SAN FRANCISCO – December 5, 2017 – Kittyhawk, the leader in commercial drone operations and management, today announced Flight Profiles, a key new feature to its expanding enterprise platform. After collaborating with customers, it became clear that as more organizations teams leave the “freelancer” or “contractor” model and begin to train more employees to fly, that a set of “common-sense” presets was necessary to help further reduce risk and empower their workforce.
Kittyhawk Flight Profiles allow fleet operations managers and Chief Pilots to automatically set and enforce a set of flight standards across their teams. Profiles can be set to prevent take-offs in “Attitude Mode,” set a standard “Return To Home” (RTH) Height, and restrict power exhaustion behaviors like Return To Home or Land In Place. Kittyhawk Flight Profiles can also set limits to how high and how far a drone can fly, ensuring compliance with FAA and internal company standards.
In addition, Flight Profiles provides greater transparency into the status of the aircraft’s control system before a flight. No longer will pilots have to contend with indistinguishable “ERROR” messages and will instead see the part of the flight control system that’s not functioning correctly and be able to make informed decisions about how to proceed.
Team leaders can now offer their members a set of policies designed to set them up for success. Operators get the benefit of uniformity in their operations with easy to implement settings that start with common-sense presets.
Flight Profiles is the latest in a suite of new features Kittyhawk has added to a platform designed specifically for the enterprise. As the leading enterprise drone solution, Kittyhawk works with customers across a wide range of industries including railroads, insurance, media, and inspection services.
Flight Profiles are available for Enterprise customers today. If you’d like to set up a custom profile for your team, let one of our friendly support staff know, and we can start disseminating that to your team’s accounts.
