XSun delivers SolarXOne training to Eagle Eye Innovations

Group of men stood behind large fixed wing solar powered drone.

Two instructors from Eagle Eye Innovations (EEI) Ltd recently spent a week at XSun’s headquarters, at Pays de le Loire in France, learning to operate the unique SolarXOne Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). The team from EEI are the first operators outside of XSun to receive such training.

The training consisted of technical classroom instruction and live flying on the SolarXOne. The platform is a fixed wing sub-25kg to 28kg system, depending on payload fit. Thanks to its wing-mounted solar panels, this extraordinary aircraft can have an endurance ranging from 3hrs to 12hrs depending on weather conditions, which is unique within its weight class.
