Appendix h: “Revisiones y pruebas a incluir en el programa de mantenimiento de una aeronave pilotada por control remoto (art. 50, 3.d.5 y 50.6)” (RPAS Maintenance Program).
Summary: Regular revisions after the RPAS assembling are essential to guarantee the safety performance of the aerial vehicle; from the structure to the electrical connectors, fuel, battery and on-board equipment. A complete functional test, including ground and air segment, will be also necessary. In these scheduled revisions the personnel will check the operability of the Drone system, and the communications equipment will also be inspected before the first flight of the day is performed. Every six months a similar inspection program to the first one described must be made, and every 3 years a deeper and detailed revision must be executed.
