Taking a break from missions and demonstrations across South Korea, and in conjunction with client management and local city officials, QuestUAV’s partner in the SK flew their Surveyor Pro UAV across Madang City in Papua New Guinea. The visit was originally scheduled to facilitate the capture of detailed maps of a 0.2ha area for update planning of the client’s drainage system developments. Once local city officials and client management saw how quickly a successful survey could be completed (on day one), they requested plans be drafted, approved and executed for a second day’s mission to survey a much larger area – the entire city. The resulting image set – some 1600+ images was collected in a single flight. Due to the low-lying location and the safety requirements of this excursion, Madang Air Traffic Control categorised the UAV flights as standard aircraft and tracked accordingly.
