Skydio sees extensive use in the enterprise and public sectors and leads the industry in autonomous drone technology. This new integration with Skydio Cloud will further improve AirData’s ability to serve customers and their fleets while also providing Skydio customers with a reliable method of tracking and managing their fleets, managing compliance and maintenance, and minimizing risk.

AirData automatically retrieves Skydio 2, Skydio X2, and Skydio 2+ flight data via an API-driven integration, fulfilling compliance requirements, detecting early indications of problems to prevent surprises while also tracking maintenance and providing users with detailed operational reports.
