The drone industry is evolving rapidly, especially when it comes to drone services and professional drone piloting. The global drone industry is currently a US$ 15 billion economy and has the potential to more than double in the next five years.1 Currently, our industry is packed with small operators offering little to no differentiation. This is an issue as most emerging technologies have discovered that a lack of differentiation is unsustainable, we will see prices falling, margins compressing, and a consolidation especially as drones are adopted into the global airways.
For the drone industry to grow, pilots need to be able to step relatively quickly into a wide range of highly technical industries, deliver high-quality results, and be prepared to support, manage, and grow that industry’s drone program. Likewise, businesses need to be able to know that they are hiring that calibre of professionals. Volatus provides the skills, knowledge, operational regulations, and compliance training that organizations need to confidently build drone programs.
One of the most important steps for pilots and organizations is to future-proof your knowledge and skills. Be prepared, through training, for the challenges ahead, to predict and navigate roadblocks to your success in the fast-developing drone industry.
