Iprosurv, one of the UK’s leading commercial drone providers, has today launched Pilot Partnerships, an ambitious new proposition to bring together the nation’s independent operators and drive greater levels of professionalism across the
Billed as a co-operative for commercial drone pilots, Pilot Partnerships aims to bring
together the huge number of independent operators to provide mutual support, share best practice and work together to drive greater levels of professionalism and public trust in the sector.
Using Iprosurv’s proprietary software platform, members of Pilot Partnerships will have
access to case management and flight planning software, data security, safety and
environmental compliance support, tailored training, bespoke websites and a host of
marketing and client prospecting support.
Commenting on the new initiative, Rebecca Jones, CEO and co-founder of Iprosurv, said:
“The commercial drone industry is growing fast as more and more businesses look to new technology to solve old problems.
“But the commercial drone market is fragmented and made up of sole traders and micro-
SMEs and the introduction of new regulations has made life tough for many. If we are to
become the mature, professional industry that more and more sectors expect us to be, we have to come together, work together and grow together to create that.”
Iprosurv has a well-established network of drone pilots and has made a significant
investment in ensuring that Iprosurv and its partners have the latest, safest technology
available to help establish drones as a permanent feature of doing business.
“We have huge ambitions for our sector, but we know we can’t do it on our own and we
don’t think the hundreds of independent, professional operators we want to work with
across the country can do it on their own either,” said Jones.
“Which is why we have set up Pilot Partnerships. We hope that, in time and with the right
partners, Pilot Partnerships will become the gold standard in the industry and a guarantee of quality and professionalism to clients of all shapes and sizes.”
Pilot Partnerships is the first mutually supportive, network proposition in the commercial
drone sector in the UK. The target profile for potential members is sole operators and
organisations that have a specific sector or technical expertise.
“As Iprosurv, we have made great inroads into our chosen sectors but as our profile has
grown, the huge potential in other markets is becoming apparent and we want to bring all our compliance, operational and customer service expertise to as many sectors as possible,” said Jones.
“We are looking to partner with drone operators who have technical and operational
experience but require the support of a larger organisation to exploit the opportunities they see or sector experts who can help introduce us, and our partners, to new markets.
“Together, we can make a mark on the economy and ensure that drones have an integral
role to play.”
Entry into the Pilot Partnerships community requires a small one-off fee and small
percentage share of fees.
