As the technology changes and drone operators, both commercial and private update their hardware from time to time, it would go a long way if you considered donating your used UAV to this great cause. We will provide a donation receipt from the department that receives your donation with the resale value of the aircraft and any ancillary hardware. Imagine the impact your donation could have on a local community in need of this technology but unable to afford it.

The Airborne Works team hears from many departments across the country about how unaffordable this tech is, yet how valuable a tool it would be for their operations.

We will also publish on our website your name and or company with a logo web link, and we will list the recipient department that you helped with your donations. We will further ask that recipient department that receives a drone to keep us posted on just how they use the hardware to help protect the communities they serve. We will reach out to work with local news media outlets to make public, not only the department that received the donation but also your name and or company. We feel it is imperative that the communities receive education as to the value of these essential tools.

We request that your UAV hardware donation meet the following minimum requirements:

  1. The UAV must be in safe flying condition with controller
  2. It must have at least one working flight battery with charger
  3. It must have a moving camera (gimbaled is preferred but not required)
  4. No race drones, please.
  5. You must be willing to ship it to our facility. We will then thoroughly test it and will make all other arrangements with the receiving department for delivery.
  6. A case is not required but would be nice to add if you are able.

Thank you in advance for your consideration to help support the NPS-DDP mission to provide every department with eyes in the sky!
