Aerochester is a University of Chester initiative to provide Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle platforms to enable research and teaching in a wide variety of fields. Initially formed up to investigate localised gas dispersal patterns, it became clear that data-capture from airborne vehicles is demanded by a wide range of disciplines.
Operating from the University of Chester gives us a competitive advantage of having a nucleus of Subject Matter Experts from many disciplines on-hand to support end data interpretation and application in examining real-world problems. Through its core team of Flight Operatives, qualified and operating to CAA standards, Aerochester is well-placed to provide a variety of airborne data capture services to a diverse set of customers and stakeholders.
Our vision is to offer cost-effective UAV solutions that enable teaching and research teams to focus on their primary activities, safe in the knowledge that aerial platforms are taken care of by competent, skilled and experienced personnel.
We provide our customers with a fully managed service that offers serviceable, airworthy and safety-focused operations at an efficiency of cost that would be otherwise prohibitive to individual users. Through coupling our fully risk-managed services and CAA compliant task processes with our access to multiple Subject Matter Experts, Aerochester aims to be the natural point of call for airborne data capture services.
