About

Urban Flyers first began their venture into drone technology in 2017 at a time when there was a huge demand for unique projects targeting the youth in the local community.

Our Story

A team of young people and their youth worker discovered a gap in the sciences and technology, and became fascinated with the fundamentals involved in drones - from its electronic components, to its science and robotics.

What started off as a small pilot, rapidly developed into a community organisation determined and passionate about helping others to access, learn and create with drone technologies - not only for fun, but also for education, employment, volunteering and entrepreneurship opportunities.

Today Urban Flyers has expanded to offer a wide range of services and work with the education sector, youth and public services, community groups, charities, local councils and businesses across London and the UK.

Our Mission

The ethos at Urban Flyers is to aim for the stars! 

Our mission is to give as many young people as possible a level playing field in the world of tech; one that is equal to what their more fortunate counterparts have access to. We therefore support children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (whether it be due to ethnicity, race, religion, gender, economical background) to access innovative technology and educational STEM activities alongside being able to explore jobs, training and career options. We want to create pathways into technology, STEM and aviation for more young black people and females - two groups seriously underrepresented within the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math industries.

Although our work focuses mainly on the younger generation, our aim is to alleviate digital exclusion and digital poverty amongst both children and adults by bridging intergenerational gaps through community projects.
