In our interview series "At The Controls" we talk to our community of drone pilots and operators about their experiences of working with drones and using SOARIZON to manage their operations. For our third instalment, we caught up with Chris Flannagan, a British Army Veteran who has also served with Wiltshire and Thames Valley Police. Chris is the CEO of TLP - Drone Security Specialists, a commercial drone company specialising in drone security and public safety solutions.
Here at SOARIZON, we work with organisations of all sizes that have big ambitions for their enterprise drone operations, but what are the first steps to starting a drone programme in your business?
For every company in the power and utilities sector, safety is critical. Within inspection and monitoring, drones can provide remote solution in hazardous or hard to reach areas in a fraction of the time, eliminating the need to put workers in harm’s way.

Drones are increasingly being used in the agricultural sector to help reduce error by providing more accurate data and facilitating a quicker response to adverse weather conditions and disasters, such as floods or droughts. Drones can be used in various aspects of agricultural work, including seeding, livestock, spraying, maintaining insecticide and pesticide levels, and monitoring irrigation systems.
