Schiebel announced at its User Conference, which took place from 15 to 17 October in Vienna this year, a Capability Update Programme (CUP) to provide customers with a further enhanced CAMCOPTER® S-100.
Once again, Schiebel hosted users from all over the world at its User Conference in Vienna. The conference provides a platform for sharing users' experiences and to update on new developments and innovations for the CAMCOPTER® S-100.
In the course of the three-day conference, Schiebel announced its programme of work, with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), to provide customers with a further enhanced product to meet future Civil Aviation Standards for operation in public air space. The rapidly evolving Unmanned Air System (UAS) market drove the decision to start a programme ensuring the future full certifiability of the CAMCOPTER® S-100.
"Since launch, our CAMCOPTER® S-100 has steadily and continuously evolved. As the market leader for Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) UAS we're looking back at more than 20 years of experience and continued development. Given today's market demands and the ever changing airworthiness requirements, it was a logical step for us to launch our CUP," said Hans Georg Schiebel, Chairman of the Schiebel Group.
"The User Conference offers a unique opportunity to exchange experiences with other users and to hear about Schiebel's plans. It goes to show that the company really listens to their customers and to the market's needs. The workshops are an excellent platform to update our knowledge and to network with other customers. The CUP is a forward-thinking and innovative project and I am very much looking forward to the outcome," said Alexandre Durget, Head of the French Navy UAV Unit.
