Aspira is innovating to deliver drones and coatings for good – creating groundbreaking technologies that save costs, reduce risk, improve accessibility and safeguard the environment.
Do you want to make the most of our exciting new technology?
Drones & Coatings for Good
Our innovative Aspiracopter combines anti-collision and surface tracking software to deliver safe, stable flight within 2 meters of buildings and structures to apply specialist coatings with ease. Our spray systems quickly and effectively apply our portfolio of coatings to surfaces and facia following methods validated by the Civil Aviation Authority. We believe we have unprecedented CAA sign-off and unparallel access to coatings for industry – ensuring Aspira is your perfect partner for innovation.
In short, our proprietary system is here to save you time, reduce your risk, help you realise cost-efficiencies and deliver against your sustainability goals
What our customers say about us
Weatherproofing my barn has visibly improved the protection against the elements, rain running off where it previously soaked in to the brickwork which must help reduce heat loss. Application by the drone was quick, stable and effective where otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to easily gain access.
– Private client, Manchester
The results speak for themselves, just look at our degreener case study or the work we have done to improve wind turbine efficacy with ORE Catapult. We are quicker, cost effective and more sensitive than any traditional method

Unique Regulatory Approval
Aspira is approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to fly drones close to buildings and apply coatings, which we believe to be unprecedented in our industry. Health and safety is incredibly important to Aspira and we take care to comply with all relevant guidelines, permissions and certifications – while helping licensees to do the same through our training, procedures and systems. Overall, this means Aspira is uniquely positioned to deliver the benefits of innovation.
The Aspiracopter is a bespoke drone system capable of applying functional coatings to surfaces at height with superior control, accuracy and quality. Our drone (or UAV) is a bespoke build, heavy lift octocopter, it has a waterproof system protecting the onboard flight control technology and importantly incorporates an additional safety requirement, whereby the drone is a tethered system.
Our flight control is a unique, intelligent system that maintains distance from the target and controls flight level and stability during spraying operations.
We use a multi-lance spray system which has a unique capability to spray accurately both horizontally and downwards, using both a ground fed and onboard spray systems to ensure complete coverage.
On a Mission
Aspira believes that drones and coatings can improve society in many ways. That is why we are on a mission to deliver change, enabling organisations to work more safely, save time and effort, cut costs and deliver against sustainability targets
Perhaps most importantly we want others to benefit too, so make it our job to enable progress through our licensing agreement, training services and maintenance support.
Change and Innovation
Cost and Efficiency
R&D is the lifeblood of Aspira, enabling the groundbreaking drone, operational safety and spraying innovations at the heart of our business. Since 2017, we have invested substantially in our proprietary technology to design and develop a unique drone, specialist spraying system and flight technology – all underpinned by comprehensive operating processes and procedures. We are excited by our innovations and proud to have secured unpresented Civil Aviation Authority approvals.
