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.* 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 organizations need to confidently build drone programs.
The most important step for pilots and organizations is to future-proof your knowledge and skills. Be prepared, through training, for the challenges ahead, predict and navigate the roadblocks to your success in the fast-developing drone industry.
Volatus personnel come from a diverse background that includes airline passenger pilots, aviation lawyers and international business development executives, aviation mechanical engineers, helicopter pilots, teachers, veteran service members, and experts in remote and autonomous operations training and support. Together we have created training programs, off-the-shelf courses that are listed here, and customized solutions for industry, government, public safety, and other organizations.
