The most advanced method of material transportation to date
Quickly becoming one of the most invested-in industries of today, delivery by drone has become renowned worldwide for surpassing the same-day delivery craze and delivering goods to consumers in the very same hour. Currently advancing throughout Europe, Skyports, backed by Sky-Drones Technologies, is leading the way.
Skyports is a drone delivery service provider offering cargo deliveries to its customers in the medical, e-commerce and logistics industries. Skyports take care of the drones, technology, regulation and pilots, leaving their customers to benefit from the speed, frequency and integrity benefits that an unmanned drone delivery service can provide.
Skyports in a UK-first is conducting hospital-to-hospital medical drone deliveries to assist the NHS in the battle against COVID-19. Over the course of the project, Skyports is flying essential medical cargo 17kms Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) between two hospitals in the Scottish Highlands.
The two-week trial represents a crucial milestone for unmanned aviation in the UK. Under current rules, drones must always be flown within visual line of sight of the remote pilot. To undertake these flights Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS), the Skyports team has been working closely with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the National Health Service (NHS).
Sky-Drones Cloud software allows the operational team to remain located on the other side of the world. Parameters, flight logs and mission planning are all located in one hub, making ease of access for all involved personnel during mission execution.
Furthermore, as a result of Sky-Drones partnership with Altitude Angel, Skyports will be able to further engage with the initiative towards urban air mobility; Earth and space weather tracking, risk and hazard detection and prevention, and flight plan collision detection and prevention are all factors that will aid Skyports in leveraging the sky to create bigger and better links to people and the environment around them.
