The design of the self-flying Avy Aera reflects the refined principles of Dutch design. This aerial drone can take-off and land vertically, making hard-to-reach places accessible. The drone is capable of covering long distances thanks to its wings, making it about ten times more efficient than conventional drones. Avy's drone network is fully electric, emission-free and operates at low noise levels. The future of aviation has arrived. Avy is currently active in the European and African markets.

The Avy-team is focused on making a global impact in more ways than one. The drones are unique as they can fly hundreds of kilometers, upload pictures in real time and detect heat. It makes them the perfect partner to help save rhinos and elephants from poachers in Africa, to detect fires at a very early stage in high-risk areas like Portugal or to deliver anti venom in remote areas after a snake bite. And they are only just getting started!

Patrique Zaman, founder of Avy: "The growth we have experienced over the last few years is amazing. Shawn is one of the rare people in 'business-land' that is warm, straightforward, honest, adventurous and willing to make a positive impact on the world. And she does it all at the same time! With her bright insights and straight-forward way of communicating, she keeps me sharp and helps Avy reach for the skies. "
