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 what he calls the “un-sexy” side of the business. 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.”

Hayden's company King Avionic is FAA certified to repair and maintain manned aircraft. Now he's working to establish a global UAS aviation repair and maintenance network—Robotic Skies—that currently numbers more than 100 independently owned repair stations focused on high-end, commercial systems. Although the Nevada company will work in the region, Hayden modeling his UAS business on King Avionics.

“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.
