Sinclair Community College has forged a relationship with Switzerland-based senseFly, a provider of fixed-wing drone solutions, to become its primary North American partner.
The Dayton-based college’s National UAS Training and Certification Center will provide standardized training solutions for senseFly’s clients to complement direct training with the company and its distribution partners, according to Sinclair.
The partnership will not only broaden the reach of senseFly’s drone solutions, but also expand its training offerings through Sinclair’s internationally recognized UAS center.
“As a leading industry provider of UAS solutions, senseFly’s multiple product options meet business challenges across a broad range of industry applications,” said Jeffrey Miller, chief operating officer for Sinclair’s UAS Center. “We are excited to collaborate with senseFly to leverage our vast experience in providing drone training, ensuring their clients continue to be well prepared to effectively maximize their investments in senseFly products.”
Jean-Thomas Célette, managing director of senseFly, added that partnerships with industry leaders like Sinclair are “key” as the company looks to strengthen its client solutions.
“Sinclair’s National UAS Training and Certification Center is an excellent partner for senseFly due to their innovative approach to creating comprehensive training programs coupled with their experience using drone technology to support their collaborations in applied research and development, commercialization and consulting work,” Célette said.
Since 2008, Sinclair has been at the forefront of UAS innovation by creating partnerships, developing curriculum and investing significantly to establish an internationally-recognized program to meet growing UAS workforce and technology demands.
