Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Services
Through its affiliate Sky-Futures, Bristow offers global UAV inspection. UAV service solutions help clients to achieve cost savings and further efficiencies in their operations. Inspections completed by professionally trained UAV remote pilots are safer, faster and more cost efficient than other inspection techniques.
Sky-Futures team of highly experienced remote pilots, approved by the FAA and the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), conduct safe, cost effective and experienced UAV inspections of live flare stacks, splash zones, decommissioning, general topside work and under deck, using HD video, still and thermal imagery. The data is analyzed, processed and delivered through Sky-Futures advanced technology platform.
Sky-Futures recently completed a drone inspection of two offshore flare tips for a major oil client which was estimated to have saved the client approximately $35 million by avoiding an unscheduled shutdown.
