Food delivery by drone?

Sep 17, 2021 | 0 comments

In April 2021 the Food Navigator website reported that UK based start up company sees.ai was given approval by the CAA to trial test deliveries by drone. This allowed the company to fly drones with a payload ‘beyond visual line of sight’ (BVLOS) at 3 sites without pre-authorisation before each trip.

The CAA said this trial heralded the next phase of growth of the drone industry to significantly increase operational effectiveness and efficiency. The trial is to show that the new technology can allow drones to fly autonomously alongside other airspace users. If proven it could pave the way for food deliveries by drone in the UK.
