Nic Dyson is an RPAS Instructor/Assessor. His drone qualifications are sub 7kg, sub 25kg and night rated with a total of roughly 4600 flights and 560 hours flight time.
His introduction to the drone industry was through Ripper, as they were running a joint program with a local job provider known as ETC to help skill and employ struggling young adults. Nic excelled within the two week RePL course and was offered a position as a pilot within Ripper.
What Nic loves most about his job at Ripper is its uniqueness in applications that they are able to develop for safety through drone technology and being able to teach others about how awesome drones can be.
As for his coolest drone experience, it’s hard to pinpoint the coolest thing he’s seen or done with drones, but highlights include: a mother whale teaching her calf how to slap, dolphins surfing waves and clearing the water at the beach with our rescue drones with a siren because a shark is way too close to the swimmers.
Drones and drone technology are in an era of innovation. RipperCorp is the team leading that innovation from the front. You can view our courses and their upcoming dates or request a callback to engage us for drone operations.
