New technology often spawns questions and worries about how it will impact jobs. The good news about drones: They’ll transform jobs rather than replace them.
Commercial use of drones is exploding. In fact, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration registered twice as many unmanned aircraft in the last 18 months as it registered all aircraft from the previous 100 years, according to Earl Lawrence, director of the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Office, in a July 2017 Fox News report.
Drones’ effects on the U.S. economy will be huge. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) projected that 100,000 jobs will be created — with an economic impact of $82 billion — through 2025, once Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are integrated into in the National Airspace System (NAS).
They’re enriching work rather than replacing people. A drone isn’t simply a flying robot. It’s a tool humans are increasingly using to extend their reach and expand their capabilities. It complements each operator’s role and objectives. You don’t use a drone to think — you use it to act.
For example, the FlightWave Edge™ UAS is a long-range, high-endurance hybrid VTOL aircraft, designed and manufactured in the U.S. It’s a serious tool for challenging missions that require long range, long endurance, and water-resistant all-environment reliability. It’s not a toy — but it’s also not a replacement for a human operator.
Rather, a commercial drone like the Edge is ideal for sophisticated missions such as mapping, remote patrol and surveillance, ecosystem monitoring, and much more — even in challenging weather conditions or over difficult terrain. It’s made for people striving to make a difference.
FlightWave offers you a way to see first hand how drones can help your people do their jobs better. Whether you are a government agency, private company, or nonprofit organization, and you need a cost-effective tool to help you protect borders, assets or the environment, fast action can get you a big discount on an Edge.
