ABSTRACT: The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) conducted 56 hours of unmanned aircraft operations between February 2017 and April 2018. Some operations were conducted under the small unmanned aircraft rule (Part 107) established by the Federal Aviation Administration, while some were conducted under the terms of a Certificate of Authorization from the FAA. Different operating divisions of AGFC have used unmanned aircraft to pursue different goals. We describe a training program, operations conducted by the Fisheries, Wildlife, Communications, and Enforcement divisions of AGFC. Additionally, we disclose brief reports on 4 accidents experienced by AGFC unmanned aircraft. Considerations for future training programs are described.
