“We are incredibly proud to co-present with the global Terra Drone Corporation – a long-standing Heliguy client – and we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and collaborating with other key players in the industry.

“AirWorks 2019 also presents a fantastic opportunity for us to meet our esteemed partners, including DJI, 3DR, SlantRange and Pix4D, among many others.”

Mr Hardman’s AirWorks presentation follows a hugely successful speech he gave to industry experts from across the continent at a major DJI conference in Germany in June.

Held in Frankfurt, we were the only UK company to give a presentation and the talk set out our strategy for helping businesses launch and scale their commercial drone programmes with DJI technology. Mr Hardman also focused on the support we provide to a cross-section of top-level enterprise clients, from the UK’s leading emergency services to major firms such as Balfour Beatty.

The event was a unique opportunity for us to showcase our work in nurturing the European enterprise drone market and we were honoured with a Top 10 Partner of the Year (Europe) award from DJI Enterprise.

The accolade was a testament to our industry-leading approach to servicing the enterprise drone market utilising a range of DJI equipment, from top-of-the-range drones, to high-class sensors and ancillaries.

It also recognised our unique model, which not only includes supply, but also aftercare, training and research and development opportunities.

This includes our recently-launched Full Stack package – an industry-first fully-managed drone supply and support solution for enterprise clients, to arm them with the latest equipment, reduce risk and cut out third-party finance involvement.
