CLEVELAND & SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Constant Aviation, one of the country’s largest maintenance, repair and overhaul businesses (MROs), has renewed its partnership with Robotic Skies, a global marketplace for drone maintenance services, to support a next-generation aviation sector: Commercial Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). Constant Aviation and Robotic Skies are at the forefront in these rapidly-emerging markets thanks to their continued partnership.

“Constant Aviation has been an authorized UAS service center since 2017, and we are proud to support the market for this emerging technology through our partnership with Robotic Skies,” said Kent Stauffer, Vice President of Quality, Safety and Technical Programs, Constant Aviation. “We see an important role both for established MROs like Constant Aviation but also for newer, dedicated drone service providers such as Robotic Skies and we are proud to work with them to support these emerging technologies.”

Constant Aviation has a wide range of experience with aircraft and aviation systems. The company serves the commercial and business aviation markets in the United States as well as foreign markets. It has expertise in composite repair and paint, fabrication, FAA parts manufacturing authority and harness and wiring. They also have Non-Destructive Testing capabilities (NDT) and technical instruction. Constant Aviation also boasts one of the largest AOG mobile fleets in the country that can repair any type of drone. It also has extensive capabilities in emerging technologies like electric vertical takeoff (eVTOLs) and other eVTOLs.

Constant Aviation is committed to staying at the forefront of new technology areas such as UAS or eVTOLs. We have committed significant resources to these platforms, including adding more FAA-authorized capabilities and repair station certificates to our certificate, with the express purpose to work tip-toe on all-composite planes and vehicles,” stated David H. Davies Chief Executive Officer of Constant Aviation. “Emerging technologies like UAS and electronic VTOLs require specialized expertise that is often inconsistent with standard repair station capabilities. Ratings are not always given for these types of skills. To that end, we’ve focused a great deal on expanding our composite and electrical troubleshooting/install capabilities to levels rarely found in Part 145 repair stations. That, combined with our already well-established and proven engineering and manufacturing processes, will allow us to be an industry leader in this arena.”

Founded in 2014, Robotic Skies has more than 230 independently owned and operated FAA Part 145 repair stations in its 50-country network. Robotic Skies’ field service programs, which include Constant Aviation as network members, are flexible and scalable. They can fulfill any maintenance-related regulatory requirements, such as those for complex commercial drone operations like autonomous package delivery or beyond-line-of-sight mission.

Brad Hayden, CEO of Robotic Skies, stated that they work closely with their commercial UAS manufacturers partners to create maintenance programs using a similar methodology to traditional aviation. “Continued Airworthiness” is a new concept in the drone industry. This shift in thinking is crucial to move forward in the realization that commercial drones operate in the National Airspace with incumbent flight operations. The drone industry will be able to realize its full potential through the establishment of a framework for safety and performance standards. “I look forward to continuing to work with Constant Aviation to use our collective aviation expertise towards a new aviation market.”

Hayden is a member of many industry groups, including the Federal Aviation Administration Drone Advisory Committee. He helps to create guidance to help commercial drone use accelerate and the burgeoning Advanced Air Mobility market. UAS Type Certification is another way that the FAA addresses drone safety and integrity. It’s similar to traditional aircraft certification.

Stauffer stated that commercial drone technology is rapidly developing alongside the regulatory and infrastructure environments necessary for safe and efficient operation. “Alongside FAA UAS Type Certificate, commercial drone operators will be responsible for having their maintenance, repair, and overhaul needs met by FAA-rated repair stations or personnel. We and our partners at Robotic Skies will be there to advocate for and serve the manufacturers, operators, shippers and passengers in these industries, and look forward to their development.”
