Spotlight: DronePort Network and Osage LLC announce Skyway36 droneport partnership

The Oklahoma City based DronePort Network (DPN) has entered into a contract with Osage LLC to develop and manage Skyway 36, a component of the Tulsa Regional Advanced Mobility (TRAM) Corridor project.

Skyway36 is composed of nearly 2,300 square miles of Class G airspace available for flight testing, newly renovated hangar and office space, a 3,000-foot runway with refueling capabilities suitable for fixed-wing aircraft, and helipad space for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) or electric vertical take-off and landing (eVOTL) vehicles. Located 4 miles from downtown Tulsa, the Skyway36 facilities feature adequate parking and an Osage Nation owned 40-acre light industry park ideally suited for manufacturing.

"We are thrilled about this new partnership with Osage LLC and Skyway36. This facility is nationally unique due to its proximity to an urban downtown complex and its future operation as a primary node to the Tulsa Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Flight Corridor. The vision for Skyway36 is a commercial test bed for the integration of autonomous flight technology into our everyday lives", said Craig Mahaney, CEO of the DronePort Network.

Osage LLC board member Rick Perrier shared, "We are excited to welcome Droneport Network to the Osage LLC team. As a top UAS and Advanced Air Mobility industry leader, DPN brings the knowledge, sophistication and business development skills necessary to advance Skyway36 into the future. With their focus on economic prosperity and job creation, we anticipate this new partnership to create high paying emerging technologies jobs in the Osage Nation."
