How to maintain records of your RPA registrations
FlyFreely can help you keep track of any required registrations or licensing on your RPAS assets.
There are two basic parts to this process (assuming you've already completed the registration process in your jurisdiction)
- Register your RPA via the myCASA portal.
- Adding the relevant authority to your RPAs
- Setting up the RPA Register to show the status of this authority for each RPA.
Once you've set this up, you will have an 'at a glance' view of the registration status of each RPA in your inventory.
Step 1: Registration
Registration takes place on the myCASA portal. For instructions on registering your RPA, please see the video below or visit the CASA website.
Step 2: Adding Authorities
The first step is to add a 'registration' authority to each relevant RPA in your account. Scroll to the RPA widget on the main FlyFreely screen and click on the RPA.
Select the Authorities and Registrations tab, then click on the EDIT button. To narrow down the available authorities, you can select your jurisdiction and display only authorities available for that jurisdiction.
Click the Add RPA Registration button. In the authority details section you'll need to fill out the start and end dates from your registration / confirmation document. You can also attach a copy of the document for convenient record keeping and easy access. Click SAVE when you've completed this section.
The registration authority will now show up in the Authorities and Registrations tab, along with the start and end dates.
Step 3: Setting up the RPA Register
Now that we've applied the registration authority to the RPA, we need to configure the register so that the registration info appears. Select Organization Admin from the profile menu (top-right) and click on Authorities. Select the RPA Register button under the relevant authority (this will usually be your operators certificate / ReOC or excluded category notification authority).
If you haven't yet added your RPAs to the register, you can do so now (the details in this register should match those on your schedule 1. This allows you to generate an updates schedule 1 from the register any time you make changes). To include the registration status in the register, click the 'customize' button (3 dots) in the upper-right of the window. In the dropdown that appears, scroll to and select the 'RPA Registration' authority and click Add. Click Apply.
This will now appear as a new column on the register. You'll now be able to see which aircraft possess the registration authority. You can always access the details and registration document by clicking on the RPA name and selecting the Authorities and Registrations tab.
