For all the simplicity of drones and the ease with which they are rapidly transforming business and society, there is more to their use and introduction into your company than initially appears.
As with any high-tech equipment there are differing specifications of hardware and software to consider and importantly ensure compliance with legal frameworks and safe operational requirements.
Terreco Aviation provides expert guidance helping agribusinesses and civil engineering consultancies gain clarity on the intricacies of commercial drone applications so they can use third party service providers with confidence; or build and operate their own drone capability efficiently, safely and legally.

Louise originates from the UK and moved to South Africa in 2000. She is a licensed commercial drone pilot, environmental specialist, and #1 Amazon bestselling author on the use of drones in agriculture. She has over 28 years’ experience in environmental consulting on major engineering projects in the UK, Europe and across Africa.
She recognises the value of drones in society, whether in terms of providing humanitarian support, improving food security, enhancing disaster management options or promoting effective conservation.
Louise is a member of the AW-Drones Advisory Board for developing new European Safety Standards for civilian drones for the region.
“Louise congrats you have written a really good technical book…in plain language. I like how it reads like a sleeves rolled up chat over a cup of tea on the bonnet of a Jeep out in the field without dumbing down the science, agribusiness or civil aviation laws. Well done.”
“Thanks Louise for a very well-written piece of work. This is probably the best book I’ve ever read on drones…”
“This book was helpful to me and I’m not even a farmer. Louise covers everything that I think would be useful for a farmer just getting her/his feet wet in e-agriculture and even for a veteran smart-farmer….And though Louise is in South Africa, it seems this book carries knowledge that can be useful across the globe.”
Starting in November 2019, Louise’s podcast, ‘Droning on’, is named for the good-natured joking she routinely encounters whenever presenting and talking about drones.
She uses her podcasts to share her passion for drones, raise awareness about the value of drones in society as well as advocating compliance with civil aviation regulations and showcasing responsible and safe professional operations.
Current and forthcoming podcast themes include:
The importance of drones in agriculture
Interviews with key players in the industry
The commercial licensing process in South Africa
Becoming a licensing drone pilot
