Helicopter operator’s safety alert. We have just become aware of a safety program that has become available, once again, in Australia. We have decided to help the event organisers by advising our readers of the venues for the highly respected one day course, CRM & Flying in the Wire Environment, by US based Bob Freest.
Bob established Utilities Aviation Specialities (USA) in 1985. With over 40 years of experience in the aviation industry, he also understands the utility industry having been a journeyman lineman and manager for a utility flight department. He is a commercial pilot, rated in both fixed wing and rotary. He has a Bachelor’s Degree from Purdue University and holds a Masters’ Degrees in Aviation Business Management and in Aviation/Aerospace Operations from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Bob has developed the company into a dedicated team of professionals that has made Utilities Aviation Specialists the industry leader in aviation safety and consulting that it is today.
UAS Australian agent, Lyn Sims, recently contacted us and stated:

Drone operators – 2020 to 2030 and beyond. We have also attached the Preliminary Program for the Future of Transportation World Conference, held 5-6 July 2017 at Cologne, Germany. This with conference has eight information streams and over 160 speakers. Live technology will be demonstrated plus major companies have offered representatives to speak with the public about this new technology.
For those who are having trouble keeping up with the world of robotics associated with transport, (such as myself), you will find fascinating information about the wide range of developments underway in all of transport. The number of large global companies investing huge amount of R & D dollars is staggering.
We will endeavour to keep you informed of the outcomes of this amazing conference. You will note some major corporate exhibitors are investing enormous resources developing the robotic technology upon which drone developments are based.
No doubt if you are young and into the latest technology, you may possibly see a business opportunity emerging in the not too distant future.
