Cyberhawk Innovations, leader in aerial inspection and survey using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), is offering to drone enthusiasts a rare opportunity to become part of one of the world’s fastest growing industries.

Headquartered in Livingston, and with bases in Houston, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, Cyberhawk carried out the very first UAV inspection in 2009. The company works across the oil and gas, renewables, utilities and infrastructure sectors and has completed over 25 world firsts.

This Saturday (25 February), Cyberhawk will be on the hunt for UAV pilots and inspection engineers to join its team as it hosts an open day at the Edinburgh International Climbing Centre in Ratho, Edinburgh.

As a minimum, budding pilots will need to possess strong communication and problem solving skills, professionalism, willingness to travel and an awareness of the current Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations. Interviewees for this position will also undertake a flight skills assessment using small trainer UAV.

The inspection engineering roles will involve the inspection of UAV data, image processing and defect analysis, and would be suited to those who have recently graduated, or are studying towards a mechanical, civil or structural engineering degree. All recruits will receive full training.

Chris Fleming, CEO at Cyberhawk said: “This is a great chance to become part of one of Scotland’s global success stories, at a company which really is at the top of its game.

“As well as those with aviation experience and knowledge under their belt, this is also an exciting opportunity for drone hobbyists, or those with an interest and enthusiasm in the technology, to embark upon a career in this fast-paced, fast-growth industry.

“We’re excited to uncover the new talent who will help Cyberhawk continue to grow and maintain its world leading position. We encourage anyone interested to come along on Saturday so they don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity.”
