Oct. 23, 2017

Northern Maine Community College students learning about wind power now have another tool in their educational tool kit: flying drones. The college reports that Wind Power Technology instructor Wayne Kilcollins recently became certified to fly drones for business and work, and he will incorporate his knowledge into the curriculum, demonstrating how to inspect wind turbine blades and nacelles using a drone. Inspections by drone are becoming an industry standard.
