Dronamics test-flies its middle-mile Black Swan delivery drone
Dronamics, the European drone transport company betting its future on what it believes will be a booming demand for middle-mile delivery services, has announced the successful first test flight of its flagship Black Swan UAV.
The first drone delivery firm to be certified as a full-fledged cargo airline by European Union regulators, Dronamics completed the initial trial run of its Black Swan craft at an airfield in Balchik. The city is located on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria – homeland of company founders Konstantin and Svilen Rangelov, who continue directing the startup they developed using the country as their base.
Dronamics said the first test outing of its Black Swan delivery drone was the culmination of months of ground testing and sub-scale flights, and was remotely flown from the company’s ground control station by two commercial airline pilots.
