About National Drones

At National Drones, we are proud to be Australia’s first franchised business system offering drone services. We’ve positioned ourselves as Australia’s safest, most recognised, respected, accessible and affordable professional aerial photography, aerial videography, aerial spotting and aerial surveillance service provider utilising remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS).

Recent advances in battery technology, coupled with the emergence of reliable and affordable RTF (ready-to-fly) systems, has seen a number of industries embrace the technology commonly known as ‘drones’, as a way to cut costs, deliver efficiencies and save time when compared to traditional methods of capturing aerial photography and videography and conducting aerial spotting and aerial surveillance works (namely, the use of helicopters).

Furthermore, applications that simply wouldn’t have been economical to perform using a helicopter, can now be performed using an ‘unmanned aerial vehicle’ (UAV), or ‘remotely piloted aircraft system’ (RPAS) as they are becoming more widely referred to, to conduct low-noise, low-altitude, low-risk flight operations at an increasingly affordable rate.

Analysts predict that the market for drones (including services), currently valued US$9.1bn is set to grow ten-fold over the next decade. Whilst military spending accounts for a significant proportion of this, consumer and industrial markets are tipped to have decades of growth ahead of them, according to the September 8, 2015 report “Drones: A Rising Market” co-authored by Sean Peasgood (President & CEO) and Marcel Valentin (Vice President) of Sophic Capital.
