Mainblades achieved a major milestone. For the first time in Europe, a fully automated outdoor airport drone inspection was performed.
For the better part of the last decade the aviation industry has been attempting to adopt drones for aircraft inspections. Some of the most important players in the sector – Easyjet, KLM, Air France, Avianca, Airbus, Delta, AA – have been working on solutions and pioneering the technology. However, all these leading players – even as of today – are not using it. Perhaps, aviation’s quick jump towards the innovation, was too premature, leading to expectations, leading to disappointment. The COVID-19 crisis however has recalibrated everybody in the aviation industry, forcing airlines, MRO’s, OEM’s to really look towards innovation for real-world, direct-to-be-implemented, cost-saving solutions. Mainblades is confident to provide you exactly that.
