Our Vision

We want to use unmanned aviation to make our world a better place.

Every day, thousands of miles are flown to conduct work which ranges from transporting time-critical goods, surveying pipelines, and monitoring waterways through to inspecting crops, tracking livestock and recording environmental data.

But aviation today has a problem. It takes a huge amount of fuel to fly a person safely, which is expensive, damaging to the environment, and ultimately unsustainable. And yet demand for services continues to grow.

At Flylogix, we are bringing together artificial intelligence, satellite communication and low-cost electronics to develop a new generation of smaller, more efficient, unmanned aircraft.  We use these to transform remote operations, dramatically reducing carbon emissions, improving safety and providing new cost-effective solutions.

We are the future of aviation services.

 

Our Values

Our values drive everything we do and how we do everything.

Brave

We make bold leaps and work relentlessly to realise them.

Different

We are diverse in our opinions and united in our decisions.

Determined

We fail, learn and succeed together.
