Kingston Smith & Partners appointed administrator to drone pilot training company

Ian Robert and Brian Baker, partners at Kingston Smith & Partners, were appointed Joint Administrators of the innovative drone pilot training and industry standards business, European UAV Systems Centre Limited, on 20 January 2017.

The business has been at the cutting edge of drone technology since the late 1990s and is well positioned within the European market, with active subsidiary businesses in Holland and Spain, plus a part-stake in Italy. It has industry-leading training, standards, flight schools and pilot qualifications, and has links to the Civil Aviation Authority and other recognised authorities throughout the world

Ian Robert, Joint Administrator of European UAV Systems Centre Limited, said: “We are looking to sell this business to someone who can develop it further and take it to the next stage, at a time when drone technology is entering a new episode in its commercial application.”

The European network continues to trade as usual and is unaffected by the administration of its UK parent business. Interested parties should contact Ian Robert on 020 7566 4020 or at ks&pllp@mks.co.uk
