Enriching work efficiency and rate of production, reducing production costs and workload, refining services and customer relations, maintaining security on a vast scale are a few of the top reasons why the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) industry is promising.

To gain an insight, in consequence of the continuous population growth- Egypt leads its way towards sustainability through the investment in its vast territories. In a world free of UAVs technologies, quality assurance imposes the existence of a complex infrastructure, powered by thousands of employees who will be in charge of observing these landscapes, collecting data, examining the overall conditions, predicting potential crisis and acting upon which - if any occurred. On such a large-scale project, a lot of workload efforts and money must be invested.

In contrast, the use of networks of drones, equipped with high-tech planting systems (crop monitoring, spraying, assessment, field analysis, and crisis management), will increase crop yields and reduce input costs. According to Informa Economics and Measure, UAVs enhance saving on average $11.58 per acre, which is equivalent to an estimate of $1.3 billion annually [1]. Not only agriculture, but also it could benefit the military and commercial use. UAVs are widely used in the field of surveillance and military airstrikes. On the other hand, a heavy-lift UAV provides the ability to transport goods, hospital equipment and living organs for transplanting operations in distant places.

Drones provide safer, faster, and cheaper method for performing a variety of missions. Drones can easily access difficult-to-reach areas while eliminating the need for a human to go there using the risky mechanical tools. Moreover, avoiding traffic by flying through air can save a lot of time and effort. Furthermore, utilizing electric power in transportation is much cheaper and cleaner than most of the traditional vehicles powered by fossil fuels. Also, it can be fabricated using commercial materials that are easy to obtain and have relatively very low price. Most of the plane is made of wood which is affordable by most people and can be easily shaped using simple cutting and gluing tools. Hence, the purpose of this project is to introduce such a promising industry - UAVs industry, in Egypt by providing an innovative, affordable, and heavy-lifting UAV to the scientific, military, and industrial fields.

We are introducing a whole new industry which serve various fields. This industry will open doors to thousands of job hunters, and boost the Egyptian economy. According to the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), more than 100,000 new jobs will reportedly open for drone pilots in 2025. At the end of the day, the impact of commercial drones could be $82 billion in the USA, by 2025 [2].
