Archerfield Airport Corporation commends the professional management of Aviation Projects which has driven this project and ensured we continue to make steady, but substantial progress towards achieving our strategic goals. Thanks to this shared commitment, we look forward to an exciting new chapter of growth at Archerfield Airport.
Drone technology and its use is one of the fastest growing sectors in the global economy. Sales of recreational and commercial drones are expected to grow from a base of $8.5 billion in 2016 to $12 billion by 2021 (41%). Drone-related industries are also expected to grow at similar rates.
Aviation Projects recently worked with AEC to develop the Fraser Coast Drones Strategy, which sets out a long-term blueprint for growing economic activity on the back of drone-related activity in the Fraser Coast Region.
A detailed and pragmatic investment attraction and sector development program was developed, with a view to delivering real and tangible outcomes for the local area. Key focus areas will include:
- Consistent and Constructive Policy Alignment
- Increased Community Awareness of the Fraser Coast Drone Strategy
- Infrastructure Needed to Drive Industry Growth
- Incentivisation, Grants and Promotion Programs
- A Collaboration and Advocacy Strategy.
A copy of the strategy can be found on the Fraser Coast Council website.
