As part of KEC’s purchase of MMC Spider drones a ten-day training for engineers at KEC International limited is executed to make them successfully deploy the drones to help their stringing project in current line as well as upcoming line. For this 8 people were attended from KEC International limited.
Training program was scheduled for 10 days and as part of MMC policy the training is divvied into 3 parts:
During these stages the trainee performance is evaluated and will select the best ones for actual flight training. At KEC International limted MMC finally selected 4 people to give the actual flight training and trained them with detailed flight procedures, safety and emergency handling procedures. So, within a span of two months their first line will be finished and during this time pilots will use our drones and get used to flying more and for the second phase of transmission they will deploy our drones and considering its topography difficulty this phase will be more helpful with usage of MMC UAV–Spider drone for finishing the transmission line stringing job at Akhaltsikhe-Batumi line in more fast phase.
