CURSIR presented the IFIS 2022 additional papers on NAVAID flight inspection drones

Cursir shares experience in implementing flight inspection drones with the international aviation community at the International Flight Inspection Symposium (IFIS 2022). IFIS promotes a better understanding of the technologies and environmental issues that impact global flight inspection operations.

Held in collaboration with the International Committee for Airspace, Standards and Calibration (ICASC) and taking place for the first time on the African continent, the biennial International Flight Inspection Symposium (IFIS) attracts international delegates with aerospace expertise from the continent, Europe, the United States, and the Far East. IFIS explores the future of the aviation industry, the advancement of technological instruments, and the issues that impact global flight inspection operations.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) was proud to host the historic event that was held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Center in Durban on 20-24 June.
The most poignant debates were timelines and sufficiency of drones in the calibration of navigational aids. The heated debate culminated in manufacturers and regulatory structures agreeing with the notion that drones are not yet able to deliver the full scope of the requirements in terms of flight inspections even though they come very close to achieving this. This discussion is evidently going to be topical in the next few years still.

CURSIR, as a drone manufacturer and service provider, presented a document on its experience in implementing drones into flight inspections. At the moment, there's no such thing as a single global standard for the implementation of Flight Inspection Drones. In order to implement the technology, each state has to independently organize the verification and implementation process. The goal of the published document is to describe how such a process was organized and executed in CURSIR's experience. The document consists of the description of participants, the composition of the workgroup and essential steps that were performed. This information can be used as a basis for organizing a similar process in any country.
