Robotic Skies, Avy join hands to develop field support programme
Robotic Skies, a global drone maintenance service provider, and Avy, a Dutch drone manufacturer, have announced a partnership to develop a field support programme for Avy’s growing fleet of long-range autonomous lifesaving aircraft. The programme aims to keep the Avy fleet optimal for critical medical and humanitarian flight operations around the world.
Avy is a fast-growing startup based in Amsterdam and has been developing ‘drone tech for good’ since 2016. The company’s flagship aircraft, the Aera, is an autonomous fixed-wing drone with eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) capability designed for long-range, beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) missions.
Avy pioneers in innovative zero-emission aircraft technology that transform transport methods for first response operations, medical deliveries, nature conservation, and search and rescue.
“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,” said Brad Hayden, founder and CEO of Robotic Skies.
Robotic Skies serves the commercial drone industry with maintenance, inspection, and repair services through its network of over 225 quality-controlled service centres across 50 countries. Robotic Skies’ proprietary system combines expertise in unmanned aircraft systems and traditional aviation maintenance methodology to provide affordable turnkey field service programs.
“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,” said Patrique Zaman, founder & CEO of Avy.
