RCAPA operational guidelines

Mission Statement:

RCAPA is an association organized to promote and gain recognition for the rapidly expanding field of commercial and recreational aerial photography, videography and multispectral data collection from remotely piloted aircraft, and to act as a source of information on all technical aspects of producing commercially viable data from safe, remotely piloted aircraft.


The association will create suggested operational guidelines for self-regulation of it’s members for insurance and financing purposes. The association, as a cohesive group, will become a unified representative voice regarding operational issues with national, state, and local governments. Furthermore, the association will share, best practices, lessons learned, latest techniques, and technology trends amongst its members (both manufacturers and end-users) and the public to demonstrate the positive applications for remote sensing technologies.
