FlightSafety will continue to help DRONAMICS pilots and engineers with cutting-edge training.
The agreement will ensure that DRONAMICS’ remotely piloted aircraft meet the highest operational and safety standards.
As DRONAMICS’ operations expand, future plans include the codevelopment of a combined academy to fulfil expanding resourcing requirements.
May 2022, London – DRONAMICS, the world’s premier developer and operator of middle-mile freight drones, today announced a collaboration with FlightSafety International on an advanced training programme for its remote pilots and engineers. With over 70 years of expertise, FlightSafety International is the foremost training provider for pilots and maintenance workers. The EASA, FAA, and a number of other aviation regulatory bodies have authorised its training programmes. The continuous relationship will ensure that the DRONAMICS Black Swan aircraft’s growing pool of pilots meets the highest industry requirements for operational performance and safety.
The alliance, which was announced at this year’s EBACE (The European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition), comes at a critical time for the company, as it prepares for the maiden commercial flights of its flagship Black Swan aircraft later this year. To satisfy DRONAMICS’ growing resourcing needs, the two firms are collaborating on the construction of a training academy for UAV pilots in the future.
“At Dronamics, we believe that safety is the cornerstone of a successful operation. This is why we’ve partnered with Flight Safety International to provide our pilots and engineers with ongoing support in cutting-edge training. Flight Safety will ensure that our remote commercial pilots are always trained to and maintain the highest standards in operational excellence and safety as we move closer to our first commercial flights later this year. Our future ambitions include collaborating on the creation of a school that will prepare us to fulfil the resourcing needs of operating the world’s first drone freight airline.” Dronamics COO Sergio Oliveira e Silva
