UAS Type Certification Activity: Pre-coordination

It is positioned as a preparation for smooth implementation of certification activities. Pre-coordination is a voluntary procedure, but it is advisable to conduct it in order to implement certification activities smoothly.
Pre-coordination in Class 1 Type Certification is mainly intended to agree on general practical matters and coordinate the design concept of the aircraft, various standards to be used, an outline of the specifications of the unmanned aircraft, and the policy for proving conformity to safety and uniformity standards.
The following is a summary of the perspectives on the implementation by JCAB.

The purpose of pre-coordination in Class 2 Type Certification is to adjust the prospects for whether or not inspections can be conducted, mainly from the perspective of the expected schedule to obtain Type Certification and the manpower required by registered inspection organization.
