Around the world, many diverse industries are recognizing the benefits of RPAS (also referred to as UAVs, Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or drones) to perform commercial inspection and monitoring operations.
For these operations, RPAS offers lower risk to personnel and increases cost efficiency over mobilizing aircraft. However, utilizing this new technology can provide significant risks to stakeholder investments, property and productivity. RPAS mishap rates are up to 300 times greater than general aviation. Costs for damage to equipment can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars, not withstanding provision for indirect costs relating to injury, death or derivative liability.
As a result, professional aviation safety standards, training and risk management strategies are imperative for continual safety performance and assurance. That is where SGS can help.
