Taking Remote Work to a Whole New Level

The next major wave of innovation in aviation is here. Drones, or UAS as they are called, offer a perfect blend of aviation and technology that will transform the way we work, travel, and get products delivered to our doorsteps.

At Essential Aero, we are at the forefront of this market pushing the boundaries in process automation using UAS for data collection and service delivery to create new and better solutions for critical and expensive industry challenges.

It is early in the innovation cycle which means there are many challenges to conquer and much more to discover as we move from vision to reality.

We know this is where the best product teams thrive. That said, it’s not for everyone. At Unwired Planet back in 1995, we were told by some of the smartest people in telecom that putting the Internet on a mobile phone was a dumb idea. Again while at Joingo 2010 we were told by 95% of the smartest people in gaming that consumers will not use mobile phones for games. Not going to lie, proving critics wrong is also incredibly satisfying.

We believe it is our duty as innovators to push beyond what is possible to create and deliver real solutions that operate safely over our communities.
