Brad Hayden, president and CEO of Nevada-based unmanned aircraft systems company Robotic Skies, wants to fix the UAS industry. After growing up and working in the avionics repair sector, Hayden has started a UAS service offering he calls “un-sexy.” The company’s current mission is to help service and maintain UAVs for commercial service providers or end-users.

“When UAS businesses start coming online—which is starting to happen now—they’re realizing that they have a big need for warranty program management, field support and other services,” he said. “I determined that UAS was going to require very similar field support in a turn-key fashion to UAS manufacturers.”

Robotic Skies is currently focused on high-end, commercial systems. The team is certified to work on manned aircraft and UAS, according to Hayden. In addition to his family background in avionics repair, Hayden also has experience running a nationwide manned aviation repair and maintenance network that currently numbers more than 100. Although the Nevada company will work in the region, Hayden will model his UAS maintenance business after the nationwide entity.

“We’re maintenance professionals. We have a tremendous competitive advantage with our network because we literally have decades of manned aviation best practices that we can draw on to services this new market,” he said.
