In 2017 the use of drones (or RPAS as they are officially known) in Kenya is to be allowed under strict conditions as posed by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA). Unregistered drones flown without permission can be confiscated. 

Upande has several years of experience in drones and is one of the first parties to be able to offer legal drone services. Our experience includes both fixed wing and rotary drones.

"Upande is well known globally for their cutting edge technological solutions to common problems. They have seamlessly integrated map overlay data on schools, restaurants, banks into our Anza.co.ke real estate platform. Their world class standard is evident in all their work and they don't stop until they have delivered what was envisaged at the onset. I would highly recommend them to anyone keen not to get the best of what is currently available."
