Ivet Arabadjieva

Ivet is a core member of the innovative team at DRONAMICS, a leading unmanned cargo aircraft developer and operator. They are setting up same-day nationwide logistics networks, using their extremely fuel-efficient UAVs, aiming to democratize aviation by making it more affordable and within the reach of remote and rural communities.
Decades of growing urbanization have forced the clustering of economic opportunities in just a handful of centers of commerce in each country and have further increased inequality. Ivet’s passion is to turn this around and improve communities which are less served by the existing infrastructure. With a cargo capacity of 350 kg and a range of 2,500 km, the DRONAMICS Black Swan provides prompt temperature controlled deliveries on demand suitable for medical supplies and pharmaceuticals.
In April 2019, Ivet won the IATA Drone Innovation Award by designing a system for e-commerce drone delivery in Switzerland leveraging DRONAMICS technology to dramatically speed up deliveries in the Alps, where logistics has traditionally been complicated due to geography. Ivet is a graduate of Bournemouth University and was previously in Revenue Management and Analysis at Thomas Cook Airlines.
