Why choose Dronedesk?

I believe Dronedesk is the very best business admin and flight planning application available to professional drone operators.

It helps maximise the efficiency of operations, helps ensure the safety of flights and dramatically simplifies compliance.

Don't believe me? Well, I wanted to be sure my claims are justified so I commissioned a survey of features.

The survey stacked Dronedesk up against three of the other leading drone business admin and flight planning applications available on the market.

I think the results speak for themselves. Scroll to the bottom of the table to see the scores and price comparison.
