AVIDRONE Aerospace designs and manufactures fully automated unmanned flying drone systems for commercial applications globally.

AVIDRONE’s task-specific drones enable entirely new capabilities by carrying a wide range of high definition sensors, providing automated package delivery, or lift virtually anything into the air. AVIDRONE makes drones useful and easy to operate for non-aviation industries, adapting its secure, in-house developed autopilot technology to drone aircraft weighing up to 900 lb combined with high-endurance, long range flight.

“We are pleased to welcome AVIDRONE to our facility and excited with the prospect of witnessing them press the frontiers of unmanned flight,” said Adam Keller, president of Chartright Air Group.

“All of the AVIDRONE team is pleased to join the Chartright hangar facility, with a new research and development office and manufacturing space,” said Scott Gray, founder and CEO Avidrone Aerospace Inc. “Being located at a high-end hangar with neighbours in the commercial aviation industry is important to AVIDRONE’s positioning as a leading unmanned aircraft company. I’m excited to grow our business at Chartright and within our community here at the Waterloo-Wellington International airport.”
