Flying Lion, Inc. - Police Drones


Flying Lion, Inc. (FLI) is full service sUAS provider for public safety and law enforcement agencies. Currently, we have been running a beta test with Redondo Beach Police Department. During this beta test, we have performed 100+ Air Support hours in various law enforcement scenarios. In the future, we hope to have additional testing with other South Bay public safety agencies.

Most recently we provided Air Support for the Golden Globes Awards. During this operation we were able to secure future demos of FLI capabilities with the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, Secret Services, and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. All agencies had a very high level of interest in the services that FLI provides.

FLI is capable of providing on-demand sUAS service, equipment sales, training and consulting services.
