A licence to fly a drone can be obtained in just a few hours (without the need to actually fly a drone!). However, complex inspection services require highly specific training and piloting skills.

An inspection pilot needs to be able to fly a drone smoothly and safely, (without using automated flight management systems such as GPS), and have the experience and knowledge to quickly react to situations as they arise.

Exactly how sensors and equipment are affected by RFI (or the proximity of ferrous materials) are just some of the many factors a competent drone inspection pilot will understand and mitigate during their risk assessment.
