Drone pilot training program

Usually everyone who tries can take off and land the drone. But the questions arise at the time when the drone is lifted in the air: what to focus on? How to handle it properly? What to do if the drone does not move or flies away?

Learn the rules of air traffic and learn to pilot a drone! The training program is created for the participants to acquire the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills. To make everyone feel safely and confidentially when starting his/her first individual flights.

Agriculture

The use of drone technology in agriculture provides an opportunity for convenient monitoring and efficient management, planning of the necessary raw materials, timely eradiction of unwanted pests and diseases in order to increase crop productivity and quality.

Security

Drones can provide substantial support and benefits to the security industry so that the persons in charge can make desicions quickly and act effectively. Drones can help in search for missing people, to monitor people in mass activities, to provide site guarding from the air and react more quickly to reports of intrusion.

Construction

The drone technology helps to follow and monitor the construction processes from A to Z faster, easier and more efficiently than before - construction site inspection and measurement, construction mapping and 3D modelling, safety aspects on the construction site, risk management, process photo fixation etc.

Urban planning

The use of drone technology provides an opportunity to improve the quality of urban landscape and save resources during urban planning processes: effective area surveys, urban mapping and 3D modelling, use of photo and video materials to visualise the ideas in public consultations, the use of data for traffic flow monitoring and analysis.

Infrastructure

There are various infrastructure objects, the management of which involves both the risks to human safety and high costs, as well as equipment downtime after the survey, e.g. communication towers, power lines, multi-storey buildings, road infrastructure etc. The drone technology allows to inspect the various objects in a shorter period of time, significantly reducing both costs and human risks.
