The Drone Industry is “Finally Scaling”
“The underlying premise of the drone industry today, as opposed to the last 20 years that we’ve been in it is that it is finally scaling,” said CEO Cameron Chell during the earnings call.
“In the last two years, two major things have happened in the drone industry. First of all, the FAA came up with clear guidance around, in particular, beyond visual line of sight. The other thing that happened, both from a sentiment and a policy basis is really the advent of the recognition that nothing collects data better than a drone.”
