Changing The World Through Drone Integration

Social Equity

As we've seen in other areas of infrastructure, access can inhibit social equity. We believe with the safe scaling of drones, we can reduce barriers to high demand, high paying jobs as commercial drone pilots, provide inexpensive delivery of critical services to those with reduced mobility, and so much more. We've built this company to make the world better, for everyone.

The Environment

In just 5 years, the implementation of drone delivery in a single U.S. metropolitan area could reduce up to 113,900 tons per year of CO2 emissions, equivalent to 46,000 acres per year of new forest. The more drones we can scale, the more CO2 emissions we can reduce.

The Economy

With so many use cases for drones to improve and advance industries from package delivery to precision agriculture to pipeline inspection, the commercial drone market presents an enormous opportunity for global economic interests. We're here to enable it all.

Founder Story

As a drone pilot and enthusiast himself, Michael Healander saw early on the challenges that the drone industry would face as it began slowly growing. Envisioning the positive impact that drones at scale could provide to economies and quality of life for people around the globe, Michael developed his concept of safe infrastructure to enable that progress.

What started as an idea was brought to life as the three co-founders put their heads together to create Airspace Link's AirHub® platform: a low altitude digital infrastructure designed to support the safe scaling of drones. The Airspace Link team is a family; both figuratively and literally. Michael and Daniel spent years working together on geospatial solutions prior to this collaboration, and Ana, who happens to also be married to Michael, brought her deep expertise in customer success and sales to support the product launch.

Today, the company is focused on bringing their vision to life through digital infrastructure, strategic partnerships, and thought leadership.
