Midrand, 6 October 2018: Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the first commercially successful VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a reseller agreement with Aciel Geomatics, a company aimed at supplying and supporting clients with high-quality solutions for the surveying, mapping, monitoring and mining industries.

Helgardt van Heerden, Managing Director of Aciel Geomatics commented: “The partnership with Wingtra is one we feel will boost fixed wing solutions in the industry as a whole. Aciel Geomatics is very pleased to be aligned with Wingtra and feel they offer the best solutions for our customers. We look forward to this being a successful relationship and seeing it grow from strength to strength.”

Leopold Flechsenberger, Sales Manager at Wingtra also added, “We are excited about this new partnership with Aciel Geomatics. It’s another step to develop our capacity for sales and service processes in Africa, where Aciel is a well-regarded distributor of high-tech equipment. It is great that more surveying and mapping professionals will have easier access to high quality VTOL drones and customer service through Aciel’s office in Midrand.”

WingtraOne takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry professional sensors (e.g. 40MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas.

The PPK (post process kinematics) upgrade allows the WingtraOne to reach new level of accuracy. With the highest quality sensors: the Sony RX1RII and state-of-the-art PPK system, WingtraOne reaches accuracy down to 1 cm without any ground control points.
