  3. For aerially inspecting wind turbines and other structures, drone pilots come into action. During our mission in Texas, drone pilot Andrew Haskins from National Drone Pros learned how to operate the Sterblue App — in one day. Andrew is also part of the DroneBase network. Sterblue Engineer & Instructor Ignacio with drone Pilot Andrew inspecting wind turbines in Texas Drones with Sterblue software are already flying in four continents and twelve countries. As our company is growing, our pilot network needs to grow as well. Indeed, we need to rely on experienced drone pilots distributed all over the world in order to ensure fast and high-quality inspection processes. But how does the training for the Sterblue App look like? And who can fly a drone for Sterblue? Get some insights from our training with Andrew who now operates for Sterblue in the US. How does the training look like? Being trained to the Sterblue App on field can seamlessly be done in one day! The App allows to fly automatically around the three blades and four faces of a wind turbine. The production downtime is then optimized with a highly standardized data collection phase. Our training process is carried out in three steps: Pilot qualification interview (30 minutes) Online training (45 minutes) Onsite training (1 day) Before the actual training, we introduce ourselves in a 30 minute interview and check about our past experiences as well as future expectations. This is followed by an online training session, consisting of videos, exercises and tests. Here, the learner can gain insights into the Sterblue solution in an interactive way. The online training can be completed in 45 minutes. After passing the first two steps, we start the actual onsite training. For learning how to inspect wind turbines, Andrew joined our experienced Sterblue drone pilot on field in Texas. We believe that involving the pilot in a real mission provides the best learning experience. On the first day of operation, we met at the wind farm in Texas for a safety walk, before heading out to the first turbine. While training pilots to our App, we take as much time as needed in inspecting the first structures. This way, we can ensure that the pilot is fully comfortable and understands each point of the mission and the App. While inspecting the first turbine for about three hours, Andrew was in control of the drone the entire time with the supervision of our Sterblue instructor. Sterblue App: details of a wind turbine from the Sterblue mission in Texas During the following two days, he kept on inspecting wind turbines guided by a Sterblue instructor. This way, he increased his productivity with the Sterblue solution while ensuring good quality inspections. At the end of his training, Andrew inspected ten wind turbines in one day and a half. On his next project for Sterblue at the end of July, Andrew will inspect 29 wind turbines in less than one week. The perspectives of working with us are promising: the US wind market is big and there is a constant need for inspecting and maintaining wind turbines. How to become a Sterblue drone pilot? In order to create good conditions for the inspection process, you need to meet requirements in terms of Experience Location Equipment License At Sterblue, we look for professional drone operators being experienced from working in the industry. To follow on customer projects all over the world, our drone operators are distributed globally. This is to ensure that each drone inspector can act locally, for long and frequent travels to be avoided. For some upcoming projects, we are especially looking for drone operators in the US. Operating for Sterblue, you need to have specific equipment: Our Sterblue App and 3d automatic navigation software is compatible with the whole DJI product line. Preferably, we are using the DJI Matrice 200 series. Also, you need to be a licensed drone pilot in the country of your operation. If you are interested in working with us, please reach out for us here. We are also looking for pilots for our power grids market! Ignacio and Andrew after the wind turbine inspections
  4. Greetings. After many years as a photographer and an RC CP Helicopter Pilot, I've finally put the 2 together to start a new venture. I'm interested in piloting for just about anything at this time, but I intend to get into inspection and agricultural survey, or emergency response. I was a remote duty medic for the Commercial Deep Sea Diving industry, and have worked in Emergency Medical Services for most of my adult life in one capacity or another, usually as a volunteer. I'm in the process of forming a new company to provide my services.
  5. I'm a pre-newbie to UAVs. Although a certificated aviator (commercial land, sea, glider, CFI), I know next to nothing about flying UAVs beyond reading the literature and an infomercial class at a Seattle UAV rental shop. So I'm hoping to gain a lot in this forum and later share what I can. I'm a retired techbiz entrepreneur who at 77 is fortunate to still be active (run five miles/day, bike over 3,000 miles/year) but realize that my days in the left seat of a cockpit are numbered and look forward to extending the never-ending wonder of flight in a virtual cockpit. At the UAV shop class I did succumb to sales pitch and bought a DJI Spark (still in the box) and joined a new Seattle drone Meetup group, first meeting scheduled for May 17 at an RC field.
