Our Mission & Vision

DroneUp matches missions with small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) pilots and provides enterprising Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM). Our DroneUp mission match pilot management platform – locates, qualifies, and deploys single pilot or multi-pilot crews according to our client requirements. We deliver on-demand services to commercial, government, and military organizations and address critical airspace safety oversight. DroneUp is committed to providing a comprehensive network of pilots while maintaining a steadfast commitment to safety and responsible operations.

Meet our Leadership Team.

It is the responsibility of the community to be educated operators and to maintain and demonstrate contemporary knowledge of safe UAS operation procedures and laws.

Federal, state, local, and FAA regulations are not just guidance or suggestions, they are laws and thereby govern the behavior of our community.

It is the responsibility of all community members to support, inform, and protect the other members of this community.

Guiding Principles

The future success of the unmanned systems industry is directly impacted by how professionally our community operates its vehicles and systems. The fear, uncertainty, and doubt that exists among government agencies and communities toward unmanned systems will gradually diminish only if we maintain the highest ethical and operational standards. Therefore:

  • We will utilize our unmanned vehicles: (a) For profit ONLY when appropriate; (b) To assist our communities WHENEVER needed.
  • Federal, state, local, and FAA regulations are not just guidance or suggestions, they are laws that govern our behavior.

We hold ourselves and others within our community to these standards.

Our Role

DroneUp is committed to helping the FAA improve sUAS flight safety through ever-evolving course materials, updated examinations, and safe training missions. We will educate ourselves and our pilots. We will always strive to ensure that our mission aligns with, and promotes, the desired outcomes of the FAA, public safety personnel, and the unmanned systems community.

We believe drone pilot organizations have an opportunity and perhaps even an obligation to regulate ourselves with policies, procedures, and certifications that support the FAA’s drone regulations. Through camaraderie and group accountability, we will continue to meet our commitments to our community and to other organizations we support.

Thank you for partnering with us to improve the safety of the National Airspace System.
