SKYDRONE UAVS

 

UAV Advantages

 

  • Decreased equipment and operation costs allow for our services at a fraction of piloted craft inspections

  • Unmanned craft removes the potential for loss of life compared to piloted craft inspection scenarios

  • Zero operational network impact if structural collisions or catastrophic equipment failure occurs

  • Drones perform extreme close-in inspections and close up imagery unlike any piloted craft

  • Electric vehicle eliminates noise impact on livestock and wildlife populations

  • Environmentally friendly, zero emission electrical vehicles

  • Effectively zero habitat impact utilizing aerial vehicles

  • Cost effective aerial spur line and pole inspections

 

UAV Operations

 

  • Missions are performed in accordance with ICAO flight standards

  • Only licensed commercial and general aviation pilots operate drones

  • Inspection flight observers are all commercial and general aviation pilots.

  • Vehicles are flight certified, maintained and inspected in compliance with ICAO standards

 

UAV Field Requirements

 

  • Most weather conditions are acceptable for flight operations
