The Elios 2 drone has become the ‘first to be formally approved as a tool for inspection.‘
The examination and judgement was undertaken by RoNik Inspectioneering and the American Petroleum Institute (API).
They deemed it better than all other drones for the task of indoor inspections.
UK distributor COPTRZ says the Elios 2 from Flyability can complete tasks other drones cannot, and offer benefits like saving money, improving data capture and reducing risk.
COPTRZ cites the use of the drone in saving Severn Trent £750,000 and also helping Liverpool firefighters assess a fire at the city’s Echo Arena Car Park.
Steve Coulson, COPTRZ managing director, adds: “This is fantastic news for the Inspection industry as well as UAV pilots. The Elios 2 is safer, quicker and less complex to fly.
“This news will massively decrease the time taken for inspecting industrial assets and provides not only the most enhanced data available on the market but is also the safest way for inspection to operate.”
