Intelligence is not the ability to store information, but to know where to find it.
Making sense of data

‘Another black box recorder’
January 15 will mark the fourteenth anniversary of the ditching of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in New York following multiple Canada geese strikes. The story of the 2009 ‘miracle on the Hudson’ is well known. Captain Sullenberger and the flight crew’s measured actions in landing the A320 and the 155 people aboard safely with no fatalities have been widely publicised and rightly acclaimed.

Dr Jeff McKee is Avisure’s Director of Research and Development, although with recent projects he is collaborating on, R&D could more accurately stand for research and drones. A scientist, licensed fixed-wing pilot, and Avisure’s chief remote pilot, McKee is using drones to streamline several wildlife research projects.
