Annual pilot day tests professional drone flying skills

November 11th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Rocketmine’s annual Pilot Day, held in October 2019 at Barnstormers Model Flying Club in Kempton Park, was filled with team spirit, drone flying and fun. The purpose of the day was to test the theoretical and practical skill of the company’s dedicated pilots through a series of team and individual challenges. This year’s theme, “Teamwork makes the dream work”, not only tested the individual skills and expertise of each pilot, but also challenged participants to work in a team environment and contribute to a collective outcome. The three areas that teams competed in included an individual challenge comprising South African Air Law and Rocketmine Operational theory, as well as two team challenges on fixed-wing practical and multi-rotor practical respectively. Before the event, pilots were divided into five teams for the the day and were awarded additional points for team spirit, originality and presentation. Many of the company’s clients, along with their families, joined them on the day. The company’s local suppliers, GOUAV and IQLaser, were also present and they showcased new products and technology within the industry.
