Have a look at these sample pre-flight checklists to get a better idea of what might need to be included.
Now, based on these examples and the prep work you have completed last week, have a go at creating your own pre-flight checklist for the Murramarang South Coast Walk surveying project.
For each checklist section (e.g., project-specific details, information on the drone, safety and security compliance, and meteorological conditions) add 4 to 7 fields you would need to fill in. Format your checklist as a table (in Word, Excel or another program of your choice), save your final document, and upload it using the form below. Remember, at this point we are just creating a checklist template, so you don’t have to actually complete your document, though you can definitely give that a try, if you are certain about what you would like to say in certain fields. You can come back and update/reupload the checklist at any time.
