"Black Swan" performs its first flight
Dronamics has completed the first flight of its flagship aircraft, the "Black Swan", at Balchik airfield (Icao: LBWB) in Bulgaria. The world's first cargo drone airline describes this milestone as "the culmination of months of ground testing and subscale flights".
The 16 m wide, 4 m high and 8 m long unmanned aircraft with a cargo capacity of 350 kg and a range of 2,500 km, was remotely piloted by two commercial airline pilots from Dronamics' ground control station.
The successful flight test validates the company's licensed cargo drone technology for commercial flights in Europe, set to begin later this year, serving industries such as e-commerce, pharma, spare parts, and perishables with a fast and cost-effective solution to meet evolving consumer needs.
Co-Founder and CEO Svilen Rangelov: "We can now focus on the next step, the roll-out of our commercial operations." (ah)
