Company Background 

Founded in 2011 and with customers all over the world, Event 38 designs and manufactures small and medium sized unmanned aircraft for mapping, inspection and security applications. We build several models of standardized aircraft with multiple mapping and inspection payloads available from the factory as standard which can be shipped in just a few days. These models can be customized to suit any payload desired, and where appropriate a fully custom airframe can be built.

We build, test and ship all of our drones from our factory in Akron, Ohio. Our engineers have aerospace, electrical and software engineering backgrounds and years of experience working in the ArduPilot/PX4 ecosystem.

What makes us different?

Key factors for commercial drone use are payload capacity, operator hands-on time (time in air/time between flights ratio), data handling and analysis and cost. We differentiate ourselves by providing high endurance, low cost, easy to use, payload agnostic options for small businesses. Our E384 fixed wing drone is a true workhorse. It has been proven in thousands of hours of flight in hundreds of applications to be reliable, safe, and economical to use. It can fly 1,000 acres in 100 minutes at 5cm resolution completely autonomously at a cost of pennies per acre. Our custom sensors have industry leading optical filters used in many applications. Most of our competitors’ drones cost 5-20 times more than ours, have shorter flight times, and carry smaller payloads. Once you compare features and costs, we are certain that you can’t go wrong by choosing our drones for your business applications. .
