DronePort Network

Bringing together communities, thought leaders and companies to unlock economic prosperity and create jobs in the emerging Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry.

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.
