A new COA/CAPS SOP Guidance Document has been uploaded into the DRONERESPONDERS Resource Center. This done in collaboration with FAA’s Steve Pansky, Mike O’Shea and other contributors.

This document walks you through the COA application process and includes screen shots of the online COA Application Process (CAPS).

To access, go to DRONERESPONDERS.ORG, click on the Members Tab, select Resource Center, select the “Starting a Program Folder”, then select the “COA Guidance” sub folder.

Great appreciation to the FAA’s Steve Pansky, Mike O’Shea among other contributors.

If you have additional questions, please contact me at

Chief Charles L. Werner (Ret.)
