About us

About us

Clear Flight Solutions is a company specializing in two fields: effective bird control and (industrial) inspections. With the combined use of our unique Robird®, drones and other exciting new technologies, we offer an unmatched level of effectiveness in both fields. We are located in the Netherlands, but work worldwide.

Effective Bird Control

Birds are beautiful creatures. However, if you work in aviation, harbours, waste management or agriculture, you will be aware that birds can be a very tough problem to deal with. Besides being a nuisance, birds can also form a serious threat to safety in aviation.

The Robird® is an environmentally-friendly solution for all your bird-related problems. The Robird® is a truly unique remotely controlled robotic bird of prey, with the realistic appearance and weight of its living counterpart. Combined with other proven techniques, the Robird® is the most effective way of bird control. You can read all about it here.

(Industrial) inspections

Imagine this: a huge field needs to be mowed, but you know there are fawns and nesting birds hiding somewhere between the high crops. Or there is a leak somewhere in a pipeline, but it will take you days to inspect everything, while the damage is increasing.

These are just two examples in which our drones have proven their effectiveness. Using a combination of infrared and other technologies, our pilots can inspect huge terrains in a small amount of time and are able to spot the smallest leak and the tiniest wildlife.

    Remote control flight and robotics have always interested me. At Clear Flight Solutions I can combine my passion for mechanics and problem solving as part of a team to create a little miracle; the Robird®. I enjoy being part of both engineering and the workshop as well as creating a bridge between these departments. In addition, I always try to find better ways and solutions to improve our products and brand.

    As a robotics engineer it is great to be working with state of the art robotics such as the Robird®. These kinds of new developments offer a lot of freedom, since you are not just reinventing the wheel but engaging in uncharted waters. This makes my job a huge challenge, but also very rewarding.
