Cargo drone airline Dronamics has strengthened its position in the Asia Pacific region with the appointment of Gavin Gomes as general manager of its Australia operations.

The appointment, effective August 1, also sees Gomes become a member of the senior management team.

Gomes’ career includes positions at start-ups, private companies, listed entities and global multinationals such as Canon, Australia Post, Telstra, and IBM. A certified pilot, he currently also serves as a non-executive director of Royal Victorian Aero Club and CM Pacific.

“Dronamics’ commitment to transforming the future of cargo delivery through drone technology is both inspiring and groundbreaking,” Gomes said. “I look forward to leading a team of dedicated professionals and collaborating with stakeholders to drive Dronamics’ growth and contribute to the advancement of the Australian logistics and aviation industry.”

Dronamics is working with Australian aerospace composite business Quickstep Holdings to scale up its fleet amid rising demand. Industries that stand to benefit from long-range, high-payload cargo drone operations include perishables, mail, pharmaceuticals, e-commerce and mining.

Svilen Rangelov, co-founder and chief executive of Dronamics, said: “Australia has demonstrated an enormous appetite for what Dronamics can offer – faster, more affordable, lower emissions freight, connecting underserved and remote communities and businesses through cargo drone logistics. We are committed to serving the needs of the local market and we are thrilled to have Gavin’s experience and expertise to support that.”

Dronamics’ flagship Black Swan cargo drone is able to carry 350 kg over a distance of up to 2,500 km.
