The drone applications company

About Us

Third Element Aviation is the leading company in designing professional drone applications. Based in Bielefeld, Germany, collectively we have a long history in the drone application business before starting the company in early 2017. Our team combines years of experience in business development, several hundred commercial drone systems manufactured and sold and thousands of hours in piloting experience in virtually all applications, scenarios and parts of the world.

Based on this know-how, Third Element Aviation was founded on the idea to bring complete, drone-based application packages, from initial consulting to after-sales services.
