Aircraft inspection drone

With an aircraft inspection drone you drastically shorten the inspection time. This can reduce the UGT (unscheduled Ground Time) by two to ten times. The drone does the entire inspection, including administrative processing, in less than 30 minutes. 

Our mission is to make using an aircraft inspection drone as easy and self-explanatory as using an aerial platform.

How an aircraft inspection drone works

The drone flies in the hangar around the aircraft. This inspection can be processed in real time or afterwards.


By viewing the images in real time, the ground engineers can 

take immediate action. Then the drone sees the correct damage or other errors.   

Damage processing report

The drone does the entire inspection and generates a report afterwards. This report can be viewed on an iPad or laptop. You also have the possibility to sign the report by, for example, the GWK's or other authorized personnel. 

We see the drone as a supporting tool that ensures that your aircraft can get into the air faster. 

Does the engineer see a number of points that they do not agree with on the scan? Then they have the option to zoom in on the damage or they can go directly to the location. This is possible with a live 3D model, among other things. This is placed over the plane with, for example, an iPad.

With the approval of the engineers, the correct coordinates based on the requirements from the aviation industry thus become the Stringer and the frame. This information is processed in a report or forwarded directly to your administrative process software, including the AMOS.

Location determination of the various damage

The current method works for locating the damage. This is based on the Stringer and the frame number, so that damage can always be found with or without smart software. 

The time reduction of our solution is therefore not only in the drone, but also in the administrative part afterwards. In fact, the entire inspection can be visually retrieved at any time.

Types of inspections

Our drones can be used for various types of inspections.

  • Lightningstrike
  • Dents
  • Tags
  • FOD (foreign object damage)
  • Hail
  • Birdstrikes
  • Ice
  • crushed stone

Your employees, our priority

We think it is very important that the drone can be deployed whenever you want. That is why we ensure that your employees are trained to use the drone, software and automatic report processing. 

Artificial Intelligence

The drone works on the basis of artificial intelligence and machine learning. As a result, the drone is getting smarter every day. This provides ideal support for the GWKs. 

The drone not only learns to recognize damage, but can also see the patterns of lightning strikes. As a result, the drone will carry out inspection even faster in the future.


know faster.
