Our guest is Kate Kienapple at Coastal Drone Co! It was great to catch up with Kate who has a background as a commercial pilot and years of experience in the UAV training and services space. I experienced Kate’s UAV ground school training first hand as she was my original instructor, and following that I also had the opportunity to work directly with her at Aerobotika. She is now pursuing a number of UAV initiatives with Coastal Drone Co, based in Surrey, BC. During this interview we had the chance to discuss a number of different topics, with some great answers from Kate.
Some of the topics covered in this podcast episode:
- Details on rolling out UAV training
- Why do some drone companies fail?
- What to expect at UAV ground school
- How to differentiate yourself as a drone company
- The evolution of Canadian regulations
