Skyfarer, a medical delivery drone start-up based in Coventry University, England has begun trial flights.

Now, Skyfarer is working with the NHS in order to reduce medical delivery times with its UAV solutions.

Its drones can deliver organs, medical samples, blood and plasma to hospitals and medical facilities where they are urgently needed.

Founded by Elliot Parnham, an engineering aerospace graduate, the company is also partnered with Altitude Angel.
