Flyability, the confined-space drone specialist, is hosting an event with their partner HiTechdrone on 17 July 2023 in Riyadh to bring their indoor drones closer to the mining, oil and gas and infrastructural industries in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Flyability is a cage-drone manufacturer headquartered in Switzerland and began their partnership with HiTechdrone, part of Almaroof’s group, earlier this year. The event will include a product demonstration of Flyability’s latest drone, Elios 3, along with hands-on testing and user testimonials. 

The Elios 3 is a collision-proof drone inside a cage tailored for drone inspections in confined spaces. The patented shock-proof cage is 48 cm wide and 38 cm high and protects the Elios 3 when in confined spaces. The drone uses both visual cameras and LiDAR scanning to gather data as well as guide the drone pilot when it is out of the line of sight. The outputs of the Elios 3 can be used for visual inspections or to create highly accurate 3D models. In addition, the Elios 3 is modular, allowing different payloads to be mounted according to the mission goals. The Elios 3 presents three key benefits regarding safety, reducing inspection times, and saving money. The drone can access areas such as underground pipelines or mines, culverts, and the interiors of assets like oil tanks. It has proven use cases in mines, cement production, and infrastructure amongst others. 

Flyability’s area manager for the Middle East, Fabio Fata, said, “This event presents an exciting opportunity to expand our presence in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with our partners HiTechdrone. We want to share our technology with a range of industries and professionals who can benefit from integrating the Elios 3 in their workflows. We want to make industrial work safer by putting drones in confined spaces, rather than people.”

The Elios 3 event hosted by Flyability and HiTechdrone will take place in Riyadh on 17 July from 7.00 to 16.00, with a lunch break. Attendance is confirmed via an email form. Attendees will see an overview of the Elios 3 and its features before a live flight demonstration and the chance for hands-on testing of the drone. There will then be a data processing demonstration along with a user testimonial from a current Elios 3 user. Finally, the day will end with an interactive Q&A session for attendees to ask personal questions about the Elios 3 and rental or purchase options in Saudi Arabia. 

The Elios 3 discovery event is free to attend on condition of registration and open to all industrial professionals interested in implementing confined-space drones on their site. To register, go to
