FlightSafety International and Dronamics, developers of unmanned aerial systems for shipping commercial and special cargo applications, have signed an agreement at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition in Geneva.
With this agreement, FlightSafety will develop and deliver training for Dronamics pilots. Future training development opportunities also exists for Dronamics maintenance and dispatch personnel.
Dronamics is an unmanned cargo airline started by two brothers, Svilen and Konstantin Rangelov, in 2014. DHL and Hellmann have previously announced partnerships with Dronamics on same-day cargo delivery middle mile service throughout Europe and Australia. Dronamics’ near future plans involve growing their operation to become the first long-range cargo drone airline.
“For us at Dronamics, safety is the foundation of successful operations. This is why we are partnering with FlightSafety International to offer ongoing support in state-of-the-art training for our pilots and engineers,” said Sergio Oliveira e Silva, COO, Dronamics. “As we accelerate toward our first commercial flights later this year, FlightSafety will ensure our remote pilots are always trained to maintain the highest standards in operational excellence and safety. Our joint future plans include the co-development of an academy that will ensure we are well placed to meet the resourcing requirements of running the first UAV long-range cargo airline.”
