DDC Completes First Canary Drone Flights in a Commercial Setting

Drone Delivery Canada Corp., known as DDC, is thrilled to announce the successful completion of the first flights in a commercial setting for the Canary remote piloted aircraft (RPA) on the Care by Air route, marking a significant milestone for the company and the drone delivery industry. The Care by Air route, covering a distance of 13.4 km, is the Company’s longest ever commercial route.

DDC successfully executed 3 round trip flights using the Canary on the Care by Air route, adhering to all Canadian Aviation Regulations. Notably, the third flight was completed in challenging wind conditions where the Sparrow RPA would not have been flown, highlighting the improved flight dynamics and versatility of the Canary over its predecessor.

The Canary RPA demonstrated enhanced performance in various flight measures compared to the Sparrow RPA. It completed the Care by Air route in less time, with a 9% reduction in flight duration, and consumed 42% less battery power. Additionally, the Canary showcased a remarkable 46% reduction in noise levels compared to the Sparrow RPA.

Future routes with the Canary are expected to be even more efficient due to its capability to fly over people, enabling direct customer routes, further reducing flight time, and optimizing utilization.

“The successful commercial flights of the Canary on the Care by Air route mark a significant milestone for our company and the drone delivery industry as a whole,” said Steve Magirias, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada. “We are incredibly proud of our team’s dedication and innovation, which has allowed us to push the boundaries of what’s possible in the realm of drone logistics. The Canary’s impressive performance demonstrates its immense potential to revolutionize healthcare supply chains and make a tangible difference in people’s lives.”

The Canary RPA incorporates advanced design, performance, and technology, featuring a payload capacity of up to 4.5kg and a range of over 20km. It is equipped with real-time communication and tracking systems, an integrated scale, and requires 50% fewer batteries than the Sparrow RPA. Safety is a top priority in the design of the Canary RPA, which comes equipped with a state-of-the-art parachute recovery system, ensuring the utmost protection of both people and property. This innovative feature enables the Canary RPA to fly over populated areas, expanding its potential applications and versatility.

In addition to its enhanced safety and performance features, the Canary RPA offers several benefits, including faster and safer delivery of essential goods, reduced delivery costs, and improved accessibility to both remote and urban areas. The Canary represents a significant advancement in DDC’s technology and capabilities, leading to improved operational parameters for customers and greater operational efficiencies for the Company. With the integrated scale designed onto the RPA, DDC can reduce ground infrastructure costs, expedite deployments, and provide a more robust solution to end customers. Furthermore, the Canary RPA contributes to a more sustainable future by reducing the carbon footprint associated with traditional transportation methods.
