Our Team

Jono Heaney

Jono Heaney

Position Design Lead

About: CrashBOX Drones is the brainchild of Jono Heaney, a 35 year old designer and ex-helicopter pilot based in Cape Town. After losing his pilot medical on the cusp of qualifying as a commercial helicopter pilot, he therapeutically, and somewhat obsessively started to dabble in electronics and drone design. Drawing on his extensive background in animation and 3D design, a lifelong passion for aviation and a more recent fascination with 3D printing, he found himself uniquely positioned to create something completely new.
