Alma, Québec, July 14th, 2015 – Hovercam UAV (Dolbeau-Saint-Félicien, Québec) is proud to announce that the Unmanned Aerial System Centre of Excellence facilities will become the focal point for their UAV operations. This project falls within the framework to create an aeronautical park at the Alma Airport.
This young company, established in 2013, offers mapping and multimedia services. Hovercam UAV already has a significant number of pilots travelling throughout Quebec and is positioning itself to eventually offer their services outside of the province. The company also offers customised services in the fields of agriculture & forestry, public safety, surveillance and environmental management.
Hovercam UAV wishes to centralize their operations at the UAS CE facilities where they also plan to establish and develop a manufacturing and maintenance service for professional UAVs and equipment. This new workshop is expected to create additional aircraft technician positions in this emerging and highly dynamic sector.
Mr. Guy Savard of Hovercam UAV is highly optimistic about this relocation: “The development of Hovercam UAV is based on a vision of partnership. We intend to conquer the market by focusing on strategic alliances, and the Unmanned Aerial System Centre of Excellence is a haven for complimentary members with parallel projects. We are convinced that our collaboration and our relocation will promote our development as well as encourage many great achievements”.
Mr. Pascal Pilote, the President of the UAS CE is very pleased with this agreement and reaffirms his intentions: “The UAS CE will continue, as our mission states, to represent Hovercam UAV towards government authorities as well as civil society; and in that sense, supports the achievements of the highest standard in the UAV field. The service and maintenance sector is practically untapped at the moment; Hovercam UAV’s commitment to this sector will surely attract attention. Furthermore, the UAS CE will continue to place their national and international network at their disposal”.
