Flight Check

On this page you will find a flight check for the fawn rescue that we put together, which consists of a checklistflowchart, drone map and the DABS (Daily Airspace Bulletin Switzerland). You should keep the checklist in mind during all your flights. The flowchart, map, and DABS are aids to this checklist.
