KOREC announced that its Drone Pilot Academy, the company’s training partners in the provision of flight training and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) accredited pilot training courses, have successfully launched their Operational Safety Case consultancy service to assist KOREC senseFly eBee users attain EVLOS (Extended Visual Line of Sight) approval. A UK eBee user has already successfully attained this approval through the new Drone Pilot Academy service. It will now be possible for the users of eBee X, eBee Plus and eBee Classic models in the UK and Northern Ireland to get approval to fly up to 1500m away from the remote pilot (compared to usual 500m) giving a potential operating range of 3km. This will bring a significant competitive advantage to KOREC customers, particularly those surveying quarries, coastal areas and large-scale projects by cutting extensively the need for multiple take-off and landing points.
