Additionally, Yali Aerospace provides SkyBase (YNB), a drone hub that links hospitals to facilitate the transportation of medical supplies, AEDs, and organs. Furthermore, a single pilot can remotely operate and supervise numerous drones simultaneously from a distance using the company's ground control station software (YMC).
