FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ACTION DRONE INC. OPENS INVITATION TO PILOT CONTRACTORS NETWORK
Chula Vista, CA, May 23, 2017 – Action Drone, Inc. (AD) announces invitation for experienced and certified sUAS pilots to join their Pilot Contractor Network. This selected group of teams is a network of certified pilots who will be working a global contract acquired by Action Drone Inc., that requires Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) inspections for 55 different countries. Ten teams will be chosen for work orders in Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
Different contracts may also be assigned to contractors. If other contracts arise from different industries in specific areas, AD may request area contractors to fulfill that service (all areas not guaranteed). To qualify to be an AD pilot contractor, prior to training, pilots will expect to purchase enrollment fee for the AD WTG Inspection Certification, have a valid drone business license, business and medical insurance, and must be a legal registered UAS operator for their country with completed UAS certifications, registration, and documents – no exceptions.
Pilots are required to go through mandatory training and safety training provided by the customer – as regulated by law. In this two-stage training, the first stage will be onsite the AD Denmark offices and undisclosed field training. WTG companies require operator teams must have a pilot (PIC) and a camera operator (VO). This might not be the same case in future contracts.
Conditions in WTG field locations are harsh – sometimes extreme conditions are very cold or very hot environments with winds gusting over 55 mph (88 km/h). In this type of weather and wind conditions, AD will expect their pilots to be able to skillfully (and physically in good health) perform tasks and fulfill the contract.
Attending the training does not automatically qualify pilots to be contractors. PICs will be examined and assessed by their technical flying skills, safety operations, first person view (FPV) operations, visual light of sight (VLOS) operations, and the level of communication with VO – effectively and efficiently – in navigating mission at hand. The AD WTG Inspection Certification does not guarantee work orders. The training is intended to prepare contractors and impart necessary knowledge and skills to perform difficult drone related industrial inspections.
Enrollment starts June 1st, 2017 and will end on June 20, 2017. Each class will have a maximum of 6 students, offered on a first come, first served basis. Cost of training per person is $3,500 (USD). Classes also include business development meetings to expand their drone business accordingly. Upon registration, details on schedules, class curriculums, and logistics will be discussed. The 1st class is July 10–18th; 2nd class July 24 – Aug 1st; and the 3rd class Aug 7–15th.
Action Drone is in development with a new sUAS specifically to create the most efficient methodology and best practices for inspecting WTGs worldwide. For further information and to schedule Q&A session appointments, contact:
