Flying a drone indoor is different to traditional methods. To help you maximize your return on investment, we have defined a complete set of certifications and thorough trainings meant to ensure that your Elios is always operated in the safest conditions and in the most efficient way.
The Self Training consists of acquiring the basic knowledge necessary to fly an Elios. This training can be done online. Upon completion, you will receive a certification, which is mandatory before the first flight to benefit from the warranty.
Each drone sold by Flyability or its partners comes with a complimentary training called Introductory Training. This one-day, in-person training allows future operators to be able to perform standard inspections right from the first flight.
The AIIM (Aerial Indoor Inspection Methodology) is designed for operators willing to take the fast track to use Elios at its fullest. After this training, operators will be able to plan and execute inspections with advanced practices in regards to flying in complex indoor environments. Even experienced outdoor pilots will take advantage of this session, learning industry-specific use cases and best practices in regards to indoor flight.
Our certifications are based on criteria defined by professional pilots with extensive mission track records and in-depth knowledge of the Elios. Each certification level is directly built from practical experience applicable to real case scenario.
By providing your team with the certifications issued by Flyability and its partners, you maximize your investment and can rely on having pilots able to perform a successful mission.
Operators will find in our certifications a valuable professional recognition, acknowledging their proficiency at using Elios.
Each participant attending the introductory training will receive a certificate attesting that they have successfully completed the course.
This 2-day training course aims to give you a better understanding of the drone and its limitations. It also teaches you how to prepare for an inspection by identifying and mitigating any risks in your flight zone.
The Training consists of:
The Flyability training team uses experience gathered over hundreds of inspections to build the core of this training.
This training is for advanced pilots and operators who attended the Introductory Training. All of our partners who provide the AIIM Training can also provide the Introductory Training; trainees can take both courses back to back.
Flying a drone in a confined, dusty, pitch dark, and unexplored environment can be very intimidating. We have created the Aerial Indoor Inspection Methodology training to help you prepare for these critical first missions.
By coming to an official Flyability training center you will get the most out of the training. There is no time lost in setup, and the proper training material is readily available. It is the only way to get Advanced certification through introductory training, and you can combine it with a specialized training course.
We are happy to send one of our trainers to your premises to train three of your employees. We ask you to cover the transportation and accommodation costs of the trainer. This approach is an excellent way to get detailed advice on how to perform an inspection on your assets. However, the training will be less generic.
We regularly organize training events around the world to increase the availability of training in different areas or simply to let prospects get an in-depth experience of Elios before making a purchase. We try to combine these training events with large drone trade shows to increase the chance to meet ou there.
