May 24, 2022  By FlightSafety International

FlightSafety International and Dronamics, developers of unmanned aerial systems for shipping commercial and special cargo applications, will sign an agreement at the upcoming European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE), May 23-25 in Geneva.

With this agreement, FlightSafety will develop and deliver a state-of-the art training for Dronamics pilots. Future training development opportunities also exists for Dronamics maintenance and dispatch personnel.

“We’re well known in the market for our long-standing OEM relationships,” said Nate Speiser, FlightSafety’s EVP of Sales & Marketing. “Being on the ground floor of the unmanned flight industry with Dronamics is proof of our focus on the future as well. Our mission is to ensure the most prepared pilots in the industry – no matter the type of aircraft.”

Dronamics is an unmanned cargo airline started by two brothers, Svilen and Konstantin Rangelov, in 2014. DHL and Hellmann have previously announced partnerships with Dronamics on same-day cargo delivery middle mile service throughout Europe and Australia. Dronamics’ near future plans involve growing their operation to become the first long-range cargo drone airline.


“For us at Dronamics, safety is the foundation of successful operations. This is why we are partnering with FlightSafety International to offer ongoing support in state-of-the-art training for our pilots and engineers,” said Sergio Oliveira e Silva, COO, Dronamics. “As we accelerate toward our first commercial flights later this year, FlightSafety will ensure our remote pilots are always trained to maintain the highest standards in operational excellence and safety. Our joint future plans include the co-development of an academy that will ensure we are well placed to meet the resourcing requirements of running the first UAV long-range cargo airline.”
