Robotic Skies Inc., a commercial drone maintenance and repair services company, has moved its headquarters from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Salt Lake City. The facility centralizes company operations and advances its service capabilities, including onboarding, training and logistics support for marketplace partners, the company said. In addition, the location provides a testbed environment to optimize new drone maintenance solutions for deployment through the Robotic Skies Service Center network.
“We’re excited about the expanded capacity our new facility provides to grow our service offerings with logistics, assembly and depot-based fleet maintenance for UAS (unmanned aircraft systems). It is also our primary venue to host in-person workshops and live remote training and support for our OEM and service center network partners,” said Brad Hayden, founder and CEO of Robotic Skies. “We work with our marketplace partners to standardize factory-approved training and documentation on how to assemble, inspect, maintain and repair professional-grade UAS. Establishing this centralized onboarding facility is key to our strategy for consistently replicating these processes throughout our global service network and providing a safe and reliable customer experience.”
Hayden said the FAA forecasts hundreds of thousands of professional-grade commercial drones in operation by 2025. Tapping into the existing aviation maintenance infrastructure accelerates industry readiness for the support needs of a fleet this size and Robotic Skies is the only organization addressing this at a global level, he said.
Robotic Skies serves the commercial drone industry with maintenance, inspection and repair services through its network of over 225 quality-controlled service centers across 50 countries.
