The Thorpe Seeop Flight Center has been in operation since the late-1980s.
Thorpe Seeop Corporation (TSC) was founded to manufacture, operate, lease and/or sell cost-effective Seeop Systems to customers around the world.
The company now offers a training program through its Flight Center. The Flight Center is the world’s first to be open to the public. Thus, civilian researchers and commercial clients may send their flight operations personnel to the Flight Center to receive flight training or to demonstrate their currency and flying skills on TSC-owned air vehicles. This benefits the client by eliminating the uncertainty with new pilots and provides an ideal venue for experienced pilots to practice without adding risk to the project’s vehicle.
Training and currency work is offered at the Flight Center using any of the several vehicles manufactured by TSC. Both external and internal instruction and currency flying is available which include day and/or night operations
Certified "high-time" instructors are used to support the curriculum and conduct flight operations at the Flight Center facilities. Offsite programs are also available for those clients seeking training or currency support at their own location.
Since 1993 the company has supported robotic air vehicle training with the United States Department of Defense by manufacturing the Pioneer Proficiency Half Scale, model number P-7108. The United States Army, Navy, and Marine Corps presently use these vehicles at facilities across the country.
Your Instructors are intent on your success. They have worked in the robotics aviation industry for many years. This cutting edge industry has suffered decades of shoddy piloting practice - particularly in certain applications. To encourage the industry and foster significantly improved operational experience, the Flight Center’s Instructors are dedicated to rigorously train the successful Flight Center Graduate.
Competent training coupled with superior pilot proficiency through operations skill and experience most directly affect the industry’s overall operational success. In this way, the Graduate will be best prepared for a rapidly growing, changing application of this technology.
