U.K.-headquartered drone consultant Consortiq has opened up a new office in Annapolis, Md.
Describing neighboring Washington, D.C., as a “central East Coast drone innovation hub,” Consortiq is offering training and consultancy services, including for Part 107, for unmanned aircraft system (UAS) operators. The company says it offers customized solutions for media and emergency services applications, specifically.
At the new office are Miriam Hinthorn, U.S. operations manager; Martin Lachance, U.S. chief instructor; and Tim Brown, course instructor. Leading the U.S. team is retired Major Bryan McKernan, newly appointed as U.S. director of operations at Consortiq.
“After working in the territory for many years, we’re thrilled to announce our official American expansion, and it marks the start of an exciting time for the company; as interest around drones has increased, so have the demands of our clients and the sector,” comments Paul Rigby, CEO of Consortiq.
