On May 12th, CANARD successfully carried out the first PAPI drone inspection in Greece, following the request of Fraport Greece to operate at Thessaloniki “Makedonia” Airport. The operation led by CANARD included the inspection of the PAPI systems of header 16 with the collaboration of the drone operator company Hellenic Drones.
As soon as the operation was over, CANARD presented to Fraport Greece the report with the results. The measurements taken by CANARD Solution with the drone were consistent with the official results obtained in the inspection carried out a few weeks earlier.
Previous to the operation, CANARD and Fraport Greece managed successfully the coordination and documentation required to fly in the airport. To provide a high-quality service, Hellenic Drones’ pilots received the specific training and were supervised by CANARD experts before and during the operation. The inspection ended in a successful showcase of CANARD’s expertise and benefits of its solutions for PAPI calibrations.
