Robotic Skies to Provide Maintenance for Humanitarian & Medical Drones

By Mike Ball / 20 May 2021

Robotic Skies drone repair and servicingRobotic Skies has partnered with Dutch UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) manufacturer Avy – Drones for Good to develop a field support program for Avy’s growing fleet of long-range autonomous aircraft. Avy’s drone fleet performs critical medical and humanitarian flight operations around the world.

Avy’s flagship platform, the Aera, is a fixed-wing drone with eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) capability that can operate beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). The company’s innovative zero-emission aircraft technology has transformed transport methods for first response operations, medical deliveries, nature conservation, and search and rescue.

Robotic Skies provides the commercial drone industry with maintenance, inspection, and repair services through its network of over 225 quality-controlled Service Centers across 50 countries. The company’s proprietary system combines expertise in unmanned aircraft systems and traditional aviation maintenance methodology to provide affordable turnkey field service programs.

Brad Hayden, Founder and CEO of Robotic Skies, commented: “Drone systems like the Avy Aera are built to withstand harsh environments and demanding missions. However, even these high-performing systems still need proper preventive care, and sometimes unexpected repair work, to keep them operating their best. We are thrilled to work with Avy and to provide them with the peace of mind that they will have the fast, professional, and high-quality support they need, anywhere in the world they operate.”

Patrique Zaman, Founder and CEO of Avy, said: “Having Robotic Skies as a trusted maintenance partner means we can focus our energy on developing and safely deploying our drone technology. As we look towards expanding our operations, it makes sense for us to build industry partnerships that can help us quickly advance our growth initiatives on a global scale. Robotic Skies has the added benefit of meeting any maintenance-related regulatory requirements.”
