Spatial Source: Sphere Drones becomes exclusive training & service centre for Flyability Elios
Josh Spires | 14 November, 2018 | In the Media
Sydney-based RPAS solution provider Sphere Drones now operates as the sole training and service centre for Flyability’s Elios collision tolerant inspection drone.
The Elios is Swiss firm Flyability’s purpose-designed drone for inspection of inaccessible, confined and dangerous environments.
Encased in a gimballed carbon fibre protective cage, it is aimed squarely at asset inspection of pressure vessels, power plant boilers and industrial spaces inhospitable or impractical for human inspection.
Its sensor payload includes a thermal camera, full HD optical camera and LED lighting with remotely adjustable intensity, relayed back to the operator via DJI’s LightBridge 2 video transmission technology.
Given the narrow but nuanced mission profile of this tool, Flyability requires that customers undergo company-sponsored training before deploying the aircraft.
Sydney-based Sphere Drones has today announced their status as the exclusive training and service centre for Flyability in Australia, providing three course options for new owners of the Elios.
- Self-training: A free option for new customers to get underway and activate their warranties
- Introductory Training: Designed as an initial step toward ‘proven Elios piloting proficiency’
- Specialised Training: Designed for those that want to achieve the highest certification, or are seeking additional specialisation
Flyability specify 50-hour service intervals for the Elios, for the replacement of key components and warranty maintenance, which can also be carried out at Sphere’s service centre, along with claims on the 12-month warranty.
