Dedicated to Keeping You Flying

The Airdata UAV Story

We’re Passionate About Flight Data

Founded in 2015, Airdata UAV was initially built to provide crash-prevention information and give pilots much broader data than typically captured in a logbook. Today we provide a comprehensive drone fleet management operation platform, helping tens of thousands of small-to-large drone fleet operators in nearly 200 countries around the world.

We are a committed team of drone enthusiasts with a mission to help keep your aircraft 'airworthy' by analyzing, identifying, and predicting critical failures and optimizing flight performance.

Data nerds at heart, we have extensive experience building software for virtualizing systems in the cloud, automating data centers, and in designing advanced analytics. Our California-based team has background in military UAV projects and collective experience from leading technology companies like Intel, Citrix, Oracle, Splunk, Amdocs, Hyperion and Sun Microsystems.
