MONTREAL — Volatus Aerospace Corp. has agreed to acquire Pennsylvania-based drone service provider ConnexiCore LLC. The acquisition will create the largest Drone Service Provider in North America, with a pilot network blanketing Canada and the United States. The transaction is expected to close on July 30, subject to due diligence.

The move adds over 1,100 FAA-certified ConnexiCore UAV pilots, software mapping consultants, and industry-specific subject matter experts to the existing Volatus network. ConnexiCore is the U.S. industry leader in aerial drone data collection, image and video analytics, 3D modelling, building envelope inspections, photogrammetry, and aerial mapping. Pilots in their fleet are provided with regular upskill training, mentoring, and outreach initiatives. ConnexiCore tasks them on projects that best meet their qualifications and skill set.

“Joining Volatus is about accelerating growth and expanding our national service offering,” said Frank Segarra, CEO of ConnexiCore. “Having the strength of their resources will allow us to develop further and unleash the full potential of our pilot network across this great nation.”

“Frank and his team have built a formidable footprint across America,” said Glen Lynch, CEO of Volatus Aerospace. “Their presence, brand, and pilot network provide immediate access to the U.S. market. In addition, their Façade Inspection program and the ConnexiCore Cloud platform for infrastructure inspections add value to the capabilities of our Canadian network.”
