Sentinel Aviation

Sentinel Aviation was established by a team of UK ex-military and aviation professionals to provide training and operational solutions for the use of UAV’s in austere and hostile environments.

Sentinel Aviation’s core services are:

  • Sourcing and supply of the correct UAV for the designated mission.
  • Supply of ex-military professional pilots and operators for missions in austere and hostile environments.
  • Training of pilots and analysts for UAV operations.

Sentinel has close links with the Global manufacturers who are producing combat proven UAV solutions and therefore can be relied on to perform, whatever the mission. Sentinel is able to match the correct UAV to the required mission, deal with ITAR issues and resolve all procurement, not just of the platform, but also of training, ground control stations, antennae, sensors and spares.

Sentinel’s pilots and analysts are all selected for their experience and quality from across the UK Armed Forces. Their experience has been gained in operational theatres using a variety of UAV platforms. Our pilots are all UK CAA licensed, re-validated annually and trained to the highest standards.

Sentinel offers a full training service for all UAV’s from sub-tactical rotary UAV’s to the largest high altitude, long endurance platforms. This can be undertaken in the UK or in the theatre of operation.

Training programmes can include qualification in fixed wing aircraft to enable pilots to gain their PPL, graduated training on UAV’s, to the appropriate level of size and complexity and extensive use of simulators to develop mission skills.
