About Kopterflug

Who we are - what we do

Kopterflug GmbH

We do pioneering work in the field of industrial drone inspection

Our goals are to improve occupational safety, enhance inspections and reduce costs. Our background in manned aviation enables us to communicate with aviation authorities at eye level and to consider complex aviation law, aviatic, technical and meteorological challenges and to carry out demanding assignments. For us, visual inspections, such as drone flights or camera shots, begin with the mission planning, both in terms of process technology and aviation law, and are strictly oriented towards customer requirements. The drone mission itself is performed strictly according to standards that are based on those of manned aviation. Subsequently, we process the collected data and make it available via corporate cloud. We will be happy to help you connect the data with your maintenance software. On demand we can then inspect the same facilities or infrastructures on a recurring basis and make the data available to you in a completely convenient and transparent manner. This ensures continuous condition monitoring.
