A new technology will enable a drone to safely integrate into Canadian skies for parcel delivery. Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) recently finished its beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) trials in Alma, Quebec, completing the first phase of the company’s Remote Communities Project.DDC is a drone technology firm that focuses on designing, developing and implementing a commercially viable drone delivery system within the Canadian geography.

The test flights took place under both day and night conditions.

The goal of the test flights was to test DDC’s proprietary platforms: the FLYTE management system, the Sparrow cargo delivery drone, and DDC’s crews and procedures.

The company believes that their technology has the potential to change logistics in Canada as we know it today. They are now looking to bring the technology to the communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory next month to begin more BVLOS test operations.

Tony Di Benedetto, CEO, said: “With the Alma trials completed, we look next to our participation in the Transport Canada BVLOS Pilot Project, in Moosonee and Moose Factory, as we continue to move towards commercialization in Canada and abroad.”
