Skye Air is focused on streamlining drone deliveries as a mainstream logistics solution for healthcare, e-commerce, and other industries

Pierce Aerospace and Skye Air Mobility announced their partnership at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas  to bring Pierce Aerospace’s Flight Portal ID UAS Technologies as an integrated Remote ID solution with Skye Air Mobility’s drone delivery platforms and Skye UTM (Skye Air’s proprietary UTM platform) starting in 2023.

“We are very proud to partner with leading Remote ID service provider, Pierce Aerospace, said Ankit Kumar, CEO of Skye Air. The partnership will bring together a combined solution of UTM & RID to the Indian and the US market. Having completed more than 1 million package deliveries, we believe it’s the right time to introduce the solution for enterprises and the government to manage traffic and have real-time UAS tracking through combined solutions. Skye Air is uniquely positioned both as a service provider and user for the combined (UTM + RID) offerings.”

Skye Air Mobility brings drone delivery to India’s healthcare, e-commerce, quick commerce and agri-commodity sectors to build a fast, sustainable, and efficient network to transport everything and anything that a drone can fly. 

Skye Air operates in 10 states across India working with clients like Flipkart, Dunzo, Swiggy, BlueDart DHL, Redcliffe Labs, Aster Healthcare, Cure Foods, Tata 1MG and many others. Skye Air has completed over 2300+ BVLOS flights delivering over 1 million packages covering an aerial distance of 12800+ km. 

Skye Air recently introduced its proprietary UTM platform, Skye UTM which is a cloud-based UAS traffic management system that stitches unmanned air traffic with the manned aviation airspace. The Skye UTM captures more than 255+ parameters of drone movements and stores them into its ‘Blackbox’ which is a published systematic description of the entire flight. The platform offers the first 3-Dimensional view of the drone airspace along with operations and regulations mapping servers which offer the latest airspace status, verified paths, and display real time UAV movements.

“We’re working with the Skye Air team on concepts that will work in India’s rapidly growing drone market,” said Aaron Pierce, CEO of Pierce Aerospace. “Our infrastructure approach to Remote ID aids Skye Air’s growth and integrates their UTM with our Remote ID services that enhance the safety and security of their commercial operations.”
