WWD Podcast EP13: Mauricio Ortiz at Aeromao

Our guest is Mauricio Ortiz, who is the Owner of Aeromao!  As a Canadian leader in fixed-wing UAV manufacturing, they have exported to more than 45 countries in less than 4 years! The biggest standout features for these drones is the long flight time, ability to carry multiple sensors, and the affordability when compared to other units of similar spec on the market.  I’ve been following Aeromao for a few years now and I’ve noticed how quickly they have grown.  It was great to catch up with Mauricio and hear about his latest UAV adventures, including a trip to the Maldives!

  • What types of drone jobs do your clients execute?
