Drones are finding application in many fields including agriculture, media, tourism, emergency services, mining, surveying, land conservation, and photography. Many in the Central Ranges are embracing this dynamic, emerging field, and local young people are taking the lead.
Daniel Williams is a year 11 student from Avenel who has built an aerial surveying, photography filming business from scratch using drone technology. Daniel takes amazing aerial footage and photographs for a range of applications including real estate, agriculture, and promotional videos.
Central Ranges LLEN is proud to announce Daniel as an Industry Ambassador. You can learn more about his business here
In great news for those who want to get involved, nine schools in Mitchell, Murrindindi, Strathbogie and Whittlesea (Alexandra, Assumption, Broadford, Euroa, St Mary’s, Seymour, Yea, Wallan and Whittlesea), are offering the Certificate III in Aviation (Remote Pilot – Visual Line of Sight) to students as part of their VCE. The Central Ranges Trade Training Centre (CRTTC), a joint initiative of these schools, will also be offering drone training to the general public starting in late September this year. Carlo De Martinis, Executive Manager of the CRTTC, is similarly enthusiastic about the future of drones.
“Drones are a new tool that will revolutionise the way work is done, and open new opportunities in many fields. The list of applications is only limited by imagination.”
