Debbie obtained her CASA Remote Pilot License in 2016 and has enjoyed continuously expanding her skill base in terms of safe and reliable flying of UAVs or drones ever since. However, she has now taken this to the next level by successfully achieving CASA accreditation as Chief Remote Pilot for Wildlife Drones’ Operators Certificate.
Her path to accreditation has involved significantly expanding her knowledge of both the regulatory and operational requirements of flying drones safely within the commercial sector.
She has particularly loved incorporating her passion for maps and navigation when scoping and planning drone flights for customers. This includes pouring over maps and aeronautical charts to explore airspace restrictions and flight hazards so they can be identified and managed effectively.
