Implementing drones into you daily utility operations is challenging. Some utilities jump right in and buy a drone at a local store and then try to navigate how to get training, integrate the drone in their utility operations, insurance, and certifications. As FAA oversight of drones continues to increase, along with the technology advancing slightly ahead of Moore’s law, how to integrate drone technology into a utility’s daily operations is growing more complex. This session will give an overview of how to select an airframe that aligns with your utility’s needs, how to receive training, FAA certifications, insurance, and setting drone operations. We will also cover safety and give some insight of how drones may be used going forward by utilities. We will have sample pictures and videos form the field that will be presented by industry experts and coops.
