We are The Drone Bird Company (also known as Clear Flight Solutions BV), world champion in building drone birds. The Drone Bird Company is settled in the high-tech Twente region in The Netherlands — ranked the number four most innovative country in the world. The Drone Bird Company built the first professional flapping-wing robotic bird used for bird control together with the research group Robotics and Mechatronics of the prestigious University of Twente. Our team spent over 30 years of research to develop our drone birds.

In Twente we have a technology base (Space 53) at Twente Airport where our main test facilities are located – a globally unique concept.

We love Technology. We love Birds. We combined them in one solution. We are real professionals: The Drone Bird Company.

The Drone Bird Company pilots providing wildlife management services in an agricultural field.
