    How the Drone Industry is set to Take Off 

    The drone industry is global. There is no denying that. It is said that the drone market will grow to $43 million dollars by 2024. Who wouldn’t want to be involved in an industry that is innovating, revolutionising and changing the way people live their daily life?

    The world changed forever in 2020 due to the impact of Covid-19. However, amid the Covid-19 crisis and the looming economic recession, the drone market continues to develop at an impressive pace and remains unmarred by the challenges of the pandemic.

    While Covid-19 has dented consumer shipments and hindered commercial rollout, this has been mitigated by the increased use of drones for public safety responses and surveillance by both local and national police forces. Looking forward, new regulatory changes and the slow rollout of remote ID and 5G will enable an enormous upscaling of drone operations, from single remotely operated aircraft to semi-autonomous fleets that will be able to operate beyond visual line of sight. This will provide the base from which companies like Amazon can launch drone delivery services.

    One of the key factors driving the demand for the drone industry, is the fact that UAVs have the ability to perform hazardous tasks, such as inspections, with higher precision and cost-effectiveness as compared to the traditional methods.

    Over the last two months, we have helped hundreds of organisations adopt drone technology and welcomed over 1,300 students to Coptrz Academy.

    Drone technology is revolutionising business operations at a pace never seen before, now is the time to grasp the opportunity or get left behind. That is where Coptrz come in.

    PC Tom Shainberg, from Devon and Cornwall police, said: “Drones are having a real impact on policing in the UK, it’s given us much better situational awareness to incidents and it’s making things a lot safer for our officers.”

    Jonathan Wales, Head of Videography and Aerial solutions at COSTAIN, commented: “Since 2018, Coptrz have become our sole training provider. Along with pilot NQE qualifications, vocational lessons have also been given on how to use drones to complete survey-grade photogrammetry.