  6. Been getting the email for two years, figured it was time to sign up. I have done a few insurance jobs, (which I actually got paid for) and photography for friends, (which I didn’t). I’m up for my license renewal in two months so it’s time to start studying again. That’s all for now.
  7. Ok so as I embark on this new faze of my career I’m very exited to hear all your stories and advice. At 55 years of age this will be my 3rd career, the first one was in aviation and the 2nd was in email marketing design, development and execution. Now it’s my turn to do something I’ve always loved. If all goes well I’ll be a commercial drone pilot by the end of the year!!!
  8. Hi Everyone! Just saying hello from PDX. My name's Anna and I'm a cofounder of Atomic Dumpling LLC. We'll be running marine and aerial drones.
  9. I have a client looking for drone photography in the Hamptons on August 4th. It's a high profile event so they are looking for an expert pilot. The event is called Paddle for Pink, a breast cancer awareness event. They are in need of action shots of the event as well as yachts and confetti at the finish line. Contact Elizabeth Hurley Elizabeth.Hurley@ferrettigroup.com
  10. Not sure if this is the place to make a request, but I am looking for drone cinematography for a WEB TV series in development. Likely filming will begin in late august, 2018. Location is the Pacific Northwest (U.S.), so responders should live in the general area -- we just don't have the budget to fly folks in from any distances. This is a unique and fun project with some great aerial sequence challenges. The ability to fly full-size cameras is not necessary. Details to interested pilots. Thanks.
  11. Good Morning I'm from the twin island nation of Trinidad & Tobago. I'm 29 yrs old and i'm about to embark on the journey of opening my own business. I'm here in the hopes of getting some good advice about my drone pilot journey from the community at large. Looking into getting a Phantom 3 SE......any advice on the matter is appreciated. Love & Blessing TDP
  12. Hi. I am from India . A drone enthusiast. Let's see what this website offers.
  13. Hi All, I was speaking with Alan today and he suggested I post on the forum here. I work for Prelaunch Labs and we are looking to partner with Drone Pilot Instructors on a program that involves the Epson Moverio BT-300 AR Glasses. These glasses allow the pilot to keep line of sight on the drone, while showing the flight data. If you would like more details about the program please email or call our office.

  15. Hi Everyone. I'm a UAS part 107 pilot who recently moved and need to update my address in order to be compliant with FAA rules. I can't figure out where to go to do that. Do I need to update my address here as well? https://iacra.faa.gov/IACRA/Default.aspx Thanks in advance. Jason.
  16. Hello, I haven't purchased a drone yet. I am looking for information and advice on different drones. Barrie
  17. Hey guys!!! Just wanted to thank admins and members for making this forum so good so early. And I need a job after running my own bike shop for 11 years and getting divorced. Thank You!
  18. It has been done, RC Logger Nova X 350 delivered on Tuesday. After firmware updates and battery charging, my first RC controlled quad flight happened this morning. Mission accomplished, 9 minute air time, no crashes, soft landings practiced and much fun had. Similar to making love, it sometimes does not last long enough (humor intended). So how many S3 batteries are enough to own? Just like ice in the summer time, never enough. My local RC flight club LARK is having a Warbird Fly-In this weekend. Yesterday I saw a Eurofighter 109 Typhoon dual jet flown in grand style. Oh yea many P51's, a Sopwith Campbell, F16 Thunderbird replica and many more in town. I'm heading out to see more flying, then comeback and get a couple more quad flights under my belt when it gets cooler. I'm hooked now. Like they say no pics and it didn't happen!
  19. Hi. My name is Rich and I'm a retired pilot and flight test engineer who's interested in anything that fly's, including personal UAV's. I own one small quadrotor and fly it with my grandson.
  20. Hi, my name is Andre' Messina from New Orleans, La. I recently graduated from film school and am interested in flying my drone commercially as either an independent contractor or my own company. I am trying to figure out where to begin. Should I look at getting my sport pilot license? If so does anyone have a recommendations for schools? My other question would be I know it takes a long time to get the exemption, should I apply before obtaining a pilot license or wait until after I have the license? Thanks for any feedback. I really appreciate the help. Andre'
  21. Hello, I'm looking for a school that would teach me how to build and fly drones professionally. Also would like to meet people who is already involved in the drone industry. I'm looking forward to meet my future colleague entrepreneurs.
