Course Overview

Course Code:
Course Name:
Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) Remote Pilot Refresher Training
Course Description:
DOI Remote Pilots must complete UAS refresher training (A-452R) or approved equivalent every 24 months following the issuance of their OAS-30U.
Current DOI/USFS Remote Pilots participating in either A-450 or A-452R, as a student or instructor, will receive credit for refresher training. This training can be completed 4 months in advance or within 30-days after the date of expiration on the OAS-30U and shall be documented on the iat.gov website. Whether you complete A-452R before or after your expiration date, you will retain your original carding date.
Remote Pilots operating the low complexity UAS will be able to complete this requirement via distance learning opportunities. Remote Pilots operating more complex aircraft may be required to attend a refresher in person.
Students that attend a distance learning module are expected to review and fly the "Basic flight exercises." You can find them on the DOI A-450 Basic Remote Pilot web page. https://sites.google.com/a/firenet.gov/oas-a450/ Navigate to the "A-450 Basic RP course" tab and then to the "Flight training exercises and OAS-69U" link. You may also find copies attached to this page. Please complete your flights prior to attending A-452R, or before your expiration date of your OAS-30U card, which ever is first.
Primary Audience:
- A-450 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) Basic Remote Pilot Course.
- Current qualification as a DOI remote pilot.
