Skyward, A Verizon company, to end operations

With heavy hearts, we are announcing that Skyward, A Verizon company, will be ending operations in the coming weeks.


This was not an easy decision. The Verizon Robotics team will be focusing our efforts on ground robot management, connectivity services, and solution development. While some of these solutions and connectivity services may also serve drones, aerial robotics will no longer be our main focus.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

We seek to give you the smoothest possible transition off Skyward without significantly impacting your flight operations. In compliance with our Terms of Service, we will continue to support the Skyward Drone Management Platform through June 30, 2022, at which point users will no longer have access.

In addition, Verizon is ending its partnership with Parrot. This means that Skyward will no longer sell Parrot drones, including ANAFI Ai.

Rest assured that Verizon is committed to data security and privacy. All customer data in Verizon systems will be handled in accordance with Verizon’s data privacy and document retention policies.

We have appreciated your partnership over the years, and all the groundbreaking innovation you’ve helped us accomplish. You, our customers, have been our greatest partners and allies. Sincerely, thank you for partnering with us to change the drone industry and take drone operations to new heights.

We hope Verizon can continue to serve you for years to come.


Onward. Upward. Skyward.
