Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) began development of its newest drone, the Condor, last week, which is being engineered to provide payload capacities of up to 400 pounds. The Condor will be able to accept pallet-sized payload shipments (for transporting bulk cargo—both in Canada and abroad) and fly approximately 93 miles. Most important, the Condor will be fully integrated with DDC’s proprietary FLYTE management system, which has been extensively tested in Canada and also recently tested in the United States at Griffiss International Airport in Rome, New York. CEO of DDC, Tony Di Benedetto, said, “Our engineering team is focused on building out our fleet to provide drones capable of addressing a wide range of client requirements in different geographies. The Condor will be our first delivery drone that offers our customers a platform for greater capacities of bulk shipments.” DDC will start testing its Condor drone late in 2018.
