Payload Partner Program

Dream It. Design It. Develop It. Fly It.

Get Your Idea Off the Ground

FlightWave makes it easy for you to get your idea in the air — fast. We give you everything you need in the file below, from three-dimensional models, to data and power interfaces. There’s no obligation. Integrate your idea into our swappable nose cone, and you are free to manufacture it on your own, immediately.

The Flightwave Certification Program is for designers to partner with the FlightWave engineers. Our engineers will review the integration quickly and get you flying, letting you focus on your technology and your data.

Fast Prototyping

Once your payload is FlightWave Certified, we will partner with you in the manufacturing process— it’s that easy. Integrate your own technology the way you want to, snap your payload into the Edge™ aerial system, and start testing immediately. The Payload Partner Program gets your tech airborne in days or weeks, not months or years. Quickly gather data, identify any problems, and iterate your design without the usual expensive, time-consuming process. When your tech is ready to go, just apply for the official FlightWave Certification of your final design. We’ll get you into production fast.

Straight to Sales

Easily add your Certified technology to the catalogue of Edge™ payloads. Generate business for your technology by offering the payload as a swappable option for new and existing Edge™ users. FlightWave’s production methods easily adapt to your design, getting your technology into the hands of interested customers without the time and expense of building an aircraft from scratch. Leverage both the Edge™ ecosystem and future development to boost your sales with minimal effort.

Payload Certification Program

Share Your Ideas with the World

The FlightWave certification program tests and certifies payloads you design and develop through the Payload Partner Program. Once the FlightWave team certifies your proposed design to ensure safety, we’ll add your product to the accessories page in our store, where it will be available for sale to the whole world.

* Standard non-disclosure agreements are available upon request. FlightWave will not share any aspect of your technology with anyone else under any circumstances with or without an explicit non-disclosure agreement.
