Robotic Skies, Inc, the first and only maintenance marketplace for high-end commercial and industrial drones, announced an investment from Japan-based DRONE FUND to support continued growth and services development.
The DRONE FUND III Investment Limited Partnership, managed by Kotaro Chiba and Soki Ohmae in Tokyo, Japan, invested in Robotic Skies based on its innovative and scalable business model.
The Robotic Skies business model builds on the direction of commercial drone policy and legislation in the United States, and other Civil Aviation Authorities worldwide, towards requirements for certified maintenance solutions that ensure safety and ongoing airworthiness of unmanned aircraft.
The company’s robust network of repair stations has also positioned Robotic Skies well to respond to the forecast volume of commercial drones and advanced air mobility aircraft that will require certified maintenance support.
“With the investment from DRONE FUND, we will continue to develop our marketplace, providing drone operators around the world with professional maintenance and repair services through our network of highly trained aviation technicians,” said Brad Hayden, Robotic Skies CEO and Founder. “As we have anticipated for years, industry regulations continue to advance towards requirements for certified technicians to maintain commercial drones performing complex operations like autonomous package delivery.”
The Robotic Skies field support infrastructure includes over 225 independently owned and operated FAA Part 145 repair stations to serve customers across 49 countries.
In January 2021, Robotic Skies’ CEO Brad Hayden was appointed to the FAA Drone Advisory Committee to help develop strategy for the safe integration of drones into the National Airspace System.
