Asia’s Fast Growing Commercial Drone Marketplace Will Benefit from Drone Vidya’s digital offering of USI’s Industry Recognized Best Practices for Pilot Training and Certifications.
Skyller Solutions, a Division of AI and Robotics Ventures is based in Bangkok, Thailand and is Asia’s specialized Drone Service Provider for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Robotics in Oil & Gas, Road Inspection, and Critical Facilities Inspection and develops AI-powered UAV Management Platforms. Skyller has a division known as Drone Vidya that allows students to initiate their drone career opportunities through a journey that focuses on developing remote pilot safety excellence and prepares them for sustainable employment from AI-based service matching. The Asian marketplace poses inconsistencies and voids related to commercial drone regulations and recognized best practices. Partnering with USI provides Drone Vidya with content, curriculum and certifications that are recognized both academically and commercially, resulting in true workforce development opportunities for aspiring drone pilots in the region.
Shane Archiquette, Co-founder of Drone Vidya commented, “Asia represents the largest and fastest growing commercial drone market in the world, yet the lack of commercial regulations and standards inhibits the development of a properly trained workforce. Partnering with USI will allow us to offer true industry recognized RPAS training and certification via Drone Vidya’s digital app platform – Mandala.”
“USI is very proud to have been selected by Drone Vidya as their partner in RPAS training and certification,” added Josh Olds, USI’s CEO and Founder. “Aviation safety best practices are indeed global in their development and application. USI’s RPAS training and certification program was carefully designed to incorporate the wide-array of UAS operations from today’s Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) operations, into tomorrow’s Beyond Visual Line of Sight capabilities and ultimately into the highly anticipated Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) operations of Electric-Vertical Takeoff and Landing (E-VTOL) aircraft.”
USI Certifications are stackable credentials that emphasize the applicable knowledge and skills that are consistent with commercial drone operations at various levels of operational size, complexity, and risk exposure. The Drone Vidya offering is digitally based and will be offered in the language and currency consistent with the local marketplace. Unique to these certifications is that they require third party validation of both knowledge and flight examinations which speaks to their credibility with industry who requires drone pilots to be prepared to produce work in a safe, effective, and efficient manner which justifies the return on investment of the company’s drone program.
