[Aviation Today 09-11-2015] Skyward has introduced an information management solution for commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) operators. The cloud-based solution integrates a drone airspace map with flight planning tools and a digital system of record, supported by a team of regulatory and operational experts.
“In the last year, I’ve seen the commercial drone market evolve rapidly, with over 1,400 FAA grants to date. Skyward gives those operators comprehensive tools to access the sky and meet their business objectives. Skyward is committed to powering the next generation of aviation,” said Jonathan Evans, Skyward CEO.
The solution includes a drone airspace map that simplifies complex aviation rules to show operators where to fly; flight planning and logging, configured for specific requirements; and a digital system of record manages personnel, drones, and equipment, among others.
