Featuring Victoria Unikel
Disruption isn’t easy, but for Victoria Unikel, it’s all in a day’s work. Businesswoman, artist, and activist, Edison Aerospace’s Victoria Unikel wears many different hats in her role as the co-founder and head of marketing behind a company that promises to revolutionize agricultural spray aircraft. Doing the job of manned spray aircraft without the risk to the pilot and costing the operators 45% less money than existing aircraft to operate, Edison Aerospace’s vision of the future of agriculture is greener, computerized and autonomous, doing more with less and feeding more people in the process.
“During my entertainment career and life in general, I always wanted to create something global and innovative, something that would truly be revolutionary and help people. So, when my husband, Gene Avakyan, shared his idea about an electric autonomous full-size agricultural spray aircraft, I immediately told him that we must move forward with it, and we began to brainstorm how to get it into production as soon as possible. Although there are some small drones that are used to spot-spray very limited areas, our aircraft is a true replacement for the manned aircraft used for aerial application today. The first model we will be releasing will be about the size of a Cessna 172 – much bigger than anything people may think of when they hear the word ‘drone’. In fact, this is so much outside the world of typical drones, that we never even use that word. We have already built up an incredible team of professionals from the electrical propulsion and agricultural industries in North Dakota, where we plan to manufacture the aircraft. Beyond Edison’s first spray aircraft, we have several projects planned for the Department of Defense, but I can’t talk about those yet.“
