Unmanned aircraft systems, also known as drones, are set to revolutionise how we travel and how products reach their final destinations.
Ultimately, this new technology will redefine how we interact with our built environment. It will affect all property asset classes and will have an indiscriminate effect on property owners of developed and greenfield land. Property owners could capitalise on the drone revolution by installing and facilitating drone infrastructure on their land and buildings and through their airspace.
So what opportunities do drones provide for landowners?
