Advanced Pilot Training for Industrial Applications
We recommend a three-part training program to provide your pilots with the skills and knowledge required to safely operate in industrial environments and collect quality data that can inform your business decisions.
Introductory training covers the core principles of your organization’s drone program, such as maintenance guidelines, crew rest requirements, drug and alcohol policy, safety procedures, regulatory compliance, and more. Measure typically includes introductory training with drone training, below.
Drone pilots should receive hands-on training for the specific drone equipment they will be using, such as the DJI Inspire 2 or Phantom 4 Pro. This type of training sets a baseline for safe operation of aircraft and ensures that pilots can adequately take manual control of the aircraft at any time to avoid hazardous situations.
Pilots should be trained in the flight skills and data handling practices specific to your industry. This might include such things as advanced flight skills for operating around high-voltage transmission lines, capturing quality thermal imagery for a solar farm inspection, or setting up a grid pattern flight for volumetric analysis.
FEATURED INDUSTRY TRAINING
Your team will learn flight and data collection skills specific to your application, such as roof inspections for residential system design, large-scale pre-construction site assessments using ground control points, or solar plant inspections using grid flight patterns with RGB and thermal image capture.
Coal & Gas
Using drones to replace manual inspections of boilers and stacks results in huge savings. We’ll provide your team with the skills to safely conduct these inspections in a fraction of the time, with no scaffolding required. We can also teach your team to fly repeatable grid patterns for volumetrics to track stockpile usage.
Transmission & Distribution
Learn how to safely fly near high-voltage lines, maintain control of the drone in electromagnetic fields, and collect quality imagery of poles and towers. We can also teach how to conduct thermal inspections of substations, without having to shut them down.
Buildings & Construction
Measure can teach your teams how to safety inspect building roofs without climbing. We also teach flight and data collection skills for aerial mapping, pre-construction site analysis, volumetrics for cut and fill analysis, and construction progress monitoring.
