Drone Sky Shows: A dazzling display in the night sky

Drone Sky Shows: A dazzling display in the night sky 

Drone light shows have become increasingly popular and accessible in recent years. Drone technology is no longer limited to large events such as the Olympics, drone light displays are now featured regularly on special occasions and holidays in metropolitan cities across Australia.

What is a drone light show? 

A drone light show is a coordinated display of movement and light, created by a fleet of drones equipped with LED lights. It can be described as a combination of advanced technology, programming, and choreography that allows a fleet of drones to perform a synchronised and visually impressive performance of light and movement.

What can a drone light show be used for? 

Drone displays are gaining popularity and being used for a variety of purposes, including entertainment, marketing, and advertising. They can be customised to include specific themes, colours, patterns, and branding elements, making them a versatile and eye-catching form of entertainment. Whether drone light shows are performed at festivals, concerts, sports events, product launches, or weddings, they are sure to capture the audience’s attention and create lasting memories.

How does a drone light show work?  

A drone light show is a synchronized aerial performance using a swarm of drones fitted with LED lights, controlled by a central command centre and chief drone pilot. The drones fly in choreographed patterns, creating an awe-inspiring visual display.

To execute the light show, the operator or a computer system inputs commands for the drones’ movement, lighting, and colour changes, which the drones’ onboard navigation system follows and performs.

The number of drones used in a light show varies, from a small group to hundreds or thousands, depending on the scale and complexity of the performance. Each drone is equipped with sensors and technology that enables them to communicate with each other and with the central command centre, ensuring coordinated and secure flight.

What is the future of drone light shows? 

In the future, drone light shows will likely continue to evolve and become even more sophisticated. Some potential developments in the field may include: 

  • Increased automation and control: As drone technology continues to improve, likely, the automation and control systems used to manage large numbers of drones in a light show will become more advanced and reliable. This could allow for more complex and dynamic displays 
  • Improved durability and reliability: Currently, drone light shows are limited by the durability and reliability of the drones themselves. In the future, drones may be developed specifically for use in light shows that can withstand the rigours of performing in challenging environments. 
  • Enhanced visual effects: With the advent of new LED technology and other advances in lighting, the visual effects produced by drone light shows may become even more impressive and varied. 
  • Wider adoption: As drone technology becomes more widespread and accessible, drone light shows will likely become more popular and more widely used in a variety of settings, including live events, corporate events and other public gatherings.  
  • Replace fireworks: Drones may likely replace fireworks, given they are better for the environment, reusable, pollution free, quieter and safer, with no harmful effects on the health of humans and animals. Moreover, they are customisable and anything you can create using 3D software can be executed in a drone light show. 


Overall, the future of drone light shows looks bright, with many exciting possibilities for innovation and expansion in the field.
