March 2018

We have had access to a UAV with LiDAR ( a “laser scanner drone”), one of the first of its kind to be in the hands of a private service provider in the wider Tyrolean region.

Winter 2017-2018

In our most successful year so far, we’ve completed 50 projects across the Alps. From small quarries of a few hectares, to entire ski resorts with many square kilometres to be flown, our portfolio is incredibly varied. All in all we have generated point clouds, terrain models and orthophotos totalling over 6,000 hectares for our clients. In addition to pure flyovers, we have also provided complete surveys in conjunction with partner companies.

These diverse experiences, featuring convincing results and a undisputed knack for difficult and large flyovers, have really helped spread the word about our company far beyond our region.

February 2016

We have completely devoted ourselves to the delivery of services to customers in technical areas. Beyond this, we also offer advice on purchasing and training in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles.

The year 2015

Alto Drones GmbH established itself not only as a distributor of high quality professional aerial vehicles, but also a company which can support customers in all the related technical and legal matters, in large thanks to the experience and knowhow of the founders.

December 2014

The South Tyrolean company was officially designated as a provider of “unmanned remote-controlled flight systems” by the Italian aerial authorities. From then on, the company could fly its own operations using its two MULTIROTOR G4 Eagles, and in doing so become the region’s first provider to use a fleet of multiple certified vehicles.

Summer 2014

Alto Drones was founded by Alex Fabbro and Thomas Fontana. The company first imported MULTIROTOR G4 UAVs from German producer “” with an eye to their professional implementation in the arenas of surveying, industry and film.
