Founded in 2020, African Drone Solutions has come a long way from its beginnings as an organic idea proposed to revolutionize the Angolan drone service industry.
When Afonso first started to research the drone service industry during his university aeronautical studies in the United States, he saw an opportunity to bring this idea to the untapped African market. He sought out to his long-time friends Antonio and Joao with an agricultural foothold in Angola to propose the idea of combining know-how and tackling this great endeavor together.
By combining our passions, through hard work and determination, we are now a drone service company with a major footprint in the Angolan market that serves all customers in the agricultural, infrastructure and mining industry.
We are dedicated to giving you the very best solution that fits your needs, with a special focus on: efficiency, customer serivce, and uniqueness. We are thrilled to be part of such a highly technological and revolutionizing industry that demands constant innovation. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you.
