Try practising some of these common Drone Pilot’s job interview questions by Pritish Kumar Halder:

1. What happens if a drone crashes?


How to answer:  If the drone pilot says they have never crashed they are probably lying or the job you are about to hire them for is going to be one of their first shoots.  Learning to fly drones takes practice, and mistakes are bound to happen.  I’ve been fortunate enough to never crash a drone on a client shoot, but have had a couple mishaps while practicing my craft.


Answer:  “After sending the drone to use we will review the data of the flight data recorder. This allows us to determine the cause of the crash (if unclear). We will simultaneously create a damage analysis and an estimate. The damage will then be repaired as quickly as possible. Since we typically have all spare parts in stock, the drone will usually be returned within a few days. If the drone is ordered, owner will promptly receive a replacement drone free of charge and will immediately be able to continue working.”


2. Which sensors do you use to stabilize the drone?


How to answer:   This is one of the most common questions you will be asked. Give an answer relevant to the skills and qualities relevant to the position you are applying to. The interviewer is trying to find if your strengths match the job. For example, if you are applying for a job regarding drone pilots where accuracy is an important issue, one of your strengths could be that you have an eye for detail.


Answer:  “We typically rely on the sensor data fusion of rotational speed-, acceleration-, compass-, barometric pressure- and one GPS sensor. The rotational speed- and acceleration sensors are used to determine the position of the aircraft in an area. A compass sensor is needed in order to correctly convert the GPS position data to capture the “line of vision” of the aircraft. The barometric pressure sensor is needed to accurately position the drone on the Z-axis (Altitude Hold). Using the consolidated position data and the GPS position data the drone can determine and maintain the X- and Y-axis (Position-Hold). In addition to the sensors they also require a number of micro-controllers, up to 10 depending on the drone, with various tasks.”


3. How drones are useful in agriculture sector?


How to answer:  Not all drone operators are the same. A qualified remote pilot in command can lead a safe and compliant aerial mission for agriculture field. But, the interviewer is aware of the wrong drone operator can potentially put property and lives at risk.  Therefore, in this question, the interviewer is looking for you to reflect on the professional skills needed to be a great pilot.


Answer:   “Drones can help farmers to optimize the use of inputs (seed, fertilizers, water), to react more quickly to threats (weeds, pests, fungi). Indeed, this equipment save time crop scouting (validate treatment/actions taken), and to improve variable-rate prescriptions in real time and estimate yield from a field. Moreover, agriculture drone empowers the farmer to adapt to specific environments and make mindful choices. The gained data helps regulate crop health, crop treatment, crop scouting, irrigation. Also carry out field soil analysis and crop damage assessments.

The drone survey helps boost crop yields and minimize time and expenses. Therefore, drone used in precision agriculture has a lot of benefits to farmers. Therefore, it allows them to save their money in managing their crop by increasing the yield and the productivity.”


Not every question you will encounter when interviewing for Drone Pilot’s position will be related to collect intelligence information or to produce aerial photographs supportive job. But those are the common topics interviewer can ask for selecting qualified candidate.
