DroneUp LLC has today announced the appointment of Sebastian (Seb) Babiarz as its head of European airspace innovation based in Poland.
Seb was recently COO at Dronehub, the drone-in-a-box provider for automated monitoring and data collection. Before that, he was head of strategic business development at AirMap, which DroneUp acquired in December 2021. Seb also previously held the role of Head of AMS Drone Business at Nokia, where he created and grew business opportunities for drone services for mobile networks globally.
According to a company press release, DroneUp is now looking to Europe as the next phase of growth and opportunity.
“With a high appetite for drone services, the European market is ripe for further development and advancement of commercial drone services to serve residents and businesses,” said the company press release. “Currently, there is a keen focus on commercial drone regulations across Europe, while in the North American market, the focus has been on scaling operations. DroneUp, through its recent expansion with Walmart, has been leading this charge in the United States by providing delivery to 4 million U.S. households while also playing a significant role in the FAA’s Beyond Visual Line of Site (BVLOS) Aviation Rulemaking Committee.”
