The mission planning in airborne Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing applications, depending on the system of acquisition and by the adopted platform (such as rotary and fixed wing aircrafts, glider, airship, manned or unmanned), is the first and essential step to ensure the success of a survey mission. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview on mission planning techniques using passive optical sensors. The basic concepts related to the usage of the most common sensor technologies are described, along with the several possible scenarios that may be afforded by using modern airborne sensors. Several examples of flight plans are illustrated and discussed to highlight correct methods, procedures and tools for data acquisition in the case of different types of manned and unmanned airborne missions. In particular, the flight planning with more recent technologies of digital passive optical airborne sensors will be dealt with, including frame cameras and multi-/hyperspectral push-broom sensors. Furthermore, in order to ensure the complete success of an airborne mission, some up-to-date solutions to know in advance the weather conditions (cloud cover, height of the sun, wind, etc.) and the GNSS satellite configuration are illustrated.
