Villeneuve Airport, operated by Edmonton Airports, is pleased to welcome Pegasus Imagery as its newest tenant.
Pegasus Imagery designs, manufactures and operates long range autonomous aircraft and sensors to deliver data solutions at scale. The company was originally based at Edmonton International Airport (EIA) but has now relocated to the region’s main training and general aviation airport, located in Sturgeon County, west of St. Albert. Its new space is larger and provides increased flight function capabilities. Pegasus Imagery’s move is also part of expanding the Alberta Aerospace and Technology Centre to Villeneuve Airport.
The integration of remotely piloted aircraft systems (drones) with manned aircraft is always done with safety as the top priority. Both Pegasus Imagery and staff at Villeneuve Airport, with cooperation from Nav Canada, ensure that general aviation at the airport can continue while the company further refines and develops it autonomous aircraft.
