interface and log in on the mobile app. A user who is a pilot will have several additional tabs on their user profile containing pilot-specific information.
The Chief Pilot

Mission Approval Delegates

The Chief Maintenance Officer
can approve maintenance items. Each organisation may only have one Chief Maintenance Officer.
Maintenance Approval Delegates
can also approve maintenance items but are not restricted to a single user.
An Organisation Administrator
can create, edit and disable other users, and edit the organisation’s details.

The Receive Missions

The API Access
role is required to use the Drone Complier API.
