Skyward Core Features
Sourced from official regulatory bodies and meticulously validated by Skyward’s airspace experts, our map makes it easy to understand airspace requirements and flight restrictions, plan flight jobs, access U.S. controlled airspace via LAANC, fly safely, and show your crew exactly where to fly.
Skyward’s flight planning and logging features gives you the ability to manage your business operations and ongoing compliance. Easily assign pilots, observers and other crew members, equipment, scheduling, and documentation to a particular job. Custom fields allows you to track the metrics that matter to your business and jurisdiction.
Standardize operations using customizable checklists to meet requirements for internal compliance, airspace regulations, safety, and efficiency. Checklists work dynamically across the Skyward and the InFlight GCS. So, you can pull up a checklist and begin it on your computer at work, leave for a job, and continue where you left off on an iPad out in the field.
Skyward subscribers have access to the Skyward InFlight mobile app for iOS and Android. Plan automated or manual missions in the field, fly compatible drones to collect your data, and automatically sync flight logs into Skyward.
Skyward ensures the airworthiness of your fleet by giving you a systematic way to keep track of aircraft, batteries, and other equipment, including flight hours, incidents, maintenance tickets, and firmware upgrades.
Skyward helps you manage your crew, with pilot’s licenses, training, flight hours, insurance, and other documentation all in one place.
Professional aviation entails lots of documentation, and Skyward gives you a single place to store and organize regulatory approvals, pilot’s licenses, insurance policies, training protocols, preflight and postflight checklists, the general operating manual, work orders, invoices, and other documents.
