Sky-Futures has launched Flightdeck, the latest addition to the Expanse software suite for professional drone missions. Flightdeck offers drone operators an integrated cloud-based solution to safely plan and execute commercial drone operations as well as manage pilots, drone equipment and mission information in one place. Compliance and audit tasks for drone operations can now be done quickly, easily and securely in the cloud.
This latest addition to the Expanse suite has been developed out of Sky-Futures’ experience as a leading drone-based industrial inspection service. Sky-Futures is now sharing this expertise with customers; enabling them to deliver safe and professional drone operations. The Sky-Futures operational toolkit is integrated into this easy-to-use application to ensure effective compliance and risk management.
Flightdeck is compatible with all drone types and provides situational awareness about airspace rules, requirements, and temporary restrictions powered by AirMap airspace management platform. Users of DJI drones can also download flight telemetry and visualise it in 3D in the Flight Playback function.
Chris Blackford, COO of Sky-Futures, said, “The Expanse Flightdeck platform is the next tool supporting our clients with an end-to-end solution for their professional drone operations. Flightdeck delivers drone mission planning, complemented with the AirMap airspace management platform.”

The result: more informed operators and safer, more efficient flights.”
