This Business Project was written as part of the Executive MBA at the International Hellenic University. The main purpose is to develop a Business Plan for a start-up company which aims to take advantage of the new innovative aerial services in Greece. Nowadays, we are witnessing the advent of a new era of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) that can autonomously fly in natural and man-made environments. These RPAS, often associated with defense applications, could have a major impact on civilian tasks, including transportation, communication, agriculture, disaster mitigation and environment preservation. To this end, the dissertation uses as a major strategy to reveal and exploit this unique opportunity, through the development of a Business Plan. The research methodology employed lies on a combination of both quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis and market research. Data have been collected from archives, interviews, World Wide Web, participation in conferences and published reports. In order to analyze the business environment and propose realistic and feasible strategies, appropriate business tools, as well as literature regarding the preparation of business plans and the particular industry are considered and implemented.
