At AirMap, we're helping make unmanned aircraft, or drones, a part of everyday life by building the airspace management systems of the future.
The emergence of small, powerful, and autonomous drones, is transforming society. Drones are being used for agriculture, public safety, aerial photography and cinematography, and soon, package delivery. The next century of aviation innovation is happening at the local level, not across oceans, and it's happening below 500 feet. AirMap is building the infrastructure for this low altitude airspace so innovation can take flight.
On December 17, 1903, when the Wright Brothers first flew at Kitty Hawk, NC, few could have imagined how our huge planet would soon be so intimately connected by airplanes. Today, a new set of connections is developing in the low altitude airspace that has been all but ignored since the Wright Brothers' first flight.
AirMap works collaboratively with industry partners to create the future for drones. We focus exclusively on providing accurate, reliable and trustworthy airspace information so that others in our nascent industry can build amazing vehicles and applications. AirMap services are used by the world's leading drone manufacturers, including DJI and 3DRobotics.
