Last week has seen the approval of three new remote pilots, among which are also the first two USA Remote Pilots for Sky-Futures. A leading name in Oil and Gas inspections through the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Sky-Futures is proud to be working with skilled American professionals. More qualifications have been given to 3 inspection engineers who have successfully passed the Inspection Engineer Camera Operator Course.
These skills and qualifications will allow the individuals to use unmanned aerial vehicles to perform all kinds of functions that would otherwise be too expensive or not logistically possible through the use of a helicopter or plane.
The company’s comprehensive internal training course includes flight training, ground school training, and inductions that are specific to the industry. The newly included members of the team will further operations growth in the United States after Sky-Futures was awarded a Federal Aviation Authority Section 333 exemption in the previous year. These members will be joining the VP of Operations, Jay Forte, to create the core team for business development in the United States.
According to Forte, the company’s new office in Houston needs talented and dedicated individuals who can take on the opportunity and increase new business. Since the drone industry is seeing a massive surge in investment and development, he sees a lot of success to come. The new remote pilots and inspection engineers will provide the company with unparalleled support to help improve existing operations. Their top-tier training from the United Kingdom will give them the ability to compete with any other UAV professional out there.
Sky-Futures has been awarded the prestigious UK Civil Aviation Authority National Qualified Entity status, which allows it to train remote pilots under the UK CAA’s authority and guidelines. The company uses these pilots to primarily inspect infrastructure for its onshore and offshore oil & gas clients.
