Based in the world’s largest indoor climbing arena at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA), less than five miles from the Edinburgh International Airport, the new office will give Cyberhawk room to expand, in a spectacular setting.The move – a result of major contract wins and subsequent staff growth – will give the company the ability to train pilots in a more realistic, all-weather environment, including an ‘outdoor training park’ complete with its own electricity pylon and flare stack, in addition to a covered 30m high indoor flying zone.
Cyberhawk has enjoyed exponential growth during the past two years; a key driver has been its next generation visualisation software, iHawk. Since the launch of the software in 2013, it has proved highly popular across the sectors, having been adopted by several oil and gas supermajors and many electricity utility companies.The new office will allow for the continued growth of the software and digital team that developed iHawk, whilst the recent bespoke fit-out also includes advanced IT infrastructure and connectivity to future proof the expected requirement for high-speed client data delivery and storage.
Cyberhawk CEO, Chris Fleming, said: “It has been a very exciting start to 2019 for us and the move to EICA at Ratho has been a personal dream of mine for over five years. We have a unique set of requirements as a company and I was amazed to have found them all at Ratho. It is a world-class facility and say a big thank you to Edinburgh Leisure and the Edinburgh City Council for helping us make that dream a reality.”“We are lucky enough to call it home and the added benefit of the recreational facilities, the nearby canal link to Edinburgh and the promise of a surf facility right next door, make it all the more exciting.”
