Meet Nicolas Parant, CEO of Cesa Drones

Meet Nicolas Parant has been involved in the organization of UAV SHOW since the first edition.

How did you discover the drone industry?

I started out as an airman in the French Air Force, then became a flight director at an air base for 18 years, during which time I flew 3,000 hours on combat aircraft.

After my career in the army, I joined the La Poste group as a logistics director.

In 2018, I became an expert and remote pilot of drones, I was doing thermography, infrastructure inspections, visible and infrared image processing.

At the same time I created and took over the management of Cesa Drones.
