Heliguy, in partnership with Drone AG, are offering a two-day training course on how to utilise your DJI drone as a tool for farming.
The course is made up of classroom-based presentations and resources, as well as hands-on practical sessions on a working farm. You will learn how to collect aerial data that can be translated into real-world results on your farm.
The course has been created by farmers and drone operators with over ten years’ experience in the sector.
The Drones for Agriculture Training is a BASIS registered course. Earn 12 CPD points.
As of September, the course will also carry a Lantra Certificate of attendance.
The course is delivered across two days covering the following subjects:
Mapping Basics - This section will help guide you through the process of mapping with your drone. We will cover all stages from preparing your drone, through to planning and completing the flight.
Crop Scouting and GAI - In this module, we will detail the process of exporting and analysing the data captured with your drone.
Measurement Tools - This module will cover how to obtain detailed measurements for CS/RPA and insurance detailing flight planning, analysis and data exporting and sharing.
Planning and Inspection - In this module, we will cover how we will provide details on how in-map measurements, photography and 3D modelling can allow you to check buildings for damage, plan developments and share data with relevant parties.
This drones in agriculture course is delivered at two locations:
Training is based in East Lilburn Farms in northern Northumberland. The site is located on a 6000 acre, working family farm with facilities on site.
Delivered at our partner farm, from September 2018, we will be offering a training course in Norfolk.
