CONSULTING

Aero247 provides expert drone consulting services to organizations that want to launch a drone program, have an existing drone program that needs improvement or who want to increase their skill level for more advanced projects. Our strength is that we know drones and will provide you with factual and experienced support, not just theory. We work with our global partners & clients to understand their business and how drones and related technologies can help deliver benefits on a regular basis. We work with a variety of industries, which include Energy, Construction, Engineering, Government, Public Safety and Agriculture. If you want to cut down your learning and implementation curve dramatically, give us a call to learn how we can implement a drone program for your organisation.

DRONE 

ENGINEERING

The future is here. We have embraced the latest technology to provide our clients with the most cutting-edge drone engineering services the industry has to offer. Drone technology is now incorporated into virtually all of our services, and is guaranteed to increase quality and efficiency without breaking the bank. 

UAV TRAINING

Learn all about drone designing, manufacturing, engineering, maintenance, repairs, 3D printing, modeling, analysis, programming, embedded systems, MATLAB, SolidWorks, CATIA and CFD. 

We have three programs on offer namely:- ​ 

 1. 2-day Basic Drone Making and Programming Workshop.  ​ 

 2. 5-day UAV Systems Engineer Certification course.  ​ 

 3. 6-week Diploma in UAV Systems Engineer course (coming soon)...  ​ 

We conduct drone engineering training of any kind which will suit every client's needs and requirements - for corporates, government agencies, institutions of higher learning etc. So if you have special drone engineering or technology training requirements please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We will tailor-make a perfect training plan for you. ​

DRONES FOR 
STEM PROGRAM

The hands-on drone technology workshops for Grades 3 to 11 are designed to stimulate the interest of maths and science through building, coding and flying drones. We will coach pupils on the basics of building a drone from scratch, coding and the requisite skills for piloting and landing an unmanned aerial vehicle in their respective schools. Our program provides skills useful for future employment or business creation. We practically and theoretically prepare pupils for aviation, aerospace, robotics, artificial intelligence and aeronautics careers through unmanned autonomous vehicles.
