Dear Marmam,

We are looking for an experienced UAV pilot to be part of our EU BEST research project cruise to South Georgia and Shag Rocks, departing from Stanley (Falkland Islands) on 22 January 2018 for four weeks. The work will be focused on collection of overhead images, photogrammetry measurements and microbiome samples from southern right whales using APH-22 and Inspire drones. The research platform will be RV Song of the Whale [http://www.marineconservationresearch.co.uk/rv-song-of-the-whale/].

Applications will only be considered from certified UAV pilots who have over 15 hours flight experience on the APH-22 and are experienced in the setting up and deployment of drones for cetacean work. Evidence of pilot training (school and in field) and certification must be supplied. Pilots must also have demonstrated experience safely operating in close proximity to humans, vessels and animals. Additionally, more general cetacean field survey experience is required, particularly from sailing vessels.  Experience of troubleshooting drone equipment in the field and of sailing on small yachts is also advantageous. Please provide a quote for costs per day and CV demonstrating suitability for the requirements set out above.

Application deadline Monday 17th July 2017.

Thanks and best wishes,
