1.7 Flying with a visual observer

During a flight, a remote pilot may be assisted by a visual observer, who literally acts as a second pair of eyes to support the pilot. Binoculars or other visual aids are not allowed! The visual observer may help the pilot keep the UAS away from any obstacles or warn the pilot of any dangers. The pilot can also rely on a visual observer when flying in first-person view (FPV), a method used to operate an UAS based on a visual system connected to the UAS’s camera.
