He has a strong vision for the future of the industry and is incredibly driven and excited by all the possibilities and efficiencies that this new technology can bring to various industries and special projects.

Program Summary

The list of industries getting disrupted by the once-humble drone keeps on growing. Brazilian metals and mining giant, Vale S.A., has slashed geotechnical field surveys from 3 hours to just 20 minutes using drones. At the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge in Cincinnati, automated UAVs driven by flight planning software have enabled bridge maintenance crews to quickly and accurately appraise the state of infrastructure elements, realizing cost savings of 40%. With their mobility, ease of use and ability to carry sophisticated tools like sensors, drones are rapidly becoming invaluable enablers of efficiency across different sectors.

Programs, dates and locations are subject to change. In accordance with Clariden Global policy, we do not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age, national or disability in admission to our programs.


The list of use cases for drone technology is rapidly growing alongside its potential to disrupt and optimize. From simple aerial photography that costs a fraction of what using manned aircraft would cost to perform geo-mapping, incident detection and other applications, drones have transformed work on the ground in various industries. Australian transport infrastructure company Transurban, for instance, has used inspection drones to speedily gather infrastructure data even in confined spaces and dark conditions under bridges and roads, removing the need for disruptive closures that cause drivers huge inconvenience while significantly boosting team productivity and efficiency.

In this 2-day program, certified RePL and PPL Pilot Andrew Chapman will walk you through key strategies and case studies around deploying drones in various operations and industries. You will also learn about the latest CASA drone regulations and the challenges these may bring, get a glimpse into the future of drones - including AI, machine learning and drone swarms - and gain a better understanding of how to improve the accuracy, processing and management of drone data captures.
