What is a droneport?
A business opportunity is rapidly developing in the UAS industry. Companies needing to operate fleets of drones benefit by having a facility to handle logistical needs, airspace to fly drones safely and partners with essential services.
The FAA expects over 450,000 and as many as 717,000 commercial grade drones will be in service by 2022.
Droneports will serve as nodes for commercial drone operations in a region. They provide the necessary infrastructure, flight navigation system, permissions for flight and trained personnel.
Discover how the UAS Cluster Initiative
and DronePort Network
are working with communities to create jobs and economic opportunity in the UAS industry by attending a special DronePort Seminar, a co-located event on Day 1 of the UAS Tech Forum, Salina, KS.
In the seminar, you will learn how droneports are becoming epicenters for UAS activities by serving as nodes for testing, training and commercial drone operations by obtaining permissions for flight. These facilities are also providing housing, maintenance, fueling, piloting of fleets and more.
