Zurich/Cochrane – Voliro, a company specializing in the construction of flying robots, has opened the first Voliro Flight Center in North America. It is operated by the Canadian company Osprey Integrity Ltd in the town of Cochrane in the province of Alberta.

The Zurich-based company Voliro AG announces the opening of its first flight center in North America. According to a press release on LinkedIn, the Flight Center is located in Cochrane in the Canadian province of Alberta and is operated by the company Osprey Integrity Ltd. The Canadian company, led by CEO Courtland Penk, can now conduct on-site proof-of-concept demos - or proofs of concept - to demonstrate the capabilities of the Voliro T flying robot to investors and inspection service providers.

In addition, the Osprey team will be able to train Voliro T pilots to the highest level. The first internally trained class of Voliro T operators has completed their training, according to Osprey. The training focused on how to maintain professional control of the system in a variety of increasingly complex situations, according to a statement from Osprey.

The Voliro T flying robot developed by Voliro has exceptional freedom of movement, can change its position without restriction and touch objects at any angle, according to a company press release. According to Voliro, this "unique drone" can be used to further expand non-destructive testing.
