Are you looking to use drones in your business?
Not sure where to start?

We can help.

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 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.”

– Andrew

“Thanks Louise for a very well-written piece of work. This is probably the best book I’ve ever read on drones…”

– Victor

“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.”

– Stephen



Louise enjoys opportunities to speak formally at industry conferences or to commercial sectors that benefit from the application of drones – especially in connection with precision farming. Recent formal speaking events include:

6th Annual International Conference Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) European Civil RPAS Operations Forum, Paris

Drone Con 2019, Durban 

South African Institute of Civil Engineering, (Pretoria and Amathole Branches) and the Institute of Municipal Engineering South Africa (Border Branch)

Louise also enjoys speaking at more informal gatherings to raise awareness about the value of drones, bust myths, explain the drone regulations in South Africa and promote responsible flying. She has made presentations to Rotarians, the local aviation community and educational institutions.


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

Emerging trends 

Interviews with key players in the industry

The commercial licensing process in South Africa

Becoming a licensing drone pilot
