Our Story

Founded in 2014 by then students Robert Atwood and Richard Sullivan, Hummingbird Drones focused on the untapped potential of drones to affect the way wildfire suppression efforts were conducted. After a year of product development and beta testing, Hummingbird Drones was engaged for a trial by the BC Wildfire Service. Since then, Hummingbird expanded its offering across western Canada, providing data and intelligence to support a variety of fireline operations.
