Aerodrome is planning to launch the world’s first commercial drone airport in Boulder, Nevada.
As drones become more popular there is an increased need for services for pilots. We have already seen Kittyhawk — a management app for commercial fleets of UAVs — and now Aerodrome is planning to launch the world’s first commercial drone airport in Boulder, Nevada.
Aerodrome offers UAS piloting and maintenance courses in the US. Earlier this month at CES, they revealed plans for Eldorado Droneport, which they hope to complete in the next three years. Drone pilots can currently fly their UAVs into regular airports, but this can cause problems because it requires special scheduling. Eldorado Droneport would be the first of its kind and is currently under application to the Federal Aviation Administration.
The ten acre drone airport would be available for use by both commercial drone pilots and hobbyists. Inspired by the medical training model, where students learn at a functioning hospital, Eldorado Droneport will offer the same training facilities at Aerodrome’s other sites with the added benefit of real air traffic.
Could similar sites be opened in other countries?
