2017: Hylio + GOPATO

By early 2017, the Hylio H2000 Delivery Drone was ready for action. The U.S. regulatory climate at the time was prohibiting, so Hylio formed a partnership with GoPato in Costa Rica and began conducting the world’s first, real, on-demand drone delivery services with permission from the Costa Rican Aviation Authorities.

With their partners, Hylio completed hundreds of BVLOS (beyond-line-of-sight) to paying customers’ driveways, backyards, and patios in San Jose and the surrounding urban area. AmeliaRueda, La Republica, Repretel, El Financiero, Teletica  Hylio’s success in Costa Rica spawned additional projects with partners in Ghana and Thailand, which continue today.

2018: Hylio + DRONEX

In Q1 of 2018, Hylio partnered with Drone X, a crop-spraying service provider located in El Salvador. Hylio drew from its wealth of UAV experience to create a leading-edge drone platform for the purpose of precise, aerial applications of liquid agrochemicals. Drone X, wielding Hylio’s technology, was able to quickly grow to become the top drone spraying service provider in El Salvador.

After farmers and landowners experienced the value of precision UAV crop spraying, demand skyrocketed in the entire Central American region. Hylio acquired Drone X which was re-branded to “Hylio S.V.” in Q4 of 2018. Hylio then began aggressively expanding their agricultural operations.
