Flyability and XD4Solutions Announce a Partnership to Tackle the Brazilian Market.

[ May 16th, 2018] Flyability announces its partnership with XD4Solutions which becomes an authorized reseller, a training center, and a maintenance center for Flyability Elios, the collision-tolerant indoor inspection and exploration drone.


With a large number of extraction and production assets to maintain and an increased price pressure, Brazilian Oil & Gas and Mining companies face the need to reduce the cost of their operations without compromising the safety of their workers. Addressing the Brazilian market with Elios has come naturally in the expansion plan of Flyability, which started with the Anatel certification of Elios.

With a team composed of professional offshore helicopter pilots, offshore Oil & Gas operations, cartographer engineer, and UAV pilots, XD4Solutions is a great partner to bring Flyability Elios to the Brazilian heavy manufacturing industries. Prospective customers can rely on the expertise and advice of XD4Solutions to proceed with the acquisition of Elios for their indoor inspection needs. “As an helicopter pilot with countless hours of offshore flights, I know how much safety is paramount in the Oil & Gas industry,” says Pierre Verardi, CEO of XD4Solutions. “I was immediately convinced by the technology of Elios and offered my support to Flyability right from the start.”

On top of reselling Flyability’s products, XD4Solutions will be able to train pilots to the specifics of operating the Elios drone. “We recently assessed the ability of XD4Solutions to provide introductory and advanced training courses on behalf of Flyability. What we have seen is extremely professional and promises a high level of education to our Brazilian customers,” says Pierre-Yves Guernier, Director of Operations of Flyability. At the same time, XD4Solutions becomes a maintenance center for Flyability and is officially authorized to service Elioses on Brazilian grounds for their periodic maintenance according to Flyability’s procedures and standards.

“The support and dedication of a partner such as XD4Solutions will be instrumental to grow Elios presence in the Brazilian market and provide customer with the best possible service,” says Patrick Thévoz, CEO of Flyability. “We are proud and happy to kick off this partnership at the Drone Show Latin America with Pierre Verardi and his team”

XD4Solutions is demonstrating Elios during the Drone Show Latin America 2018 in São Paulo from May 15th to May 17 th. Stopping by booth #202 is the opportunity to see it fly and potential try it for yourself.
