Operations Manager.

Technician, Manufacturer & Maintenance.

Daniel Gowland  is certified by CASA and holds a UAV Operators Certificate. Licence number: 1-XLCKW-01

Daniels interest in UAV design, manufacture and filming, originated at the University of Wollongong studying as a Theatre Technician and Designer for a Bachelor of Creative Arts. This followed the completion of a Diploma in Architectural Design and Drafting. Daniel worked in the production industry throughout South East Australia and completed a course in Multimedia Production at Metro Screen. During this time, remotely piloted technology was on the brink of a major leap in evolution, and the industry was starting to gain momentum.

During early 2000, when the evolution of mobile communications boomed across the world, the size and cost of sensory components started to trickle into the community of Radio Controlled design. It was with this flush of new components that the opportunity to construct stable fliyng platforms beacame a reality. From the late seventies where Daniel was first exposed  to the radio controlled community – where the mechanical set and and control of the crafts were solely a reflection of the direct action of the pilot. To the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles/ UAVs of today, Daniel has experienced almost thirty years of maturing with a technology that is now safer than ever. This has lead Daniel to become a highly experienced, skilled and agile pilot.
