Accelerating your Part 107 Business with Skydio

Thursday, December 3, 2020 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM Eastern Time

Being a Part 107 pilot shouldn’t be so hard. With today’s manual drones, pilots have found themselves shackled to solutions that are hard to fly and easy to crash. Manual drones present safety risks and limit earning potential. That is why Part 107 pilots across the country are rapidly adopting a new generation of smart AI-powered drones that reduce operational cost, capture more accurate data more efficiently and ultimately, produce greater revenue. Skydio’s AI-driven collision avoidance and autonomy functionality makes existing jobs safer, meaning that growing Part 107 operations can field new pilots without extended practice time and ramp-up periods. It also enables new operations at low altitude, even around obstacles, so that pilots can perform a greater range of missions for their end customers.  

Join us for a discussion of Skydio’s solutions that will help your Part 107 operation reach new heights. We will be featuring two Part 107 certified business operators and Skydio customers who will speak about the ways that Skydio autonomy is helping them expand their company with more confidence and into new use cases. 

This webinar will cover: 

  • Skydio’s solutions for Part 107 pilots
  • Roundtable discussion with two of Skydio’s Part 107 customers
