Very informative interview with Lucas Van Oostrum, CTO & Co-Founder of the Aerialtronics Drone Company. Aerialtronics produce the Altura Zenith drones which are high tech, have long flight times and can carry heavy payloads. If you’re looking at starting a drone business or trying to understand why the drone market is growing, this interview is very insightful.
When companies approach Aerialtronics, they don’t look for a drone. They look for a solution to a problem. Aerialtronics provide a full solution from consultancy, training, selection of drone, the payload and software.
Drones Save Lives And Time
From this interview, you realize that there are so many uses for drones. Lucas discusses a recent report, showing there were over 100 deaths in recent years from surveying cellphone masts. Using drones for site surveys prevents injury and loss of life. You also save time. To survey a high rise building or cellphone masts in a stadium can take 2 to 3 weeks by erecting scaffolding. A drone takes 3 hours.
Drones For Training Falcons And Flying Diamonds
Even Lucas has been surprised by some of the queries he has received. How about drones delivering diamonds in Antwerp or a requirement for a drone to look like a pigeon to train falcons.
