Sinclair Community College, located in Dayton, Ohio has partnered with the Swiss company senseFly. senseFly is a drone mapping company which provides fixed-wing survey drones for industrial purposes. Also, this has made Sinclair its primary North American partner.
The benefit of the partnership:
Sinclair’s National UAS Training and Certification Center will provide senseFly’s clients with standardized drone training. Therefore, this will not only broaden senseFly’s client base but also expand its training offerings through Sinclair’s internationally recognized UAS center. As per drone laws in the United States and several other parts of the world, a drone pilot must have proper training and certification. Additionally, Sinclair’s partnership and primary training center is boon for budding industrial drone pilots.
“As a leading industry provider of UAS solutions, senseFly’s multiple product options meet business challenges across a broad range of industry applications,” said Jeffrey Miller, chief operating officer for Sinclair’s UAS Center. “We are excited to collaborate with senseFly to leverage our vast experience in providing drone training, ensuring their clients continue to be well prepared to effectively maximize their investments in senseFly products.”
“Sinclair’s National UAS Training and Certification Center is an excellent partner for senseFly due to their innovative approach to creating comprehensive training programs coupled with their experience using drone technology to support their collaborations in applied research and development, commercialization and consulting work,” Jean-Thomas Célette, managing director of senseFly, added.
