Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) of Toronto completed a series of successful drone delivery test flights at the beginning of this month in Rome, New York at the Griffiss International Airport. These drone delivery test flights were the first conducted by DDC in the United States. DDC used its Transport Canada-compliant Sparrow Drone (with a lift capacity of about 11 lbs.), its proprietary FLYTE management system and its proprietary DroneSpot technology to conduct the flights. Chief Technology Officer of DDC, Paul Di Benedetto, said, “Testing at Griffiss was a natural extension for continued progress with our platform in [beyond visual line of sight], non-segregated airspace environment. An active runway with large aircraft, helicopters and general aviation aircraft is the latest advancement to our operations team airspace integration efforts and a progression from the knowledge learned during DDC’s [prior] operations.” These test flights had a 100 percent success rate.
