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.
