al SESAR Working Group che ha permesso di realizzare il SESAR Drones Outlook Study (unico italiano), documento che descrive l’evoluzione previsionale del settore fino al 2050. Il documento è disponibile sul web.

Membro del consiglio direttivo di Assorpas dal 2014 al 2016, membro di UVS International dal 2014 ad oggi e ufficialmente nel Board di UVS International per conto di Assorpas nel 2016, attualmente sono uno degli Istruttori di Piloti di APR con più ore teoriche e pratiche in Italia con 87780 minuti di attività come Istruttore (pari a 1463 ore, escludendo le attività intermedie, le attività extra non previste nell’addestramento obbligatorio e le attività svolte per conto di Avioclub Montalto Dora nel periodo 2014-2017) e circa 2000 ore di attività teorica svolta sia in merito alla formazione degli allievi (in gran parte formati con lezione individuale) sia in merito ad attività teorica effettuata presso l’Istituto Tecnico Aeronautico Euclide di Bari (poi non sfociata nel relativo ottenimento del titolo), escludendo le attività svolte per enti terzi e le attività didattiche teoriche svolte per conto di Avioclub Montalto Dora oltre che RPAS Safety Adviser riconosciuto dall’Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile (circa 80 figure con tale ruolo in Italia).

Collaboro costantemente in numerosi tavoli tecnici, spesso a titolo gratuito, riguardanti lo sviluppo dei regolamenti per l’uso dei droni, strettamente correlati allo sviluppo delle tecnologie. Ultimo evento cui ho avuto modo di partecipare è il workshop tenutosi in EASA relativo agli Scenari Standard STS-01 e STS-02.

Unica organizzazione di consulenza per il Sud Italia fino al 2017 (le organizzazioni consulenti sono tutte decadute), ho n.2 pubblicazioni sull’RPAS Yearbook 2015-2016.

Profilo conforme al Criterio 2 del Decreto Interministeriale del 6 Marzo 2013 relativo ai “Criteri di qualificazione della figura del formatore per la salute e sicurezza sul lavoro (articolo 6, comma 8, lett. m-bis)".
