Drone Delivery Canada Granted Approval by Transport Canada to Commence Testing its 25lbs Heavy Lifting Drone in the Canadian Skies

Drone Delivery Canada (DDC), a drone technology company focused on the design, development and implementation of its proprietary logistics software platform, using drones, is pleased to announce Transport Canada has granted the Company a SFOC (Special Flight Operations Certificate) approving the Company to commence testing of its Robin X1400 cargo delivery drone in Canadian skies.

The Robin X1400 is now fully integrated with DDC’s proprietary FLYTE management system and is capable of both larger payloads and greater flight ranges, of up to 60kms. Flight testing will commence in the second week of August, 2018.

The Robin X1400 (formerly the Raven X1400), as announced earlier this year will utilizes a state of the art dual payload deployment system which would allow both static and tethered cargo deployments. DDC believes the tethered deployment system is the future for delivery in urban settings. With the tethered solution, the drone never lands. It simply deploys its payload by tether while hovering above at a height of approximately 100 feet in the air.

DDC continues to also make advancements with it larger 400lbs payload drone known as the Condor.
