Robotic Skies has received a new round of investment funding that will enable the company to continue to grow its drone support services and further develop its technology. The investment round is being led by Thayer Ventures, with contributions from existing investors Boeing HorizonX Global Ventures, Cerracap Ventures, Kickstart Seed Fund, Sun Mountain Capital, and new investors Side X Side Management.
Combining expertise in drones with maintenance methodology drawn from traditional aviation, Robotic Skies provides enterprise UAS (unmanned aerial systems) fleet operators with local, professional-grade scalable services through its global network of repair centres. This network, which is uniquely positioned to support the growing Advanced Air Mobility industry, currently consists of more than 200 independently owned and operated aviation repair stations.
Brad Hayden, Robotic Skies CEO and Founder, commented: “With this funding, we will continue to develop our marketplace, connecting UAS operators with the highly qualified and local technicians they demand through our global network of certified service centers. Industry regulations continue to develop and require certified technicians to maintain commercial UAS performing complex operations.”
Mark Farrell, Partner at Thayer Ventures, stated: “We are excited to further our investment in the emerging air mobility market. Innovators like Robotic Skies have the power to disrupt and advance the aerospace industry with new business models supporting next-generation aircraft technology.”
