Our Story


August 2015

National Drones started over a beer. After a few years running a successful building and roof inspection business in Melbourne, Co-Founders, Brad Aylett and Kevin Scrimshaw realised that they could work much faster, safer and more cost-effectively if they used drones in their business.

They saw a gap in the market, the opportunity to scale and National Drones was born.


June 2016

National Drones merged with Fly UAS. Ben Harris joins as a Director. National Drones now offers drone pilot training in-house.


January 2017
