Skybase was an aviation startup, founded as a “Drones as a Service” business in 2017 in Christchurch, New Zealand.

In late 2019, it pivoted to instead provide “Aviation R&D as a Service”, focusing on developing technology upgrade solutions for existing aeroplanes. Through the years, Skybase has been well supported by Callaghan Innovation, the Civil Aviation Authority and Aerospace New Zealand. We are very proud of the work we did to advance aviation in New Zealand and to contribute to Advanced Air Mobility, globally. A link to some media coverage is below.
