Thanks again Njoro.
The problem is the updating of the Ops manual.
From page 29 of the CAA’s Ops / Systems manual template :
1.1 Details of design and manufacturing organisation(s)
Provide details of the designer and manufacturer of the unmanned aircraft including any
technical and design standards adopted, that may or may not be aviation related and that
may add to the safety argument. Where possible, this should include evidence of test and
evaluation if available.
Provide details of any recognised standards to which equipment relevant to the application
has been designed, built and tested, for example, aeronautical standards such as
EUROCAE and RTCA, or product standards such as ISO, ASTM, STANAG and BSI.
1.2 The design flight envelope (UAS performance characteristics)
Provide a full description of the flight envelope including, but not limited to:
the aircraft’s flight duration/endurance and maximum range;
the maximum radio range of the C2 Link;
the service ceiling/maximum achievable operating height;
the minimum airspeed required to maintain safe flight, i.e. the minimum manoeuvring
speed or stall speed (if applicable);
the available glide distances (where appropriate);
the environmental and weather limitations;
the effects of differing payloads on the flight envelope.
1.3 UAS characteristics and design features
Provide specifications and characteristics of the unmanned aircraft, including, but not
the aircraft type, i.e. multirotor, fixed wing etc.;
its overall dimensions;

its mass with and without fuel;
the maximum payload that can be carried;
the kinetic energy impact value;
Indication of sound power level if available.
Photographs and detailed or schematic diagrams may be included
How do I go about providing details of design and manufacturing organisation when it’s an own build?
Or indeed the “recognised standards”.
There’s nothing that states you may not use an own build for commercial purposes but it’s just a case of where to start.
Just looking for ideas of where to start or any reading material I could start with really.
As ever, thanks for any ideas.
