DroneDeploy, a cloud-based drone software platform, is offering a flight logs solution with its partners Airnest, Drone Complier, DroneLogbook, Healthy Drones, Kitty Hawk, NVDrones and Skyward.

The logs contain highly detailed GPS positioning, drone battery life, camera activity and more, providing a vital record of flight activities often required for regulatory compliance and insurance.

Direct access to actual flight logs eliminates the tedious, manual data entry process for capturing flight data and enables drone operators to easily track and monitor their drone flights for regulatory compliance, insurance and fleet maintenance.

DroneDeploy’s more than 10,000 users in 130 countries can access logs of their DroneDeploy mapping flights. Leveraging their actual flight log data with DroneDeploy’s partners enables businesses to:

  • Automate logging and recording of all drone flights for compliance and insurance purposes
  • Monitor equipment performance to recommend preventative maintenance
  • Explore trends in flight characteristics to define best practices

“Many large companies and enterprises are looking to scale their drone program and do it efficiently,” says Jonathan Evans, CEO of Skyward. “Now, with access to DroneDeploy flight logs, Skyward customers can manage flight information across their entire fleet.”

Other solutions on the market today typically require a high cost investment and lock businesses into working with a single drone software vendor, DroneDeploy says. DroneDeploy’s offering enables businesses to select what works best for them from a selection of industry leading drone compliance, insurance and fleet management partners. This highlights DroneDeploy’s approach to addressing the needs of the commercial drone market by developing a best-of-breed offering with ecosystem partners.
