Dronedesk has all the features you need to run your drone operation

Dronedesk will save you hours of admin

We know from our own experience that the admin involved in safe flight planning can be a big burden. Hunting around the internet for all the data you need can take hours; finding airuser's contact information, ATC contacts, checking weather sites and NOTAMs - the list goes on and on.

How would you like to plan your jobs in half the time?

Our user survey of professional drone operators has shown that a typical Dronedesk user saves 55 minutes for every flight they plan in Dronedesk versus the time taken previously.

The calculator assumes the UK median wage and just 30 weeks of work a year to account for things like the British weather, sick and leave.

Use the sliders below to select your numbers of pilots and weekly flights to calculate your potential savings.

 

 

It's not just about the time you'll save though...

Everything you need

Fed up of jumping from website to website to get all the data you need to plan your flights?

Dronedesk includes everything - and we mean everything - you need to manage your clients and plan your flights. It's all built into a beautifully simple web application that you can access from any device anywhere you have a connection.

We use industry standard datasources to make sure that you can plan your flight secure in the knowledge that you have the latest available data about the weather, NOTAMs, air and ground hazards for your flight area.

Boss your flight logs

Dronedesk gives you three great options for flight logging:

  • Enter your flight details manually
  • Export logs from AirData and upload them right into Dronedesk
  • Or, have Dronedesk auto-sync with Airdata. Our algorithm will match each flight to jobs in the system, all you need to do is verify the link.

Whichever you chose, your CAA-compliant log report will be instantly exportable to PDF or Excel.

Job management is a breeze

Manage every aspect of a job in a single screen.

You get everything you need including; survey forms, six checklists, a comprehensive risk assessment which complies with CAA guidelines, air user contacts for everyone from ATCs to glider clubs, current NOTAMs, hourly weather forecasts, a site planning map (including ground and air hazard data from Altitude Angel UTM - the exact same data you get in the NATs and DJI apps!) and flight logging.

You can export a fully branded job pack too which you can store or send to your clients.

Create site plans in seconds

Creating a site plan is the work of moments; select your map view (you have a choice of three satelite and one street view), draw out your proposed flight area, drop your Take-Off and Landing Point pin and you get an instant view of your 30m, 50m 150m and 500m operationally relevant radii.

Drop pins to show pilot and marshall/observer positions and even pinpoint potential hazards and notifiable properties/people.

Everything's saved as you go and you can print your plan either on its own or as part of a full job pack.

Secure by design

The security and privacy of your, and your client's, data is critically important to us. We've implemented leading-edge security meausures from the ground up to ensure that only the right people, and approved devices, can access your company's information in Dronedesk.

As standard, Dronedesk encrypts PII (Personal Identification Information) data at rest, including but not limited to; passwords, email addresses, postal addresses, names and company names. The added benefit of this approach is that no malicious actor, or indeed any Dronedesk employee, will have access to an unencrypted view of your, or your client's, sensitive data.
