Dragon-Backed Drone Safe Register Chooses Altitude Angel as Service Partner
London, UK: Altitude Angel, the industry-leading unmanned traffic management (UTM) technology provider, is to provide Drone Safe Register with map data which will support a new function on the UK’s no. 1 UAV directory. The UK company received financial backing in 2018 from Peter Jones, telecoms tycoon & investor, after appearing on the BBC programme Dragon’s Den.
Drone Safe Register provides consumers and businesses with a platform to locate and engage with highly skilled commercial UAV operators for specialised operations; from aerial photography and filming to surveying and mapping. With over 500 registered users, Drone Safe Register has empowered the drone and UAV industry by providing a simple and user-friendly mechanism to access talented and professional drone pilots across the United Kingdom.
By partnering with Altitude Angel, pilots and operators will be able to use the Drone Safe Register as more than a directory in which to be listed and to receive business opportunities. Through the integration of Altitude Angel’s industry-leading operational data, drone pilots will be able to search the area and airspace over which they’ve been contracted to fly through Drone Safe Register directly. This provides them valuable information such as ground hazards and possible airspace restrictions e.g. NOTAMs, making for a safer and more efficient operation. They will then also be able to access a comprehensive report outlining hazard ratings, thereby enhancing their understanding of the airspace they are operating in prior to the flight planning phase.
Toby Potter, Altitude Angel, Vice President, Sales and Partnerships, said: “By incorporating Altitude Angel’s industry-leading Airspace Map and Area Reports API into the Drone Safe Register platform, both operators and pilots will benefit from the increased functionality and a greater understanding of the airspace."
Mark Boyt, Drone Safe Register, founder and CEO added: “Altitude Angel’s airspace data is without rival, so we’re very pleased to be integrating it into our award-winning platform.”
