Our story started in 2015 when our co-founders, aviation industry professionals, were confronted with the difficult and time-consuming operation of having to inspect the upper fuselage of test aircraft. They realised that general visual inspection (GVI) procedures had not evolved since the beginning of commercial aviation, requiring heavy equipment and putting workers at risk. There was a real opportunity to disrupt the way inspections have been done for the past 40 years.
After validating market interest and technical feasibility, Donecle was founded in 2015, leveraging our strong expertise in aircraft maintenance processes, designing aircraft structures, drone robotics, automation and computer vision deep learning.
Today we are a team of more than 20 and are constantly growing to deliver an efficent solution for aircraft inspection to our clients.
Donecle is now the worldwide leader of automated aircraft general visual inspection based on drone technology, offering a unique solution combining a 100% automated drone with advanced image analysis algorithms.
Our customers include airlines, third party MROs, aircraft OEMs and military operators worldwide.
