Heliguy has staged its first Drones for Enterprise event, held at Lumley Castle in County Durham.
It aimed to provide pilots with a wealth of knowledge about the industry and a clear idea of how to turn their hobby into a commercial venture.
In a blog post, Heliguy described how the event attracted people with a mix of experience, from those who had never flown a drone through to PfCO holders.
Kris Fagan, a course attendee from Aspect Aerial Imagery, commented: “I thought the event was very good. There was a lot of information and the course was filled properly with relevant and necessary content, which included giving us a good understanding of the laws. As an added bonus, Lumley Castle was a very beautiful setting.”
Edward Jackson, Heliguy’s Head of Training, was pleased with the debut event.
He added: “Our first Drones for Enterprise event went well. Attendees had a cross-section of experience and all of them took something from the day – whether that was learning more about the rules and regulations of operating a drone, through to more advanced subjects, such as drone mapping and photogrammetry.”
