Focus on the mission and leave the piloting to us. Qualified fleet operators can take advantage of Rotor’s full-service piloting offerings that guarantee mission success at a compelling per-hour price point.
CloudPilot services are powered by high-time, qualified pilots with experience in your mission.
CloudPilot pilots fly with Rotor’s Synthetic Vision system from hundreds or thousands of miles away as if they were there with the aircraft, enabled by low-latency satellite and cellular communications.
We maintain a corps of pilots ready to fly whenever you need. Stop worrying about dispatch readiness or crew time-outs.
High pilot utilization helps to keep hourly rates affordable.
The R550X's communications gateway can simultaneously maintain 6 communications links of various types, making complete loss of link highly unlikely.
In case of loss of link, the aircraft can perform one of several predetermined maneuvers, according to operator preference. It can loiter and attempt to regain link, or it can return to base along predetermined routes and land safely.
The R550X and GCS support a variety of direct radio, LTE/cellular, and satellite links. Direct radio links generally have ranges of between 10 and 50 miles, depending on the terrain and regulatory allowances. LTE/cellular and satellite links offering the possibility of much longer ranges, measured in the hundreds or thousands of miles.
