With a growing manufacturing and aerospace industry and low production costs, the drone business is booming in Mexico and fast becoming a testing ground for development. Drones are being used to help create maps, make videos and maybe deliver products in one day.
In just two years, they own a fleet of drones to perform a number of jobs. Their biggest contract involves construction companies.“Drones are so flexible and so easy to move around and find spots that you couldn’t see normally,” Rubio said.
“We got to film once for a company where the roofs were very old, so we went in and took some pictures of the roofs instead of someone climbing up and risk (hurting) themselves.
“We just flew it around, and we were able to tell them they have a crack there, you have to paint there.”
But there’s also less-legal uses for drones in Mexico.
Drug dealers are using drones to transport drugs across the border. There have also been reports of drones interfering with low-flying aircraft. “The drone industry is growing very rapidly. Lots of people have access to buying them and like everything in life, you have people who use them in a good way and some in a bad way, so it puts everyone at risk,” Rubio said.
Last year, Mexico passed laws to regulate the drone industry to bring it more in line with the United States.
