Learn More About Who We Are, And What We Do at DroneAcharya…

DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations was founded in 2017 by Prateek Srivastava as a Drone (UAV) startup in Karnataka under KEONICS (Karnataka State Electronics Development Corporation Limited).

By securing well noted projects at the end of 2020, we began operations out of office in Pune, because working from home had never been our cup of tea. With new joinees and a bigger office, we started our journey of becoming the training hub for Drones in India by designing Industrial Application based Drone Courses. The aim for DroneAcharya had always been to believe in training the next generation for becoming extremely skilled in the UAV + Geospatial industry.
