Melanie Richards winner of 2nd round drone competition



We have a winner!

Congratulations Melanie Richards! Melanie is the winner of our recent drone competition and now proud owner of a DJI Mavic Mini.

The aviation industry is still rather conservative. However, the world is changing fast, requiring the sector to deliberately disrupt itself and make a conscious effort to do business differently. This will demand greater collection and sharing of data, and more investment in the digital technologies needed to make sense of that data. It will require agility, flexibility, and innovative thinking.

That is why we challenged you in this round of our drone competition with this question: If you could change one thing about the aviation industry today, what would that be and why?

Melanie's idea?

"If there is one thing I would change in the industry, it would be sliders next to each seat on the aircraft. That would divide the seats, increasing privacy, hygiene and peace of mind on your flight. An automated feature should be in into place to ensure that in any emergency your walkway is not hindered."

We found Melanie's idea to be simple, yet powerful and highly relevant.

A big thank you again to everybody else that participated in this drone competition. We were inspired by the many creative ideas that we received on how to innovate the aviation world!

At Mainblades are convinced: the future belongs to those who embrace this mindset and push the boundaries of innovation. Is your organization currently doing that? What are you looking forward to most in 2021? Will you be using drones to inspect your fleet this year? Let us know what you think in the comment section or drop us a mail!
