If you’ve been following the drone industry for a while, you know that things change quickly: aircraft and sensors are advancing, new analysis software comes on the market every week, and creative innovators are always finding new ways to put drones to work. For a writer, this is like being a kid in a candy store—there’s always something new to write about. It also means that we have to constantly review our content, webinars, and presentations to make sure they stay fresh and speak to people’s real-world questions. This is especially true in construction and engineering, the industries with the widest adoption and most sophisticated use cases. 

Fortunately, we have quite a few whip-smart customers and partners who are happy to share their expertise with us. This month we have three new downloadables, a webinar, and even an in-person event—all tailored for construction and engineering pros.

Drones in Construction—Best Practices from Skyward and Skycatch

We went over our most popular guide ever, Drones in Construction, with our friends at Skycatch to create a new and updated edition for 2017.

Whether your company is just beginning to use drones, or you’re already scaling up, our Drones in Construction guide provides more than 35 pages of resources and best practices for construction pros at every stage, including:

  • How regulations fit into your business
  • Understanding the airspace
  • Selecting a drone
  • Creating an efficient, low-risk workflow

This guide is also great for sharing with colleagues. You can download it here.

Case Studies: See How Stantec and Hensel Phelps Are Using Drones

Stantec and Hensel Phelps are large, well-respected companies with decades of experience in architecture, design, and construction. They both have highly sophisticated, safety-focused drone operations—but their use cases and org structures are pretty different. Click to the case studies to compare and contrast and gain takeaways to adapt for your own company. 

Webinar: Rogue Drones—Ensuring Safe Drone Use on Every Job Site

On May 23, ENR is hosting a webinar featuring Hunter Cole from Brassfield & Gorrie, Richard Lopez from Hensel Phelps, and Skyward’s chief pilot, Tariq Rashid. You’ll learn how to keep your business free of “rogue drones” and scale your drone ops across a construction enterprise.

Meet Skyward & Skycatch in person!

This year, we’re traveling around the U.S. to conduct flight demonstrations, share best practices, enjoy delicious snacks, and talk drones with friends from around the country. Our next stop is at the Verizon Innovation Center in San Francisco on May 31, where we’ll be joined by Richard Lopez of Hensel Phelps, Patrick Stuart of Skycatch, and Skyward’s chief pilot, Tariq Rashid. The Innovation Center is a really interesting, high-tech space, and we’d love to see you there!
