Drone Council of SA

A platform of affiliation by various established companies and new entrants into the Drone industry.


The Drone Council SA was initiated in 2019, as an industry response to create a platform of affiliation by the various established companies  and new entrants into the industry. The all-inclusive launch was planned for May 2020, but postponed due to the lockdown.

It is a membership- based entity, and will endeavor to empower its members. The Council’s main objective is to organize its members and other stakeholders to enhance robust development of the drone economy in South Africa.

Seeds of the Council establishment were planted in March 2019, when the then Department of Economic Development (now in DTIC) initiated a Drone Economy Dialogue between government, the drone industry, training institutions, research bodies and regulators. After several consultations, the Drone Economy Workgroup was established by parties and has developed position papers on three workstreams:

  • Drone Industry SMME Incubation and Licensing
  • Drone Industry Development and
  • Drone Industry Data and regulatory environment.

The Drone Council SA has a database of both established, new entrants and new licencees.
