Drone Delivery Canada has taken its operations to new heights with permission granted for a maiden BVLOS flight.
The UAV specialist has announced that Transport Canada has granted the company approval to commence beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) test flights in Alma, Quebec.
The test flights in Alma, Quebec are the first phase of DDC’s Remote Communities Project. Testing in Alma commenced August 13, 2018 and is anticipated to run until August 17, 2018.
This testing programme is a key part of our preparatory efforts for DDC’s direct participation in the Transport Canada, BVLoS Pilot Project. Upon completion of the Alma flights, DDC looks to commence testing in the communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory during a two week period in September 2018.
“Our team has been working vigorously alongside many key stakeholders including Transport Canada and the National Research Council, having spent months planning and preparing. Our drone delivery system is complete and fully operational. DDC and its customers are excited to now have our Remote Community Project underway as we drive forward to commercialisation,” commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO.
In Alma, DDC’s key stakeholders that will be attending the trials include Transport Canada and the National Research Council.
