Today, we were lucky enough to chat with Jessica and Matt from Skyward.io. Skyward is one of the teams working to provide drone pilots everywhere with the ability to obtain instant airspace authorization. As you may know, pilots currently have to wait up to six months in order for their applications to get approval.
In order to help us better understand how they’re revolutionizing the drone industry, Jessica and Matt discuss what Skyward is doing, how they’re doing it and when we can expect instant airspace authorizations to be available to drone pilots everywhere.
Special thanks to Skyward for joining us! Fly safe!
