Drone delivery partnership established inThe Bahamas

Volans-i, an on-demand drone delivery business has reportedly entered into a strategic partnership with Fli Drone, to provide on-demand drone delivery services in The Bahamas, reports Commercial Drone Professional.

The companies have just successfully completed the first long-range UAV delivery in The Bahamas, something which could signify the start of aerial delivery.

The delivery originated at Abaco Aviation Services, a private FBO at The Leonard M. Thompson International Airport in Marsh Harbour and completed its delivery at Green Turtle Cay in 28 minutes.

Previously, the same delivery would require transit in both a car and on a ferry.

VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) capabilities allowed the drone to land and safely deliver its payload without any infrastructure required.

In total, the fully autonomous flight covered nearly 50 miles, crossing both land and water.

The flight also marked the first time that a UAV operated in controlled airspace at an active commercial international airport outside of emergency operations.

CEO and co-founder of Volans-i, Hannan Parvizian, commented: “Volans-i is excited to embark on this strategic partnership with Hogfish Ventures and offer drone delivery services in The Bahamas through Fli Drone.”

Adding: “We see The Bahamas as a nation that is willing and wanting to adapt to match the pace of technology. Innovation in delivery systems, such as the leaps that drone delivery systems have enabled, should allow everyone to have new ways to tackle the challenge of getting supplies where they need them at the exact moment they need them.”

Over the next 6-12 months Fli Drone confirmed it would expand its on-demand aerial delivery services powered by Volans-i in The Bahamas to 70+ locations serviced from 2 main hubs with a capacity of transporting 1,000 lbs. of cargo per day.
