The Changes in the Market

 

Because Flyby Technology is one of the best known training schools in the UK we get a unique look at booking trends in the drone industry.  Ever more corporations are waking up to the benefits of having their own integrated UAV capability.  Other organisations seek our help to de-risk their projects, or to help gain an insightful perspective on an industry that is inflating like the early universe.

The graphic above is just 30% of the corporations who have sent pilots to our courses, or have sought our expert advice to progress their capabilities or safety in the industry, in the last 6 weeks.  Whilst we continue to see lots of sole traders entering the market we are seeing a strong increase in bookings from corporations seeking training for multiple pilots.

Future pilots who have been properly trained will be highly prized and our training is now being adapted for foreign authorities in North America and the Far East.  If you are looking to start out on your journey as a UAV pilot, you should take comfort from the fact that your skills will be of great value to others.  Should you wish to build a future career, and not just a business, there has never been a better time to begin training.
