Why Professional Test Pilots?
Professional Test Pilots
First, we have full size experience. This means that we understand
the world of full size aviation, its culture and its focus on safety, regulation and process.
We are also comfortable communicating with Flight Directors and all of the distractions that
accompany busy commercial aviation environments
Second, we have been working with academic institutions in the development
of UAVs for very many years and, more recently, with commercial organisations.
Third, we have, for decades,
earned our living from building, selling and testing the widest possible range of ‘smaller’
aerial vehicles and the equipment used to power and guide them. In addition, we also teach
people to fly.
So, we understand the technologies and the science that allows aircraft
to fly – or not! We also get to see the rigour, or lack of it, that the average ‘modeller’ brings
to his or her hobby.
We understand the world of ‘business’ – how it works and the
responsibilities and accountabilities that it brings. We take both of these very seriously
to the point where, over the years, we have built international reputations with manufacturers
We therefore understand the world of UAV flight testing in ways that the
majority of amateur pilots could not. Our skill sets, capabilities and business understanding
far outstrips even the most competent of amateur pilots.
We have a high reputation for attention to detail, consistency of
approach, a focus on goal attainment and protection of our clients’ investments.
In combination, all of these capabilities, when combined with our wide and deep
experience, will help to reduce any potential erosion of investment returns
and may bring your project to market faster.
