What is a drone?2021-10-31T22:37:42+13:00

The term “drone” usually refers to any unpiloted aircraft, also known as “Unmanned Aerial Vehicles” (UAVs). A typical unmanned aircraft is made of light composite materials to reduce weight and increase manoeuvrability.

They can be equipped with a variety of additional equipment (payloads), including cameras, navigation systems, sensors, and various other drone software and hardware.

Drones can come in a broad range of shapes, sizes, and with various functions. The vast majority of today’s models are operated with ground control stations.


Why an Aeronavics drone?2021-10-31T22:28:08+13:00

We are often asked what sets us apart from other drone manufacturers.

Aeronavics drones enable the purchaser to change what the drone is used for by simply changing the payload. Different models of drones cater for different payload sizes and operating environments.

Safety and reliability are our priorities.  Our drones are fitted with a range of sensors to capture critical system performance data. Any anomalies can be reported to prevent incidents in flight – protecting your asset and people and property on the ground.

Our standard payloads appeal to many industrial clients who need high quality and reliable drone solutions. While our customising capabilities are well-suited to research institutes and specialised payload manufacturers who want to integrate on a drone platform.
